Really? Tweakguides? It's a great site, but you're suggesting that I should have to hack my program to make it usable? Why? I used AVG Free for a long time, but switched for a couple of reasons. 1) It doesn't perform very well in av tests (try AVComparatives.org). 2) Unless I had email to respond to, my computer wasn't usable during a virus scan. So, why on Earth would I want a virus scanner that hogs resources while simultaneously not doing its job very well? If it were the ONLY free scanner on the market, fine, but there are better options. Me? I ended up just paying for Eset's NOD32 Anti-Virus.
