    :confused:I have downloaded AVG Free and updated it to version 8 twice. Both times it slowed down everything and messed up my email. It shows a paper clip symbol for attachments when there are no attachments and receives some of the emails two times. When I log on to the internet it tells me how many new messages I have and it takes a long time to scan and download them. Sometimes it takes up to four minutes just to check for new email. I am on dial up so the internet is slow enough already. Thanks.

    I would switch to another anti-virus such as Avast or Antivir
