It's probably not the brightest thing to do, but I've got both installed, so I need to get rid of one.

I haven't a clue about which one I should keep.

What say the techies?

I've disabled Avast atm so I can access LI :hmm:

AVG is fine if you have a complete version and you keep it updated, and it's also light.
But I prefer AVAST, it seems to be more able to catch viruses that can pass behind AVG, but AVAST is a little bit heavier.

just my opinion.

I recommend Microsoft Security Essentials (free).

To be honest, both suck. While they are pretty decent considering they are free, in most cases there are lots of false alarms. I've been using Eset smart security for a while (somebody i know has the business versions, gave me a free copy) and it's pretty awesome but i've reinstalled windows more times than i can count, so i just didn't bother installing.. running w/o anti-virus for months now.. if i get a virus i'll just reformat and reinstall. But back on topic i would say AVG is better, Avast sucks and i've tried both and found it to be one of the worst i've used by far, and the Microsoft one is also pretty decent.
