Avasti & Google Chrome problems

  Ynyshir25 14:43 03 Jun 2014

I am using Windows XP Prof and as Microsoft are not now updating I had to find another virus protection. I downloaded Avasti and was informed that I should download Google Chrome instead of Windows Explorer.

I have had nothing but trouble ever since. It takes forever to get onto the internet and I am wondering if Google is the problem or is it Avasti.

This afternoon after a long battle to try to access Advisor, I downloaded the Browser Maxthon and got to PC Advisor immediately. Hurrah!!

Now, do I delete Google Chrome or do I still need it to use Maxthon?

Any helpful advice would be appreciated.

No you dont need chrome,you would have had the opportunity to untick this before your download.

"What is Avasti.Do you mean Avast"

Some people mistake the exclamation mark in Avast! for an 'i'
