    Slowed my machine to a crawl, ended up putting avast on instead. I had been running 7.5 with no probs before the upgrade.

    s

    Just turn off the scheduled scanning ... or on custom setup choose not to have a daily scan.

    Runs fine for me.

    Darts right, AVG always wants to do a scan at start up and this can slow a pc to a crawl

    No I had AVG 7.5 and a lot of versions before that and all were fine, set to do a full system scan at 6pm while I am eating daily.
    V8 was set the same its just that it was so intrusive at other times that made me dump it in favour of Avast.
