Andy Jackson Tech: Windows 7 woes - AVG (2011) clash? (24) RE: Tech: Windows 7 woes - AVG (2011) clash? 15 Dec 10


I run an Acer laptop and a homebrew desktop, both on Win XP. I've used and recommended AVG free for years. Then I downloaded 2011 free..Since then nothing but trouble...sometimes 1/2 hour to settle after start up. Freezing and random reboots. VERY slow generally.
I gave up and installed Microsoft security on laptop and all is now nearly better. Still slow start up but not as bad. Incidentally I also used AVGs PC Tune up so may have inadvertently destroyed stuff. Now archiving files with a view to a complete reinstall.

Bloody puters.
