I bought a copy of AVG 8.0 and ended up not_too_impressed by it. I
opted for NOD32 instead. No problems.

That reminds me of my  experience with one PC a few months ago.
Previously the AV installed was AVG version 7.5 and it was running
well, but when the support for that  was removed by Grisoft  then I
replaced it with the AVG version 8 hoping it was a better product
but...
 It created problems for that PC as it slows it down  and its malware
detection rate was inferior compared to the version 7.5
. So I uninstalled it and to my surprise it left a lot of residues
that I have to clean up the registry to remove its traces so that I
can install the NOD 32.
After that the PC did not have any more AV related problems implying
that there is really some incompatibilities with the  installed AVG
version 8.

         I am running AVG 7.5 supported.  Why was your support
removed ?     VOJEP.

Dunno, just stopped by itself and there is this notice that this
version 7.5 will not supported anymore for updates and you need to
install the version 8?
However I am glad it happened that way as I found out that NOD32 was a
lot better than AVG.....

              OK, Roy, but it hasn't happened to me.    I wonder if you
got caught up in some advertising stunt.   VOJEP.

Hmm....don't give a damn about it, ,,, as long as the  changes from
AVG to NOD 32 was for the better  and I even blamed myself sometime
why did it took me too long to implement the ESET advantage for that
particular PC? I should have done it earlier....
