    I wouldn't advise going without an antivirus. I have heard that the new AVG 7 takes considerable resources. You might want to uninstall it (good luck) and download and install the free Avast av. You can get it from here:

    Or antivir is also a good free AV that dosn't use too many resources. It can be downloaded from here:

    JAYT; THANKS FOR SUGGESTION...was looking at avg this morning and i am not sure if the thing is "looking realtime" ........the old one caught three viruses while i was online, so i know it was "looking"......got the avast and have found it confusing! will keep poking at it till i find what i want....i don't want auto-updates and noises ....
    i may have to get a larger/faster computer to just run the apps to protect it ......
    thanks again!....robert
