48. AVG caused my computer to come to a screeching halt
It was fine when it was first installed, but then it just got....boggy. Going to do a re-start? better pack a fucking lunch.

People told me "Oh, you need to add more memory, it's your computer, not the program"---bullshit. Once I got rid of AVG the computer ran fine, memory was fine. But I'd swear the way some people raved about AVG that the program came to life at night and placed gold coins under people's pillows it was SO FUCKING LAUDED.

Screw that. And screw norton, and symantec. We learned our lesson with McAfee years ago after an upgrade download caused our until-then-running-fine computer to just go...schizophrenic. It was never the same, even after every bit of McAfee evil was removed from the damned computer.

I really like MSE. IT's been over 24 hours and my computer hasn't sounded like a gieger counter at Hiroshima ONCE!!! that has, like, never happened before!!!
