Hi everyone !
I post this because I have a dilemma.
A friend recommended I install AVG full version on my computer, but the technician who usually fixes my computer whenever I have a problem told me that it would crash it and recommended I buy Karspersky instead.
It's true that on an older computer I have a blue screen problem since I installed AVG, the computer restarts automatically from time to time (crashes).
Both the friend and the technician also warned me that AVG could remove system files. Now I'm not a technician myself and I don't understand what this means.
I need a for-pay anti-malware solution that protects also against spyware and that is reliable enough. I only use the new computer for work, so it is very important for me to get a very good protection. I'm currently using Avast on the new computer but I know it is not very performant (I got infected by an USB virus and only AVG could remove the virus and clean the USB stick). Even Malwarebytes didn't find the virus, only AVG.
Yet if there is an alternative that doesn't risk crashing my computer, I would like to know, because crashes can result in data losses, which would be just as bad as a virus.
Can you please help me ?
