Sorry minacross...
I do not see any reason to be worried with avast! memory useage. There are lots of previous foruns discussing this. I'm with techie 100%  ;) Please, look my links to Freeware or choose this for defragmenting RAM. I really recommend it FreeRam XP Pro 1.4.

*Yawn*  This is a tired old argument.  One, RAM is very elastic.  It changes constantly.  Two, you have plenty of virtual memory allocated in case you run low.  Three, RAM is cheap so look on Ebay.  Four, Avast has better results than Etrust (which used to be free too).  Five, contempt prior to investigation is a sign of complete laziness and trying to promote self-esteem that is lacking.  Five, who gives a hoot!

Now, take away my Karma!

And a wave broke over the railing
And every man knew, as the Captain did, too,
T'was the witch of November come stealing.

Didn't think you had it in ya!  You get a "K" from me for standing ground.

You should use Norton AV 2004 according to the NAV lovers it doesn't slow anything down.  Forget worrying about that 25 megs of ram and go with the AV that never uses any resources.

You have to stay above all this( I hope it is the right english phrase). Your startuplist shows that you do not start much or useless Software, one thing you could try is to temporary disable you firewall to see if it disturbs with Avast. If not, you should use an other Scanner for your on access protection and use Avast only for on demand.
It is not easy to say what happens on your system, but if you can make Avast responsible for your problem, change your on-accessprotection, wait for a new release. Thats it!:)

Hey minacross,

I found it useful, keep it up. I'm not too proud to say that I learn something from all of the

posts here, including the comments in this thread.

It even had a good descriptive subject header, so anyone who didn't want to go over it

again, could have easily chosen not to read it if they didn't want to.

Thanks for the post and thanks Vlk for just nudging my brain into thinking about the

desktop using memory.

Sorry doggeral. I think we do not agree with you. NAV is quite a non wellcome antivirus. I wont post here all my past comments about it (if anybody want to read something, try a search in these foruns: http://www.avast.com/forum/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=1335;start=msg7498#msg7498)

Minacross, try a look at http://www.avast.com/forum/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=1436;start=msg8505#msg8505 and http://www.avast.com/forum/index.php?board=1;action=post;threadid=777

You do not regret posting anything here. We always learn and sometimes teach  ;D

An av that does not use any resources...
Maybe you are kidding with us. No resources, no way, does not work, does not exists, or do nothing...

It will be a very suffering affair to you trying to convince us to use Norton. Is up too you but you´ll be alone at avast! foruns...  ;D
