I have installed AVG Free on many computers and have not had any problems with it. It does a good job of cleaning up infected systems.

I also recommend AVAST, http://www.avast.com which is free for non-commercial, home use. You only need to register it once per year. It has a very good boot time scanner that I use to clean up systems that won't otherwise boot, or have very persistent viruses.

    Yes, it is safe. I have run 2 anti-virus programs on machines with the only problem being that sometimes one program will not want you to run a second.



    Another problem with doing it is that they usually take up a substantial amount of RAM memory, so running 1 is usually better than running 2, especially if you don't have a lot or RAM.

Hello,

Try out avira anti virus. It gives free updates. And you choose to pay if you want to become a premium subscriber.

Go to www.avira.com then download it to your system.

Runs very slow,has been repaired twice for viruses


Have you tried a Disk Cleanup? This can often cause computers to run slowly. Look under Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools.

Removal of AVG8


Try bootin to safe mode by pressing F8 on turning on the system then try to uninstall by going into the control panel [Programs(vista)/Add or Remove Programs(XP)]

By doing this you will be able to uninstall the AVG anti virus.
Then restart and the system will boot in normal mode then install Kaspersky. Never have 2 anti virus in a system. Just a word of caution.
Cheers !

Uninstall of software


Sounds like you did not do things in the correct order or you did not reboot between the AVG uninstall and the Kapersky install, so that it looked like AVG was still loaded.

Since Kapersky is not installed, the best way to proceed is to start from a fresh reboot, download and re-install the AVG free edition to get the registry entries corrected. Don't bother with updates as it is coming back out again. Reboot and uninstall AVG. Reboot again and verify AVG is gone before attempting to install the Kapersky.

AVG free can be downloaded from free.grisoft.com assuming you mean the 8.0 version, not 7.5, otherwise try downloading from www.filehippo.com and select the older version.
