I have been using avast! for a couple months now and what I've noticed is my computer running slower every since. What I'm seeing is each time I click to open something, avast! goes to work doing it's job, but at the same time, my page/site is delayed opening because of avast! Once it's done checking for viruses (I'm assuming), then the page/site opens. This is has been very annoying. Sometimes I just need to sign on to computer, open site, get info and sign off, but it's so time consiuming to do this. Is there something I can do....configure to speed it up, or should I try another AV SFW?
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!
