Just me again with more questions! :)
Windows Defender on my computer scans daily and boy, does it slow down my computer while it's scanning! I can barely use my PC when it's scanning! Do you'all think Windows Defender is necessary and do you recommend it? A friend told me she got rid of Windows Defender & her antivirus program and installed Microsoft Security Essentials. What do you'all think about that?
Speaking of antivirus, I changed from AVG to avast about 4 years ago and I like it better. I have been happy with it until the last upgrade of the free version, which I use. Seems right after that last upgrade of it (not just an update but an upgrade) my computer began starting up much much slower! Not 100% sure if that's it, but something ALL OF A SUDDEN about that same time sure caused it to start up SLOWWW. That upgrade wanted me to install Google Chrome but I refused and it kept trying to get me to but I never did. Should I???? Could that be the problem? Not sure how it could be, but just wondering?
Sometimes I don't know what to do about all this stuff. You hear everything!
