Since I installed Windows 10 I decided to avoid all commercial AV
programs cause they caused more problems than benefits. So far Windows
Defender do the job silently and it's doing quite well.
Is anybody else here using AVG Anti-Virus Free??
I've been using it for at least a couple of years, updating the
definitions daily and the program when advised that there was an update
Generally, each day after updating, I'd do a complete scan of my Windows
7 directories/programs, with nary a virus ever found!!
On April 9,2019, it's updated the program to ver 19.4.3089 - build
19.4.4318.455 and I've update the virus definitions several times since,
as well, so that I am currently using definitions ver 190420-4 released
April 20, 2019 @ 8:52PM.
Normally, it would take about 20-30 minutes to complete a full scan, or
at least that's when I would close the program, just leaving it
monitoring things down in the bottom right of screen.
However, over the last three or so days, it has failed to complete a
scan, even after 4-6 hours. When I close my HP 6730b Laptop before going
to bed, it would still be "Scanning for performance issues - scanning
for programs slowing down your PC".
Is anyone else, here, having problems with AVG Anti-Virus Free?? Or has
anyone recently had similar problems that they have managed to solve??
