AVG,Avast,Enviro, free anti virus programs and My Pc is 256memory, which one should I choose? Answered

I currently have Mcafee, and it makes my PC run like a snail and is always having fix its and problems and always saying not protected and then I click it and have to wait ages again to it to protect again and I cant use my pc in that time.

It takes ages to load up and shut down. I have been getting Advice from another site of this to.

I currently pay a subscription to Mcafee monthly for these updates but it seems to be hogging my PC up.

I looked and noticed that AVG is a bigger program then MCafee.

My husband has AVG and yet his PC is same as mine, 256 memory as well, but his runs faster.

Now I have given you the details of my problem above. My question below.

If I change from Mcafee to AVG, will my PC run even slower then now?

Or maybe I should try Avast instead then which I think is smaller.

Anyone one out there who can advise me which to go for?

You may also want to try an online antivirus scan which is very convenient and without any trouble.

For a Windows based OS, use Microsoft Securtity Essentials. Its free,and it works well on older PCs.
You can find it at  microsoft.com.

I use "comodo internet security". Works great for me and it's free also. Don't like AVG or Avast. Have has problems running them both in the past. Might just be me.
