I have just installed Windows7 and put the latest version of AVG8.5 (free) on there, which claims to be compatible. However, it seems to slow the machine right down. I have not installed the Link Scanner.
For example, tap the Windows key and start typing the name of a program you want to launch. avgsrx.exe spikes for a while and Windows takes ages to return a list of programs. Actually start a program and the same story.
Uninstall AVG and everything is flying.
Has anybody else seen this? Any suggested remedies?
Update: I have upgraded a couple of other laptops to Windows 7 and they don't seem to suffer from this problem - at least not as much. I'll put it down to something specific to that particular laptop.
