Not every antivirus software or anti-malware software has the identical detections. If they did, why would there be multiple products?

As to asking which A/V is the best product, you could receive as many recommendations as people who respond to your question because it seems everyone has a favorite. The best A/V product is the licensed or free A/V that works well on your computer and has the features you are comfortable with.

A/V is not the only line of defense. A good anti-malware software with real-time protection as well as keeping your software up to date with all security updates. This does not mean just Microsoft security updates but also products by Adobe and Oracle SunJava.

Now that the "lecture" is over , have you run Malwarebytes as previously suggested?

Definatly you need a new anti virus Avg is no good for you
im not a big fan of it myself it runs extra programs in the task manager which helps slow your pc down
it wont be any good for you
Yes there is free antivirus software out there BETTER than Avg
such as
Avast - it gives you a online scanner to so if any sites you may come across which leaks a bug through your pc it will pick it up straight away i like to say its like NOD 32 it does exact same job i have it myself.
Malwarebytes - this is a great ! scanning program but if its thhe free version you wont be able to run it full time unless you have a serial key but its great for detecting spyware trojans etc...
NOD32 - this i would certainly recomend no no its not free i know
but put it this way
it will do everything you want it to do it will pick up your socks and put them in your draw !
im sure you can get it off siites i cant say because its windows 7 forum i goot a warning already lol
but have a look round anyway but certainly
ii would recomend get a new antiivirus !
Good Luck !
