dont like AVG internet security suite 8.0

  Kingfisher 19:47 30 May 2008

just recently upgraded to latest AVG internet security suite 8.0, but seems resource hungry pc seems slower. Had a bad expeience with Norton so wnt touch that with a barge pole. Can anyone recommend a good security suite (not just antivirus) one that has a better interface than AVG 8.0 and not resource hungry, have googled but cant decide.
my spec is intel Pentuim 4.0 3.00ghz 1 gig ram windows xp sp3, any recommendations would be appreciated

I had a similar problem and reverted to 7.5 because it was mentioned that they are actually going to continue updates until the end of the year.

I am hoping that in the meantime the bugs will be ironed out.

Try the free version of Avast, it's just as good as AVG.

Try Bullguard.

I have had it for about a year and it doesn't appear to hog resources at all.

thankyou for all your responses, will have a look at Bullguard, or consider reverting to 7.5

PC Tools offers a free basic AV package and I use the free ZoneAlarm for the firewall. Both companies have been around for many years and get good reviews from the top review websites.
