If possible I would suggest doing a clean install of OS.

Laugh off AVG please. Not going to slag it off but the Microsoft freeware is better.

When you do your install of the OS, if you do that is, remove all the other hard drives except the one you are installing the OS on. Once you have done the install and graphic drivers then only reboot and fit the other storage drives if you are using any.

You will see a different I can promise you.


Thanks for the tip, I've been considering MS Security Essentials for a while.
Avast has become bloated and I've noticed WIn 7 takes longer to boot.
Installed Essentials this AM, so far it looks good and my boot time is now faster.

Hey NemesisChild I must say it is a surprise even to me how efficient the MS Sec Essentials is. I had some post grad students do a test of a couple of the available AV suites and SE came in really high even against the paid for opposition. So ditched my paid subscription (still had 18 months to go) and put this into a machine downstairs. Since then each new build has been MS SE.

Kaspersky gets very good ratings from the independent AV labs and for good reason. What we were looking at was protecting a new system, or as they say in the trade a clean system. And more significantly systems that are not all that new and therefore not that powerful. The lan that the PC's were being fitted into was being populated with quite old hardware. Budgets are so tight that they could not buy new every three years like they used to. So we thought it would be a good exercise to see what was on offer and which AV best suited our needs. And of course it was a very handy way of making the students think about real world stuff and not just have their heads in the clouds locked into theory only.

There were better AV products than MS SE, and MS SE does not have the quickest scan in the world. 🙂 But it is very good on a clean system and keeps a clean system clean. Plus very low on the overhead of the system resources.

You will be amazed at what turned out to be the best thing we saw and tested. My money had been on NOD32 actually but that was not to be. Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus had the smallest footprint of all and scored near perfect out performing all the big guns. Downside is you have to pay for it. 😛 We went for the MS SE because of cost, and our needs. Nearly three months on and the systems are still in good nick in the LAN.
