Avg failed me

By dcmjoker ·
I had AVG 7.5.1 and it was working immaculately or so I thought.
I downloaded the newest version of McAfee and it found a lot of trojans and even a few dormant virus's that AVG didn't acknowledge.

I'm not upset, because AVG was free, but consider how protected you are if you solely trust in only AVG

running multiple anti virus software is paranoid

apart from the anti virus software interfering with each other, they will also slow down the PC and cause false alarms
