I ignored way too long. I knew AVG was slow but I just read the report - it takes over 5 hours to scan my computer!! I looked at Geeks Antivirus recommendations and see Avast! is your top rated program.
(1) Is Avast! compatible with Win XP in my little HP Pavilion a1400e?
(2) If I understand all this - I go Start > Control Panel > Add Remove Programs > select AVG Free 8.0
WAIT - if I'm set to use this all the time and it does a daily scan, why does it say last time used (3) was over 3 months ago??
(4) The icon on my bottom tray shows AVG Anti-Virus Free - could I have more than one AVG program even though only one shows in Add/Remove Programs?
(5) After this is all settled I just go download Avast! and follow directions, any pointers there?
Much thanks for the time and suggestions!
