Yes, delete Avira


Go to their website to see if you need their un-install tool. If you don't you'll have bit and pieces left all over in the dusty corners of your system. wink
Yeah I've got O.C.D. Old, cranky, and dangerous.

Everything will kill you, so choose something fun!

I use AVG and have not issues.
Go into the settings and turn off as many of the popups as you can. You can't turn them all off on the free version.

AVG has been good for me.

I was always taught to honor my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
