Ok, so I've been using AVG free for a while and I guess it does it's job, but for whatever reason I get horrible internet speeds (it jumps up and down from DSL 384 k/sec upload, to crappy dial-up), and "red" pings in online games like World of Warcraft. I noticed when I disable the auto protect feature that my internet speed and game latency both jump to lightning fast speeds..
Now, I realize that it's not a solution to the problem as I NEED an AV software. What's a good one out there that doesn't jack with resources/internet speed for a relatively low ($40 tops) price?

you know, I'm actually now realizing it probably isn't my AV. I think I'm just doomed with crappy DSL in an old house. I still lag out of games and surfing halts to a stop on occassion. I suppose I'll figure this out thru my ISP.
