At present I am using AVG anti-virus and was looking at PC World's reviews and ratings of anti-virus and AVG came in last with bad reviews. My question is I have been having problems with AVG lately and would like to change. Can someone please give me some advice on which one to get please? Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Many thanks and God bless.

See if any of these have a better rating, you can download one then disable the existing one from running at start up to see if the new one is an improvement, if not, try another one.

Importantly, set a restore point before downloading a new one, and make sure only one is set to run. Some anti virus programmes are reluctant to uninstall so best to leave the existing one to check it is the problem first

I fond of Avast antivirus now, its home version is free; have used DrWeb formerly it is quite good too.
