Still having probs with todays AVG DB

  six-h 15:47 13 Nov 2009

My laptop started a scan at 15:00, got as far as 94715 objects scanned and seems to be stuck on a Reg. item: -
the remainder goes off the screen. lol

I can't pause or stop the scan, is it wise to "End Process"?

just wondering if you are using zone alarm as i think it may have caused the odd problem like this before.

Couldn't wait for advice, exterminated it with Task Mgr.

Don't think my poor lappy could cope with 100% cpu for much more than an hour solid!

Re-started the full scan and even using fast scan cpu use occasionally drops to 98%.

I certainly won't leave it unattended again!
It's kinda loosened my trust in AVG 8.5 and I certainly won't be upgrading to 9.0 any time soon!

That poses a problem since support for 8.5 finishes Dec 1st, and I go on holiday Dec 7th.

Any thoughts on a replacement that I could get used to before then?
