I've been using AVG for years as well and when I saw that news, I promptly uninstalled the hell out of it.

I went for an open-source AV, in this case ClamWin and so far I like what I see.
It isn't hard on the PC's resources and the virus database is updated automatically almost daily.

The simple fact that it is open-source makes me feel safe. I even downloaded the source-code to have a look at it before installing.
At least I know that it will not try to sell my personal information to a gazillion third-parties.

Hope that helps!
