avast real time protection slow down google chrome
« on: September 19, 2012, 01:02:01 PM »
I have noticed that avast slow down google chrome on one of my computers. If I disable avast file shield and web schield google chrome seems to be faster. The strange thing is that on the other two systems of mine google chrome works goodwith avast.  Can anyone tell me if avast could be the cause of this slowness? If yes, what can I do to prevent avast to slow down my browser? Please help me

avast! free does not block chrome. avast! doesn't have a firewall. avast! free scans your internet activity.
The only thing it blocks are infections and infected websites.
I'm using Chrome and avast! free.


What firewall are you using ???

Which version of Chrome ???
Have you tried disabling all of your extensions to narrow down the problem ???
If it works without the extensions, then you'll need to isolate the culprit that's causing the problem.
When was the last time that you cleared the browser data ???

I have the last version of chrome, number 21.0.1180.89 and the only extention I use is the webrep plugin of avast. If I disable it the situation remains the same. I always clean the cache of chrome with cleaner, I do it each day
