"it makes PC too slow, useless to install"

My computer became too slow to work after installing windows live onecare antivirus, which was earlier working very fine speed with awast free antivirus software. I waited for so long to download this heavy file from internet, but it turned out to be of no use. During the installation of this OneCare, I had to uninstall my earlier free antivirus awast with which my computer was working perfectly, with good workable speed. But after installation of this windows live onecare my computer became too slow, and again I had to uninstall this onecare application to reinstall the awast one. I dont know why someone will pay for this application, at least i will dump this software in trash? I wasted my 4-5 hrs working on this stupid job. Guys, just dont install this onecare.

  • If you have an old computer or laptop, dont install this antivirus, it will slow your pc too much.
