Avg versus avast comparison Tags: Internet Applications Apps Last response: February 28, 2011 12:23 AM in Applications Share stitch62 February 14, 2011 11:07:08 PM Hello, I have both AVG and avast, and also Malwarebytes antimalware. My lapttop is about 3 years old and it is not slower than dirt. Is it due to the multiple programs? If I delete either AVG or avast, do I still need an antimalware program as well?

Malwarebytes will not interfere with either. And is invaluable for safemode scans. m 0 l aford10 February 17, 2011 1:26:48 AM My vote is for Avast. It is a bit lighter on resources, and does very well on blocking threats. m 0 l Related resources AVG or Avast? - Forum Avast: No Threats Found but AVG did.

However i've switched to MSE and have no regrets. Better then AVG and Avast imo. m 0 l aford10 February 17, 2011 4:10:08 AM Take a look at the malware guide in my signature. It has links for some of the best AV's. m 0 l stitch62 February 24, 2011 12:50:23 AM Thanks everyone! m 0 l jimmysmitty February 28, 2011 12:23:06 AM AVG has really fallen down in the past few years. They don't keep up to date and pester you to buy their full version. I like Avasts boot time scan but its only for 32bit so if you have or go 64bit its pointless. My fave combo is MSE + Malwarebytes + SAS. Never gotten a virus. Ever. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
