AVG antivirus toolbar

Does anyone know how useful the AVG toolbar is? I'm tempted to remove it, because it slows things down... Am I not protected enough with simply having AVG active at start up?

I don't use anti virus software at home. Just make yourself a standard user on Windows. This type of user cannot install software.

You don't need it. Use firefox or google chrome for browsing. Don't use IE unless you have to.

I do use Firefox... but somehow I think AVG isn't THAT bad and pointless. But the true question for me is whether the toolbar is needed, and why (don't the basic AVG functions already protect me?).

Not one iota. I use Avast Antivirus and Malwarebytes (both are free)
