avast 9 Slow Boot Time?
« on: November 27, 2013, 05:08:35 PM »
Has anyone noticed the boot time is a bit longer with avast 9 compared to 8?

I'd deliberately stuck to version 8 on my office laptop due to the numerous reported issues regarding version 9.  Since it's a new installation done at the beginning of Oct., I've been keeping everything clean and fast.  This morning, for some reason, avast updated itself to version 9 right in front of my eyes as soon as I turned on my computer.

Now I noticed at least a 10 second increase in loading time after I'm logged in.

Just wondering if anyone else has a similar issue.  I'm on Win7 Pro x64, i7 3540M 3.0G, 8GB RAM.

Hi SlyFox,

Thank you for the warm welcome!

I'm sure your answers have helped many.  Even though sometimes they might not be the exact resolutions, they can always be interesting reads for some.

I've actually never noticed you could delay the loading of avast services.  I'll play with it tomorrow when i get to the office.  Thanks for the link!
