Still using AVG Antivirus software? STOP!!!

Over the past few months I've found myself fixing virus-riddled machines which have had AVG Antivirus installed on them, it doesn't seem to matter if it's the free or paid versions, all I can say is for some reason AVG keeps letting the nasties through. My advice would be to uninstall AVG NOW and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials which like AVG is FREE and you have the peace of mind that its' written by the same company who built Windows in the first place.

To summarise my experience so far has led me to believe that Microsoft have got this one right! Everything I've thrown at SE has been handled with ease. It stays out of the way, doesn't hog system resources, and provides a good level of protection from common viruses and malware.
