|jhelm||Check out Spybot I have been using it for years, the free version. I also use AVG at the moment a paid version. Spy wear may not be the source of your problem but it is worth a look. When I run it, it always finds stuff that is slowing down my computer.|

OK n thanks Pete.
I will keep using AVG on all my PCs till something better comes along.
I was using the free versions on my phone and MS Defender on my PCs. I basically decide to change to F-Secure across my devices after reading a Which report. One of the advantages of F-Secure is it comes with F-Secure Key, a password manager and I can keep all my devices in synch.

I pay £49.99 for 2 years and 3 PCs but this takes a phone call and a haggle every time!
Could always go free but don't begrudge the reasonable cost I pay.
As an aside in case you did not know MS are discontinuing suppurt for W7 in Jan 2020. I wasn't too happy with AVG and have recently switched nearly all my devices over to F-Secure.
|peribro||Just to rule in or out the possibility that it is a licence issue, were the two PC's bought at the same time?|
|barryd||Not necessarily Dave. If they are just PUPs (Potentially unwanted programs) they are not necessarily viruses so AVG wont necessarily pick them up. Ive seen well over 1000 picked up by malwarebytes on computers that have AVG or Avast etc on them by Malwarebytes. They PC is usually in a bad state by then if it has that many. Seven is nothing unless one or more of them is something serious.|
|Penquin||Yes Peter, we have tried IE (yuk) and Firefox, all seem to be playing up hence why I feel it is deeper than just the browser and may be in the OS I am currently removing malware as a first step, it has found 9 issues which does not reflect well on AVG as a protector....|
