Default Re: avast killed my defrag program

The best anti-virus is a vigilant user...

I haven't used an anti-virus program in years.... somewhere around 4-5 years. I have had no issues with viruses either.

You might ask how I know I don't have them, if I dont' have a scanner? ... I keep pretty close track of system processes and can spot a rogue one using un-warranted cpu and memory.

I'd suggest un-installing avast, reinstaling your defrag program, and just be a cautious (intelligent) surfer.

... last step is optional... you can re-install a virus scanner after but the real way to fix it would be completely get rid of avast then completely reinstall your defrag program. Good luck!
