Or download http://www2.asw.cz/~vlk/er.exe (my own tool :)) and (with Task Manager NOT started) run

er taskmgr.exe

This will also start the Task Manager with elevated rights (if you're logged on as an admin)

I was able to change the priority to High, but it was still uneven.

Worth a try.

Thanks,
Harvey

OK folks, here's another version: http://www2.asw.cz/misc/ashmaisv3.zip .

This time, the behavior should change if you add the following line to the [MailScanner] section of the avast4.ini file:

SendInBlockingMode=1


This should result in maximum throughput with no spikes... (hopefully)

Thanks :)

Vlk,

Much better! This is comparable to what I was seeing in NAV 2004. In fact, the average speed may even be slightly higher.

Could you explain what this latest fix does?  I hope they give you stock options!!!

Thanks,
Harvey

Well, what this patch does is replace a piece of lousy code with a good one ;D. No, really, I have to admit that the actual sending code was a bit strange, to put it diplomatically. It was written in +-1998 and it's likely that our coding standard was a bit lower at these days ;). Oddly enough, the code WAS working after all, but sort of suboptimally.

Probably explains why those of us using Stunnel for the actual transmission didn't have a problem.
Windows 7 x64HP-SP1-No UAC, Opera 11.51, Avast! Internet Security 6.0.128, Webroot SecureAnywhere latest beta, Windows FW off, MVPS HOSTS, SAS/MBAM offline, Macrium Reflect just in case ;)
