AVG dramatically slows down Mint.
Install Bitdefender, it works great and it's one
of the best Anti-virus scanners there is.
Plus it's in the repositories.
Open Package Manager, search for Bitdefender,
mark for installation and apply.
It works as an on demand scanner so it uses no
resources except when you're running a scan.
I use it and i like it
