AVG fake traffic spares Google AdWords


Not only annoying but soooooooo slow.....

I have used AVG anti virus for many years, until this latest release. After installing it my PC slowed to a crawl and surfing the web was a painful experience because of this new "wonder" feature (amongst others). I immediately disabled most of its functionality, then wondered why I should keep it installed in the first place. So AVG has gone to the giant bloat-ware repository in the sky - (Much like an experience with a Norton update a couple of years ago). I'm trialling Avast and think it does a good job without the bloat and system hit. So maybe the current "fake traffic" problem will only be a temporary glitch, before most people switch to a leaner more efficient solution...?
