AVG doesn't seem to clean up after itself so over a period of time its virtual memory use gets pretty high. A corollary is that about that time it presents a big popup announcing that a reboot is necessary (presumably due to an update), and won't take 'no' for an answer (although it allows delays up to 24 hours). I hate rebooting b/c I invariably have several things on-going.
Personally, I really like ESET.
It is fast and Flexible.
When I renew, the new expiration date applies to all connected computers.
It has one Issue. If you want to use it over a VPN, it wants to scan each file you touch over the VPN, no way to indicate to not do this, but to keep scanning network drives. Network drives are fast, VPN is typically really slow.
John, you are a trusting soul.
The better solution, tell it not to scan your source code files!
Most viruses are binary, there is no real reason to be scanning TXT,C,H, etc files.
PDF Files. YEAH.
I would spend the 10-15 minutes you need to tune your compile time performance.
I am INCREDIBLY safe with my surfing. Switched to web based mail to avoid downloading
stuff to my machine, etc.
I don't let my scanner scan my oracle ORA files or the Oracle Data Folder DBF Files.
By eliminating those files that are accessed all the time, but not binary, I think you
can get an optimal solution that is a FAST Computing Experience that has decent safety.
On Android, if you use the default messaging application you can't search through your text messages... you would think somebody at Google would have though, "maybe we should make all these messages searchable", novel concept.
Yeah, same. While I'm in messages (with no conversations open), I just open the menu and select search.
Search isn't an option if I've got one open, i.e you search all conversations with everyone anytime you search for anything.
