GDATA Antivirus Add to Facebook Share on Twitter

I was looking for an alternative to AVG antivirus, maybe something a little more comprehensive, so I had a look around and according to this site G Data diagnosed the most viruses from a test bunch and hence one would think is the best antivirus to have. They have a 30 day trial so I figured I would give it a try, the program looks nice and seems not to take up too many resources, the fun ends there however…

Once installed the program kept getting stuck when scanning certain files on my disk, usually in fact the same one each time so finishing a scan was impossible even after 5 hours stuck on the same file. Even when I tried to heal infections the program froze for 5 minutes and failed to remove half of them.

The second issue with the program is that it interfered with my web browsing, half of webpage images did not load, some websites refused to load at all sometimes, including Facebook. It also scanned almost every file in a webpage including flash videos, so instead of getting a video straight up and streaming from Youtube I had to wait for the whole video to download and then be scanned most of the time.
