I’ve been using AVG8 free on Vista for a while now. While it seems to run fine on Vista, it seems that it consumes much more resources whenever I install it on XP. Has anyone noticed this? Maybe AVG8 is able to take advantage of the dual core processor on the Vista machine. One side effect of AVG, although less so on Vista, is that when a folder with many exe files is opened it takes forever for the icons to show up. I like this AV but I hesitate to recommend it for anyone running XP. If anyone is using AVG8 instead of one of the other free AVs I would like to hear your reason why.
