Have you compared it with MSE to know for sure it isn't slowing down your system?

Ok have did a test there slight bit of a faster load up when in windows. (Programs open about 10 seconds quicker than it would normally would.)

But then what about the protection?

You'd really have to have someone who gets infected to compare the two's efficacy. What I do is have those Typhoid Mary/Harry types add Malwarebytes Real Time protection to MSE. Changing to Avast doesn't seem to make much difference. You'd have to have them try AVG instead to see if they get infected, those who regularly do.

I don't trust or believe in any of the ratings as they are all commercialized. Our experience here is much more valuable, which is why I trust all of use settling on MSE, closely trailed by Avast.

I'm glad you brought this up since many of us also seem somewhat betrayed by AVG after it was so highly favored as the best free AV during the XP years, until it swelled up and began to affect performance on that era's hardware. A similar contempt is expressed toward Spybot with its buggy TeaTimer that seemed to ruin it as a favorite all at once.
