Help on AVG PLEASE

Specs: XP, 1gb-pentium 4

Ok. I'm looking for the best antivirus. I really like AVG free 7.5 edition. I read some really good reviews over it. I read this horrible review over how it doesn't scan all files like 20 percent only, is that true. What is the best free antivirus out there? Would AVG be good enough. I thinking on getting AVG and windows defender with winodws firewall would that be enough?
Thanks in advance

I prefer Avast Free:
http://www.avast.com/eng/download-a...
No muss, no fuss, no scheduled scans
That along with Comodo Pro Firewall:
http://www.personalfirewall.comodo....
and then use Spyware Terminator:

Great realtime spyware program

Been using it for 3 years and have never gotten a virus . Use spybot and adaware along with it and you shouldn't have a problem.

Thanks guys. I don't like avsast thought. It doesn't have realtime protection and I prefer scheduled scans.

Anyway I think I'll stick with AVG. I had adaware, but i got rid of it when I got windows defender, was that a mistake?

>>I don't like avsast thought. It doesn't have realtime protection<<

Hmmm...that's a new one to me. Avast has real-time protection that will alert you about a virus in real-time and allow you to abort your connection. AVG has no such thing. That is why you don't have to schedule scans with Avast.

Oh. woops I thouht Avast didn't. AVG does, it' called Resident Sheild. Once when removing a virus I installed AVG and resident shield immediately and said it found a virus.

I'm sure webshield which is on Avast picks up viruses on the fly...BUT I don't think the free AVG has that feature.

Derek, AVG only has Real-time protection as files are opened and programs are run, that doesn't stand true for opening webpages as you are surfing the net....
