Suggestionsl For AVG Alternative?

11 replies
My computer is getting slow. It is very expensive and used to be fast when I bought it 4 months ago.

I am currently using AVG Internet Security Premium 2014, its okay but I am wondering if there is anything better? Norton?

    Try Avira antivirus ( it's free ) and a free anti-malware like malwarebytes. Avira is really good and many times it stops harmful programs on the spot.

    I really like MalwareBytes. I have a bunch of security on my computer and 4 bad guys got through. They found them and deleted them....TRY IT FOR FREE! ( They do have an paid upgrade, I never did it.

      I had the same problem - my laptop got very slow and the fan was going off all the time. I bought Spyhunter, which is awesome. It's not free but it's not very expensive and finds trojans, malware etc that AVG doesn't detect (use AVG too).

      Hope this helps,

        Don't install Norton - it actually can slow your computer down even more. Malware bytes not recommended since it is virtually useless without the paid upgrade. Personally I feel this is one area people should bite the bullet and pay for a solution. AVG and Avira a good, but for something as important as your computer performance (especially if you work or market online) it's worth spending a little money on. I use mostly Mac's but have one Windows PC I use Webroot - works great. Here is a list from PC Magazine of their top 45 tested anti-virus 2014:

          I have been very happy with iolo System Mechanic Pro.
          One license allows you to install it on every computer you own (I have six at present), and aside from anti-virus, it has numerous tools to clean up and optimize your computer.
          I also run the free version of Piriform CCleaner every day to remove clutter.

    I use avira, superantispyware and malwarebytes and I find they do a good enough job for me. They fix all the problems they find and I know that Avira works better than AVG because I used to use that and it didn't find much but when I changed, Avira found a lot more.
