very well, and is a choice of yours, i use AVG and have used Avast!, really, it was a choice to go back to AVG having used it for years, and was used to it, but was more then satisfied with Avast! both are highly recommended so which ever you choose will be a great choice.
I am about to get a new computer with windows xp home, 1gb ram, pentium 4 640 processor, and 250gb memory.
I was wondering which av program is better for detection, deletion, speed, doesn't hog memory resources, updates, and anything else vital for an antivirus program. Which in your opinion is better and why?
