Be sure to fully update this before you scan in either safe more or drop the internet connection while you are logged into windows & do a full scan.

Personally I would change to free Avast or free Avira if you want a better free AV - AVG doesn't cover rootkits or downloads or IM chats click here That's why they call it Basic Protection.

Malwarebytes (as recommended above) is excellent - so is Spybot. I install them both - each picks up a few things the other misses.

Defragging is vastly overrated - I only ever use the Windows one - and rarely. Most other free defraggers only use the Windows API calls anyway. See this from one such website :-

"JkDefrag is based on the standard defragmentation API by Microsoft, a system library that is included in Windows 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, and 2008. Most defragmenters are based on this API, including the free defragmenter that comes with Windows and many commercial defragmenters."

For Registry Cleaning and (more importantly) Disk Cleaning I use the free Wise Cleaners click here I find them fast, safe, and the Registry Cleaner makes good backups of what it does.

If you want a top grade all-in-one AV, Firewall, Spyware and Spam protection - then you best fork out a few quid for Eset Security Suite - well known for it's lack of system overhead, fast scans, trounlefree fast and frequent updates, and it's unbeaten Virus performance over many years in the Virus Bulletin tests www,
