I can't really think of any myself except that once you install it,, it can sometimes be a nightmare to uninstall if you decide you don't like it.

<p>AVG offers a number of compelling features and the right technology to keep your PC protected. As one of the best antivirus software products reviewed, AVG offers a great solution that delivers advanced protection and simple use. But apart from these AVG have some advantages and Disadvantages.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>Advantages<br /> <ul> <li> Protection: - AVG Anti-Virus is fully armed to protect your computer from threats from a number of angles. The software includes antivirus and antispyware protection, as well as complete online protection from harmful sites and downloads.</li> <li> Ease of Installation: - AVG Anti-Virus is easy to download and install.

Users who deleted the file in question were put on a continuous reboot loop. The problem was rectified a few days later with a new signature database and further safeguards were added to the product.

I am on dial up internet and have installed, Norton 360. My computer is very very slow now. Has anyone else had this problem and what do you use for internet software? Thanks Shirley


Norton is a very secure antivirus....
But it also have its disadvantages....
Its updates are heavy and it usually continuously scan your computer making it very slow...

I recommend that you use a lighter antivirus like avira, avast and avg.....

and I know that AVG can be updated from pendrive meaning you can donwload the update file on another computer at work for example and run it on your pendrive to update it....

Hope it helps

Removing norton ghost before reinstalling


If you tried removing Ghost yourself by deleting foulder or files then it will not appear in the add/remove list. Try reinstalling it and then using removal tool. Make sure you have correct one for version and your OS. My advice is stay away from Norton products, they severely slow down performance and hinder daily activities. There are free tools online that work much better.

Trying to reinstall norton ghost v14


you need to remove Norton with Nortons own removal tools. Add/remove program not the same thing as it leaves stuff in the registry. Go to norton.com and get removal tool..Run it, then try the re-install.
