Has anyone else had problems with AVG 9.0? For the past year I've been happily (aside from small problems with my mobile dialup) using AVG 8.5 and PAYING for it *shudder*.
After upgrading to 9.0 things started to get squirrily on both of my PC's - a laptop for work running XP and a desktop with Windows 7.
The main issue on the desktop was with iTunes. Every time I tried to download stuff, the download failed and then Win 7 reports that nothing can start from the desktop due to resource issues and the network connection would hang. 4GB of Ram and a 1TB hard drive means that this isn't the case. A reboot would eventually be needed at which point I would need to force a restart.
The laptop nearly ended up in Yokohama bay last week as I tried to access a pdf file and the bloody thing locked up numerous times (I was in the middle of conducting an inspection on the dockside and REALLY needed the data). Then I found that Word and Excel were doing the same sort of thing.
The only thing I've changed recently was the upgrade to AVG 9.0, so as an experiment I uninstalled it from both and everything is as sweet as a sweet thing. Everything works fine now so one can only assume that AVG 9.0 was the culprit.
Anyone else experiencing similar trials with AVG? I'm planning to go a bit hatstand with them, but would like to know I'm not alone
Cheers in advance.
