Installed Avast a couple months ago... changed from AVG Free. Noticed my Lenovo Y550 Win7 laptop running slower. We also had just hooked up a new smart tv plus another tablet to the network, so I didn't think too much about the issue.
Last week we upgraded to AT&T Uverse 18Mbps. Laptop is still slow.
Went to the tutorial "4 Simple Steps for Removing Spyware, etc" and downloaded Trend Micro Housecall... after 4 hours, I cancelled.
Today, I was doing a search and saw there are lots of AVG files still around, even though the program is no longer installed.
Went to "Uninstall Programs Database" and downloaded Revo Uninstaller, but AVG does not appear and there is not an exe.
Now I have decided to not touch anything else until I get help. Not sure if the Avast is really working also.
