PC slow after AVG downloaded




Issue


Please help, I have had to re-install Windows XP media series - it worked well until I downloaded AVG antivirus and then it became very slow. Obviously I need antivirus -is there one I can use which will not slow my PC so much? I have use McAfee in the past.

Solution


Among the top of the line antivirus application, AVG is the lightest.

The slowdown you are experiencing is due to disk fragmentation after all those installations you performed.

To speed-up your machine, I suggest you do the two following procedures:

1. Stop useless applications from running in the background from boot time. Download and run this simple tool, follow the instructions:
