tnx.^^BTW, I wonder how long these daily pop-up 'buy AVG ads' will continue to appear.
It's no biggie, but they seem a little persistent. (see attachment in previous post)-bit (August 09, 2015, 09:30 AM)
Just consider them your daily notification that AVG is running. It's when you don't get a pop-up in the free version that you should worry.-app103 (August 11, 2015, 07:20 PM)
Waa haha!Then there was the cook who came to the doctor with an aching ear.
He looked in her ear, and identified a small piece of potato lodged painfully there.
"My dear," he said to her, "your ear is irritated."-bit (August 09, 2015, 09:45 AM)
When she found out the doctor was a beer drinker, she said "Doc, this spud's for you!"-MilesAhead (August 09, 2015, 10:56 AM)
Tnx for the heads-up on Windows 10!I see from this thread that a lot of DCers are excited over a free upgrade offer to Windows 10. I have to ask, what's so great about Win 10, and will it bog down my OS when it is barely running smoothly on Win 7?-bit (August 04, 2015, 10:42 PM)
Windows 7 was easy to run, compared to Vista. Windows 8 was easy to run, compared to Win 7. Windows 10 is easy to run, compared to Win 8. Replacing your current system will make life easier for your machine
-if your drive has the space! It's not just "+10GB" as some said. Win 10 will also keep your current files, so in real life (with updates, and stuff) it will need in the area of 50GB free.
I hope you later on will come back, bit, to tell how life with the Panda has been.-Curt (August 09, 2015, 02:36 AM)
Okay, I'll hold off on any switch from AVG-free until I can get a little better idea of Panda has a bad habit of false positives or not, and thank you for that perspective!"The current winner, Panda, blocked 1,894 out of 1,895 attacks — none of them requiring user input — for a near-perfect score of 99.9 percent."-bit (August 09, 2015, 01:32 AM)
the other side of the coin is false positives - I find "none of them requiring user input" in the quote above a little scary tbh. - is it going to e.g. decide anything made via AHK is dangerous and must/will be deleted - without asking you?
FWIW, Panda is not the worst at false positives according to your link - but AVG has very good (low) false positives.-tomos (August 09, 2015, 04:36 AM)
I take it MSE is Microsoft Security Essentials?^app103, I am now running AVG free, and already seem to be proving out your xlnt advice with fewer and milder crashes. Many tnx! (:

Just passing on some of the best AV advice I ever received for an older PC.
Here is an additional piece of advice: Stick to the free version and do not buy the paid version.
The paid version will likely come with a bunch of extra features that will defeat the whole purpose of switching to a lighter anti-virus. If you don't have the extra features, you won't be tempted to turn them on.-app103 (August 01, 2015, 04:43 AM)
