Since AVG Free 7.5 is ending support, I made the migration to 8.0. The program is bloatware, and like so many other "good" programs has decided to to do too much IMO. I've got all these extra processes running, I don't seem to be allowed to have as much control over the features as if I can't be trusted, and just have an uneasy feeling about the whole thing in general. Today I downloaded a WMV file from an e-mail someone sent me. As always before viewing it I right clicked on it and hit the "scan with AVG" option. The usual pop-up window didn't, but I had a blinky in the task bar. I opened that and AVG was doing a full system scan. I ended it, then went in the program interface and used the scan file option. The browse box opened but browsing to the folder that contained the video, AVG couldn't see the file. Well that tears it. I accept too much crap in the mail from friends who I love, but need to scan their offerings before opening any file or attachment. I'm done with this program and am on the hunt for a new freeware program and as usual would like to get feedback on my choices or any other free AV programs you like. I'm currently looking at the following 4 BitDefender Free Edition 10 Avast Nod32 Antivir Any feedback will be deeply appreciated.
