highly peculiar...

Umm...i don't like AVG at all. Its got the worst interface ever, and the support is horrible. I probably recommended Avast, since it's the best, nuff said.

But for a low-end computer, NOD32 is the best. Costs money though

well if I remember it was AVG that conflicted with it, I find it far too frustrating that I can install a plethora of spyware programs but only 1 or 2 anti virus applications.
