I cannot stop the AVG free scan, it has been going for 7 hours now, slowing down my computer and screwing everything up. There does not seem to be any way to stop it, not even Task Manager stops it.
And how are those free security downloads working out for you?
you are running too much stuff in the computer, you need to delete all un-necessary software, and run only one (all in one) security program. Free security downloads are bad news and loading multiple security programs into your computer causes conflicts. I am not surprised that AVG would lock the thing up.
