AVG has been munching at my SSDs since it was installed. I'm sure this is taking a huge toll on the life of an SSD. I went searching for a way to stop this and found some info I thought I'd post. Yet another embeded software "feature" that AVG has is a caching function that, what I understand, is similar to Window's readyboost and superfetch. It's used for AVG's optimization tool and can be turned off since most of you optimize your computer manually. You can find the check-box to disable it under AVG's main window. Tools>Advanced Settings. On the left colum open Antivirus>Cache Server and uncheck the box.
