Dear AVG Free user,
You have a unique opportunity to get more security and benefits with our new AVG 7.5 products.
Yes. I have done that with both Norton and McAfee in alternating years. Both slowed PC startup and shutdown. Not really a problem for my 24/7 HA PC but my it became annoying with my laptop. With AVG, my laptop startup/shutdown is 1/4 what it was before.Mike said:You can usually get Symantec and Mcafee 3-user versions for free (or close to that) if you watch and are willing to fill out rebates.
Buy.com and Outpost.com have them frequently (sometimes CompUSA, CircuitCity and Buy.Com).
Rebates are annoying but it would get you the software for free (or close to it) with a little work (and $90 is worth a few minutes of effort).
And I was going to put this off until the end of the period expecting the free product would suck.... now you are making me want to download it...JohnWPB said:EDIT: The new update is nice, they updated the GUI as well. I no longer feel like I am running a Windows 95 program
