    I haven't used AVG...I am happy with Avira since I switched over from Trend Micro :)eek:).

    As long as Avira works fine for me, I will continue using it! :D :cool:

    Avira, I lost faith with AVG after the whole 8.0 10,000 false positives debacle. :)

    Avira definitely.

    Disable that nag screen.

    AVG became a system hog when it became that all-in-one-ish security system. Avira is light yet reliable.

    Used AVG for a long time. Disliked the new AVG 8 and switched to Avast and then to Avira. I find Avira to be the best all rounder.

    Avira FTW!

    i used AVG before and it couldnt get rid of this one virus that avira did. and that was enough for me. + avira is lighter and works better paired with threatfire :D

    I've used both. I like the feel of AVG better; I can't comment on the performance differences, as I've never had Avira actually find any viruses. :rolleyes:

    I switched to Avira from AVG - AVG was getting too bloated and demanding. I like it better overall, and now that I can turn off that stupid nagging I like it even more.
