I have tried some antivirus, they all have various stupidness.
Now I'm trying this, it looks similar to avast, but just wiser in some way about user experience.

Probably the best free anti-virus around. Have been using it since 7.5 and it keeps getting better. Loads of useful features and it's pretty CPU friendly too!

AVG become more bloated every release

Worked with AVG since 6.0 till 8.5 and saw the program becoming more bloated every release, now I'm running Panda Cloud AntiVirus which has less options and less unnecessary bloat.

I circled throw most popular anti-viruses, but they all now have the same problem. Each of them is big, clunky, annoying and impudent. I guess it's time to try less widely promoted solutions.

Poor detection.

about AVG AntiVirus and Avast! Free Antivirus · ·

Poor detection, I have had many issues with it finding viruses. I had users uninstall it and install Avast and they found viruses.

I would suggest moving to avast.

To many false positives, to many computers I've had to clean that were running it lately. I now stay away. Maybe it will improve again next version.
