I go to network connection > LAN > properties and make no change but only press OK , I get this miniport thing.

I been using paid AVG in 2009-10 but since 2011, I'm free AVG user. Im using avast free and avg free same time. I'm not sure if AVG is worth keeping , since Avast free is working pretty good along with free eset scanner and adware cleaner.

Any help eradicating this avg miniport problem and AVG in general would be awesome.

Thanks

You shouldn't have two AVs running. It will screw up your system. You need to get rid of one of them.

Remove AVG by downloading the AVG removal tool in effect the Miniport network filter would go as well with the error.

I don't use either but I think most of the experts here would tell you that AVG ain't what it used to be. Ditch it.

Hi -
The free versions are 99% as good as the paid versions these days, s why not try the free version for a while ??
This is a starter list of the better free Antvirus versions - I have never paid for any Antivirus - Just my views -
Be sure to only install one.

Microsoft Security Essentials (what I currently use)
Avira AntiVir
avast!

This can be added to with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free and SuperantiSpyware Free or in paid / active versions -

Regards -

I prefer the free versions too. Im using avast antivirus after uninstalling AVG free , but free avast version does not have link scanner. And I was wondering if microsoft security essentials is really good?
I got malware bytes and adware cleaner and eset online scanner.
shud i keep all 3 ?

IMO, link scanners and site advisors are overrated and unreliable because the ratings are subjective. If someone wants to sabotage a legit website with a negative score, that can be done.

You can install Web Of Trust(WOT)addon for your browsers instead of link scanners which could sometimes cause browsing problems.
