I used it a few years ago. I thought it bloated, slowed the machine down considerably.

I swear by AVG and recently when my machine was behaving awfully I tried the upgrade version and ran their fixit programme and my machine is now working beautifully.

I'm seriously considering paying for the upgrade.

Interesting comments

The talk on the MSE tech forum recently was that ...

AVG had become very bloated

Certainly don't use any 'boosting' add ons

Bitdefender was becoming the best.

Personally, I'm sticking with Avast as 'ain't broke, don't fix'

When I used MS products many years ago I used to use BD, but as others have said it became too bloated and started to slow my machine down, went on to use Kapersky for a while before ditching windows altogether and converting to Linux.

Anyone using Trend Micro? Any thoughts on it?

And anyone game enough to not use an anti virus? I have been contemplating it as most anti virus is resource heavy.
