lol, took me about 40 mins to scan my laptop with Avast, but only 25 with AVG. On my desktop, it only took me just over 15 mins with AVG.

Never tried avast but it takes 14 mins for my AVG to scan my whole pc and that's enough fast for me.

AVG updates every 2 days or so. Not the best, but good enough, i think.
