Out with Avast, in with AVG 9.0

When I fired up my netbook this morning in the Hastings Hardback Cafe, I noticed my free copy of Avast antivirus wouldn’t launch.

I opened its control panel and tried repeatedly to start it, to no avail.

So I did a quick Internet search for free antiviruses and decided to try AVG.

(I’ve been getting the blue screen of death and, worse than that, the black screen of death repeatedly over the past week and wondered if my antivirus might be the problem.)

I uninstalled Avast and installed AVG and hope things will settle down now.
