Avast has good AV benchmarks, but the interface takes some getting used to...

I too saw that AVG was a little heavy on resources and doesn't scan for rootkits...

You're probably talking about the older version (4.8). The new beta v5 looks great and has a straightforward interface.

Avast
Running latest ver on Win 7x64 Ultimate. I don't see anyone complaining about the speed of Avast I might have a bad load or something else. The scan speed is fine. But when I click to bring it up it takes forever and sometimes it stops responding when I am changing windows. Anyone else see this...
