Hi ,Grandaughter has new computer and I am just about to remove Norton and install AVG.Now the thing I like about AVG is the little square that you tick and it will power down computer when scan is finished.Is it safe to do it on a laptop it works fine on my Desktop.Has anyone tried it with there Laptop ,and does it work Ok.

yeah that is safe i always do a scan before going to bed every 15 days,and thus having this option checked will shoutdown my laptop safely,so i can enjoy my sleep,make sure you have checked to save a report of the scan so when u wake up u can see what virus was there on your laptop.happy new year

'i always do a scan before going to bed every 15 days'.

That's what I call not needing much sleep.
