View Thread: Win7 RC AV
  • User profile image

    AVG's solution really sucked the life out of my computer, it's only a single core pentium about 3/4 years old but it made it so slow as to be unusable, my network card believed it had lost connection and trying to read outlook just failed. uninstalled and the machine is a super fast beast under 7. I'm not a user who is likely to get infections - i've not been notified of one in over 5 years but anyone got a suggestion of something, just in case?

    A firm believer in low user rights, my male 16 year old's machine has never been compromised and belive me he's not averse to trying to find porn sites. Do we need AV software for non admin users?
