AVG help please

I recently downloaded the free Kaspersky anti virus jobby but it slows my pc down even when not scanning, i now have AVG instead(free version), when it finds the viruses does it sort them out or do i need to do something after the scan to get rid of them as it just closes when the scan is complete(after around 6 hours!!)

It should remove them.

delete avg and get avast ....... it will do a root scan when you reboot the pc and find the nasties avg cannot find :thumbsup:

If it finds any during the sacn it will pop it into a "vault" and will ask you want you want doing with it.

Is Avast a lot better than AVG - never tried it before - might give it a go................

........with AVG, go to Advanced Settings, Scan - there will be tick boxes to say if you want infections to be automatically healed/removed. I think these are ticked as default, but worth checking.

Did you get sorted ok?

infinitely better. AVG is a very poor product of late.

the problem lately with AVG is that a lot of viruses aren't flagged at all. Noticed lots of threads on here by people saying once they put on kaspersky etc, then lots of viruses came up that avg had missed for years.

I wouldnt touch AVG at all now despite being an avid supporter for years.
