same, i wouldn't say i've had zero virii, but they've ALL been detected.
Removing AVG and installing Symantec corp to see 10 trojans detected was rather scary... if the user hadn't had symantec corp installed he'd never have known =/

*I* would never have known even, since there were no unusual processes running or unusual behaviour as far as i could tell.

I just don't trust AVG anymore =/ Never really liked it because of it's compatability issues / causing programs to crash but that really took the cake.

I've been using AVG for years and I'm quite happy with it... on AVG8.5 now...

That said I don't think any one AV will ever sufficient... so far I've been really lucky...
