AVG screws every computer up.... i used it, then uninstalled it then installed avast, and my computer got SOOOOOOOO slow. it would take 5 mins to boot up, and gaming FPS dropped a lot! ive tried everything to fix it, but nothing worked, so i just did a clean re-installed windows and that worked perfectly.

ohhh BTW same thing happened to my grandmothers computer and my moms

Yep and what I think a lot of people don't know is that AVG leaves a lot of reg entries in the registry even after using the removal tool which maybe why you had the problems you had Quadrider

Me I just take them out - but this is only done if you are sure and confident of doing stuff like that in the registry.

So anyone reading this be warned!!

hey guys, i thought i was done, but kinda wrong....some of my partitions (internal seagate (disk2)) are giving me problems..
they are listed in disk management as healthy (at risk) & i have been denied all permissions even though im the admin myself... how do i fix this?

EDIT: i restarted the comp, & disk2 was read as dynamic & invalid.... shit. e & f drives missing... i worry this most because it contains all my 3dsmax files & textures...

as for fixing the comp, i followed this guide Sean's Windows 7 Install & Optimization Guide for SSDs & HDDs

Did you remove Windows 7 from all hard drives except the SSD?
What have you done sense your post #28 when you were fixed?
Upload a picture like this. Full size so we can see everything.
Computer/right click and choose Manage/choose Disk Magement.

Tell us what is on each partition.

How close did you come to getting a perfect reinstall as outlined in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7?

If it varied much I would consider doing it over if you have any ongoing performance problems.

i say it's about 80-90% perfect reinstall, im almost getting back my benchmark of booting up in 18 secs for all my programs installed, currently it's clocked @ 26secs

shutting down my bench is 12secs, currently it's between 17-28secs... it varies when doing updates

but i still lost about 40% of data due to avg & the dynamic disk failure...

i still recommend http://www.overclock.net/t/1156654/s...-for-ssds-hdds it's still one of the best & very detail
