I used to find AVG 7 used alot of my CPU thats why turned to Comodos internet security, run with NOD32 it works great.

I trialled the 8.0 today and found the resident shield too intrusive, I know that the odd site I visit is "dubious" but that's my decision, I refuse to tolerate third party "censorship" so I uninstalled it. Back to 7.5 for me tyvm

2.1MB of memory, zero cpu

I call that a reasonably small footprint

Avast is so much better than AVG and picks up trojans that AVG misses. I would recommend Avast to anyone.

The both are good, just for free!

But I prefer more AVG 7.x editions, like them a lot.

Maybe it's a big conspiracy! When 8 comes out for free AVG will send out tons of information-stealing viruses and we wont know a thing!!

Mikee thats because you have HOODLUM crack, so to go get a better one you will need gameburnworld.com and search for gta sa, o and btw, its a hypu ? or something tojan?

That will bugger your pc after a while as I used it as a .exe for the game.

i think avg healed it now because it doesnt show up as a virus anymore and gta still runs w/o cd or can these viruses hide themselves from the av then come up and screw you later?
