hi i installed avg8 free, and I must say i am not very impressed, simply because it is now a "smart" program. with this i mean that it now makes its decisions automatically, and that for me means its going Nortons way. for example, avg antyspyware is now integrated, but it has no options besides on or off, i cant fine-tune it for my use. and i notice generally it uses more cpu power, slowing my comp. have you used it? what is your opinion?
