I used to have AVG 7.5 anti-virus software in my machine and used to work while I browsed through the net using IE7.I used to get fed up for how slow it has become after AVG installation and sometimes worse than that, I could nt even do others things using ms office programs while browsing for if I would so,the next thing to do was to press the reset button to keep mouse back from doing it job.
Yes, there were large programs in my computer (ms office,picture package,media player,photoshop,dreamweaver,flash,ym,msn messnger,IE7) but I would say none of these was the culprit of making my computer slow down.Cause when I uninstalled these 3 web designning tools, it didnt help to give at least 3% increase in its speed.With this situation, I opened the add/remove program, looked into the list of installed programs and I turned my eyes into AVG.Rmoving this resolved this issue and made my computer back to its normal speed but it left confusion and disappointment in my mind.
Could this be os related or there is something wrong with the combinations of programs installed?Should there be also rules on this or how will I know that the set of my programs deteriorates my system?
Below is my PC Specs
