Not too long ago I upgraded my computer and laptop to the new AVG 8 and now my browser seems to have slowed down. I use FireFox 3 so it should be super speedy. It feels like AVG 8 is just overloaded with stuff. It likes to put a checkmark beside every link as their approval that the site is not evil. I think it has something to do with the 'Safe Surf-Shield" or 'Link Scanner' features. Can anyone suggest an alternative to AVG that's also free but not loaded with all this other stuff.
