I have been using AVG for years now and have been quite pleased with it. Just lately though my boot-up times have been getting longer and longer. Yesterday it took nearly and hour! When I clicked on the AVG icon the options appeared 'greyed out' and there were no components showing? I did a complete uninstall and downloaded a fresh copy this installed and ran OK until I rebooted then my PC just wouldn't complete loading. I went to the AVG support site but obviously could complete the details because I can't access the AVG control panel. I have now removed AVG again and installed a free copy of Avast. My PC is now running perfectly. I'm getting fed up with this because I have wasted hours on it.
I use AVG Internet Security 9.0 and I'm running MS XP Home Edition, Version 2002, SP3, PC is Pentium Dual Core CPU 3.4Ghz with 2Gig RAM.
