I was recently asked by a family friend to advise on buying a Laptop, they needed a basic Laptop and wished to go wireless, within thier budget I drew up a short list and on my advice they bought an ACER 7730 from PC World (The only local PC seller).
When we were buying the ACER the sales assistant tried to sell us Anti Virus software (nothing wrong with that) however when I responded saying no thanks we will be using AVG he replied - you cant use AVG with windows Vista it recognise system files as viruses and deletes them?!?!?
I tried to back up my stance by saying that if this were true it would not automatically delete them but ask for confimatio before doing so.
Hence my question - is AVG Free compatible with Windows VISTA, or is the PC World salesmans claim correct or misguided, I have used it without fail on XP machines for months a couple of years now.
