I got a Win7 ver for the laptop. Seems ok, not as resource hungry as AVG was.
I removed AVG from this machine, (XP box) WHAT a hog! Went from ~600mb idle mem usage to under 300mb idle usage.
I got XP vers of Avira, but it kept crashing on install and wouldn't install.
So I tried Avast! OW my ARSE hurts! No, just NO! Even worse resource hog, & slowed browsing down to a crawl, regardless how I set it, + it would NOT let me go anywhere near anything owned by Google (like YT & GM) kept saying the certificates were invalid and no exceptions could be created! So I got rid of it!
Gonna try Panda for this old machine.
Wish me luck!
