I have had AVG for a while,and was happy. Returned home from a two week work hitch to find my computer dragging its feet(slow),on line and off.
Messed around for a while trying to fix it. Nothing. Uninstalled the AVG,hoping a reinstall would help. It worked before with another program(?).
Found it to operate at a normal pace without the AVG. Great. Reinstalled AVG...very slow again.
Uninstalled it again. Fine. Installed AVG. Slow.
How come?
Have not tried anything else.

Thank you in advance.

Nothing unusual...
It'll slow some computers down.

Uninstall it, using AVG Remover: http://www.avg.com/us-en/download-tools

Download and install one of these:
- Avast! free antivirus: http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html
- Avira free antivirus: http://www.free-av.com/en/download/1/avira..._antivirus.html
