GRRR!!! I'm really thinking of giving up on all things involving computers! lol
So, this weekend, the little woman got tired of not having up-to-date virus protection and one of her friends who is allegedly computer savvy, suggested she download AVG.
OK, no big, right? Well, after it finally downloaded and a scan was scheduled it started running....and running...and running...took a good 21 hrs to finish scanning! WTF?!? I know a scan is going to take some time, but 21 hours?
On top of that, since i has been installed, start up has been slowed down. Then of course, as with many virus scans, trying to run anything while its scanning requires lots of patience because it slows things down. I tried dropping on Entrecard and watching a DVD while it was scanning. It was like I was a on a dial up connection! Oh, the horror!
So, I'm going to contact my various computer connections and see what can be done about this and if AVG is worth this trouble. I will say it did find quite a few viruses that Norton didn't pick up.
Any of you have any ideas and/or suggestions?
