I have just removed McAfee from my laptop and installed Avast free version of anti-virus software. Can anybody suggest how to set it up to get the best performance from my laptop and remain well protected?
I've set it so it doesn't scan outgoing email as it prevented me from actually sending email. Also turned off the site/safe surfing thing, it's a nuisance. Also make sure it hasn't installed chrome on your machine, unless you want it of course. Reduce the various notification times in settings. Cancel the program updates (not for avast itself but for other prgrams on your machine) as again this becomes a nuisance. Turn off voice notifications.
