Avast or AVG

I read today a critique and Avast 4 was the loser. You, my peers, I trust, Which, overall is best?

Avast free is supported by alwil, AVG free isn't supported by Grisoft.
Avast has superior mail scan, AVG 7 is better than 6, but has been causing problems, see forum postings for details.
Avast has the best update system there is.

I've used both and have never encounted any problems with either, but feel that avast! is the better package at the moment. Though you will get posts from people who prefer AVG.

Can you post a link to the critique ? I doubt it'll change my opinion but could be worth a read.

I use Avast, I find it easy to use, the update is superb and it has caught 2 email viruses in the last 2 weeks. The Avast forum is a bonus click here

avast has the beating of avg in terms of virus detection, but that was mainl over avg version 6.

Buchan tell us how you get on. Latest reports are that avg has been neglecting their Freeware and placing their efforts on their shareware. It is shame, I suppose they want to push the freeware users to their shareware programs.
