    Avast pro 2014 notebook is causing the slowdown.


    Hi
    Avast AntiVirus Pro version 9 is greatly reduced speed. For example, right click on the desktop, it takes about 5 to 8 seconds, and click on each app takes up a lot of time the program is run.
    Avast settings for tweaking can anyone help me?

    Thanks.

    Sorry, I just stick to the built-in Windows Defender, plus MalWareBytes and CCleaner. No issues on my PC related to these applications...

    Hi there,

    In addition.... Try to uninstall Avast by using it's Uninstall utility then reinstall your program back.

    Do you have any other AV or Security programs installed? If you I'd suggest for you to just keep Avast.

    Also, check the last 2-3 pages of the Avast thread in the sticky threads at the top of this page.

    Yes. kaspersky internet security 2014 installed before and after 2 weeks I had it from the system, Advanced Uninstaller PRO 11 software was removed.

    Try Comodo Internet Security instead. You'll be glad you did.
