Title: Why so slow now?
Post by: cicada on January 01, 2005, 12:13:27 AM
avast seems to be running extremely slow now for me. I know it has more files to go through now, but it takes over 20 minutes to scan 45,000. It was not this slow when I first installed it. Is this normal or do I need to change something?
Thanks for any info given

Settings, Settings, Settings, (Standard Shield and On-Demand scan, quick, standard, thorough, archive, etc) what are they?

We don't know what yours are so we can't guess at a resolution.

Mine takes over half an hour, but it's set to 'thorough' and it does a thorough job!! I just make a cuppa, play with the dog for a while and have learned to be patient. It is worth the wait! Great product and what a helpful, happy support forum this is!

Happy New Year and Happy days to you

Better slow and safe than fast and infected....

Speed has to do with a lot of things like:
- settings
- system specs
- amount of files
- file sizes
- archives
- etc etc etc
