Ad-Aware av software won't allow turning on of real-time protection - I have ZoneAlarm and...

Does anyone know how to get realtime protection to turn on?

Also, Avira's is the pits. It took took long to scan my PC - vs AVG
which took about 1/5th the time and caught way more than Antivir ever
did.

AVG, though, seems like so much bloatware and slowed my system down to
a crawl (my PC is a little on the old side now, running WinXP).

So I'm trying Ad-Aware's av software but the real-time isn't turning
on.  So far, only thing working right, still, is my Spybot.

Can anyone recommend a good, fast free antivirus program?  I used to
be so happy with AVG until they became so difficult to work with about
3 years ago or so.  I haven't been happy since, to tell the truth.
Antivir was never very good and now I find that it's really letting
things through.

Any av software tips appreciated.  Thanks.

Oh, should have mentioned that it installed itself as "second line of
defense".  I didn't feel safe without anything during the install, so
I only uninstalled Antivir.

Thanks.

Very confusing post.
Please try to state your problem as simply as you can.

PS: I use the free Avast. It has a small footprint on resources.

I would say there is something very wrong with your AVG.

I have used Avira Antivir for many years.
Antivir takes about as much time for scanning as my paid av-software.
It finds about just as much as the paid software.

Just did a (scheduled) scan of 1,048,057 files in 46:35 minutes.
No detection.

Most remarkable that AVG should find so much more in so much less time.
I would not trust your version of AVG.

AdAware? Zone Alarm? Spybot?

1998 just called wondering where their software went.

Panda works great on older XP machines.
