"So far, so good!"
Free, and by all accounts a very capable antivirus to rival many of the paid offerings. Have experienced none of the hogging of system resources trumpeted all over the internet, and no slow down to my pc's functionality. Although there is a slightly longer shutdown time.
Have had only about 30 hrs, so there is still plenty of time to able to reach a more thorough perspective. My only peeve at this point is that I could not get my Live.com email account configured to be scanned. So far my inquiry about that on AVG's forum has been met with silence.
For years I have heard how good this antivirus is. Then there was talk about how it had gone down hill, and is now enjoying something of a renaissance again. I never tried AVG before because I'd been quite happy for years with avast! However, I decided to give AVG a go after becoming disillusioned with avast since the advent of v7, and its numerous issues with my pc. I will update this review in the weeks to come with a more informed impression of this venerable product.
