    kaspersky uses 100% of disk when i launch a game


    hi, so i uninstalled my mcafee A/V a while ago and instead i installed kaspersky antivirus. i use my laptop for gaming and never had a problem with that until i used kaspersky.
    it now takes 2-3 minutes to start a game, during this time the laptop slows down a lot, and when i check my task manager it says that kaspersky is taking almost 100% of disk space. when the game finally starts everything goes back to normal.
    is there a way to fix this without uninstalling kaspersky? i payed good money for it.

    thanks.

    Are you talking about all games or one game in particular. If only one game, temporarily disable Kaspersky to run and see if any improvement.

    Personally, I would uninstall Kaspersky using their removal tool, it is a resource hog anyway. Chalk it up to a learning experience. Try some of the free AV programs, such as Avast or AVG, to find which works best for you.
