I've recently changed to using AVAST antivirus, from AVG...
(I was using the free version 6, with no problems, but started to have problems with the free version 7)
I'm not having any problems with AVAST, (though I don't like the interface as much as the AVG one, possibly just becasue of familiarity), but it does seem to be MUCH slower when performing a scan.
Using AVG, (6 or 7), it would scan all y system drives/partitions and take about 15/20 minutes; Using AVAST, just scanning my "C" drive, (2.5 gig used, 1 gig free), takes the best part of an hour!
Can anyone confirm a similar discrepancy in scanning times?
(Obviously the absolute times taken will be very varied, given the number of possible system combinations. I'm looking for comments from folk who have used both products and have made/ noticed a difference.)
