slow reboot times,,Help!
« on: July 17, 2013, 10:26:05 PM »
Hi All,

My Internet is nice and fast,,no problems there,,

but my "Reboot " times are very-slow, and I suspect its avast,
after reboot, on the taskbar,the Little-red-avastball stops twirling alot after reboot, so Im suspecting its scanning all my tsr's??
I went to settings and set avast to load last, but that didnt stop the ball from stopping-alot after startup
[I suspect its scanning when the ball stops rolling??]
Is there any way to tell that Little-ball to take a break, and let my tsr's load??

,,,,
and yes, I have the "Full payed-for Registered" version of Internet security!

any tips, helps, would be appreciated!!
Thnx!!
John.

Have you tried excluding those tsr,s within avast at all.
Another option could be to use something like autoruns and stop avast from running at start up but of course this leaves your start up unprotected so its maybe a last resort.

Thanks.

It is the other way around. When Avast! icon spins, it is checking files.

You could try loading Avast! services last.

Open Avast! > Settings > Troubleshooting > Load Avast! services only after loading other system services.

What OS, Spk, bit ?
Your PC set up; CPU speed, RAM, ... ?
Which Avast! version ?
How did you uninstall last AV ?
What other security programs are you running now ?

To exclude files and programs in the File System Shield. See image below
You can also do the same for Behavior Shield to include files and programs as trusted processes.

However, this may leave your system at risk since Avast! will not analize those files or programs. So you may try it but if nothing changes remember to delete those exclusions.
