    I just tried to install AVG 2012 on one of my computers and it said I had to uninstall Online Armor (my version does not have av). WTF? o_O

    I think I'll stick to Panda for now.

    AVG 2012:

    Pros
    good detection(not the best among freebies)
    nearly light on resoursces(comparing to the heavy weights)
    good features(it lacks features compared to avast)
    Cons
    some hang-ups seen while runing
    updatin is not that good
    delayed start up
    Summary
    I had been using the program and I was happy(not thoruoghly)
    then,they banned users from my country(Iran) and it could not get updates
    In my opinion,banning people of some country becuause of Governmental policy is not humane(ridiculous idea from an average company)
    I simply uninstalled it and run the Security Essential 4 beta and then I found how light and perfect a simple security program can be

    AVG is a good product and offers very good protection, but IMO, don't buy it at this time, there are some confusions regarding support, so I'd suggest waiting till those are sorted out.
