I left AVG because it seems to get the system a little slow. But, currently, I am engaged with just troubles trying to get a convenient one. Avir has a huge intollerable troubles at updating that makes it straightly bad. NOD 32 3 scans to slow. I think that I will go back to AVG. Is it any reasonable motive for not doing it? Many thanks

I used AVG for a while and found it to be slow when scanning, it refused to ask me what I wanted to do with suspicious files, it just deleted them and was one of the hardest programs to remove as it left services on the system, installed hidden files, and left countles enties in the registry.

Antivir has a very impressive detection rate and scans at a good speed. You mention that it has "intollerable troubles at updating" Do you have any more information about this?

Also have you defragmented your system? as ths could have an effect on scanning times
Regards,

Alan.

Straightly I couldn't update it several times. The blue line arrives to the end (100%) but says that the internet connection failed and didn't get updated. Greetings and thanks

If you open up Avira you can find the update logs and view what the specific error is.

Alan.
