It seems most/(all?) of my browsers are all still tending to lock.


It's a crime what AVG has done to you and your system, shove in Google's and Firefoxs' maintance at any time, and your system's running for their benefit, as they aren't doing you any good.
I think it's worse that a bit of maintenance by the browsers. Bot Google and Firefox seem to regularly seize up completely for minutes at time. Ironically I couldn't even get at this forum last night in Chrome(!)

I am a webmaster and so I need to use ALL the browsers regularly on the sites that I maintain.

AVG I'll need to replace soon because my main company client is winding down and the license will expire. Do you have any strong recommendations?

The truly bizarre thing is that when my Chrome slows down I still get "Waiting for" at the bottom left of browser window.

It's as if the websites in question have slowed up because they know it's Chrome!
Meanwhile if I open up say MSIE it loads the exact same page without a problem.

Bizarre, no?

Yep very weird but predictable,
Between AVG and Chrome which both seem to sucking as much juice as anything I've ever seen lately,

I'd say anything but AVG or Mcafee or anything from IOBit at this point as an alternative

SSD suggestion
I have some gift cards waiting to be used at a local retailer. I think I'd like a 120-128GB SSD. I'm hoping someone would be able to check out the SSDs available and let me know what the best or best bang for the buck purchase would be. It would be the OS drive for the system in my specs. Below...

Would it be interesting if in the user cp (or somewhere on the forum), if there was a way to invite friends/family to sf forums by inputting their email address. I know a few people who are tech savvy who would do well here if they weren't already here. :)
