I went to NOD32 because i got 1 year license for free. An offer you cannot refuse.
Considering NOD32 one of the best AVs ever designed.
After that who knows, i know i haven't left avast!. Have no intention to leave it, the same goes for AEC. I've even submitted brand new Mytob worm to Alwil first and then to others few minutes later. But i like NOD32 too so...

I for one that can't leave avast!.

I believe avast! can be better and better but I don't want extra bells and whistles or super-unique features all I want from an antivirus (avast!) is  "faster and lighter scanner with excellent detection rates and fast or fastest response time for every malware not only ITW"

Back to Boot time issues... I just found this reply akallevi made in WISHLIST thread... I personally believe it's wonderful and all he says makes so much sense. Of course, I may be wrong, but I want to draw Alwil's people attention to it. Here it isL

http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=12640.msg151939#msg151939

...
...
...snip
As for the "'ashserv.exe' taking up to 90% of CPU time" issue which is in the above wishlist, I also get that which I see has been an unresolved issue in the forum since March, '05. I do believe it stated around the 4.6 update. When I look for the items being scanned at the time of massive CPU usage by the Standard Shield, one time it was a simple LOG text file which it was scanning over and over again (have since excluded it), but usually the files being scanned are EXE's of which I have never used for a while. And no, I don't have a scheduled scan. Maybe the deal is that Avast is scanning files that XP (which I have) compressed due to lack of use (6 months).  And that the system has to "open" the file and then scan it.  But why is ashserv.exe scanning these files in the first place when I haven't told it to??  Now therein lies the issue........
snip...
...
...

I think he is onto something here... can you Alwil guys comment this ? And also what I am interested in mostly is, how to excluse certain files from Boot-time scanning avast! is performing if it's even possible ? There must be a solution for this problem. I mean I know it may be not that huge issue for most users, but certainly it's annoying... unbelievable annoying. I take my 17" wide screen laptop everywhere with me when doing my Web/Flash/Multimedia in general presentations to my potential clients and customers. When I open it it really takes just few seconds to start the system and enter Windows logging screen. But the problem arrives after the logging in... It scans more than 1 and a half minutes, sometimes even 2 minutes. I mean, I am not trying to be a pain in the rear end, but it's quite annoying because we all know how fastpaced this business World is, especially here in this boiling Toronto. They simply do not have that much time to spend... and when they ask me why is it taking that long to boot, and see our avast! blue ball spinning like crazy, I have to tell them that my antivirus is doing some regular boot-up scan   :-X

I repeat, I tried uninstalling avast! completely and removing all traces I could find... installed NOD32 just for testing purposes. Unbelievable difference. It literally takes 15 - 20 (tops) seconds to start my notebook. Boom, and I'm right in there... ready to open my presentations and go. Problem solved... well, partially... the only problem left is... I simply DO NOT want to use NOD32 or any other AV if my beloved AV can fix its problems... simple as that.

It's not the biggest problem just because avast! icon spins all the time, but because sometimes it's really impossible to even open START panel... it takes few (3-5) seconds to open it... so you can imagine how long it would take to start some 1,5 Mb or even 15 Mb presentation...

That's the only reason I'm bringing this up and truly hope someone from Alwil will be so nice to dedicate some of their precious time to check this and at least give it a good bashing and try to solve this issue once for ever...

Thank you Alwil in advance, you are great, but as we all are, you too are just human beings made of flash and bones. We completely understand your position and I'm not telling you are not trying hard nor giving your best to bear with us... but in this case, I really think I am not speaking about some stupid graphic issue, but I'm talking about something very, very important...I know how annoying bringing of graphic issues could be for some of you as well as for some of forum members, because many think that graphic is not important... but the truth is, you simply can NOT sell the product if it doesn't come in good package. I'm into designing business more than 17 years by now and I really know what I'm talking about.. ok, not professionally, but as a freelance... but still...

So, please take some time to see what's going on and what's being scanned so long...

Thanks in advance!
Regards,
Sasha

Me too. If it's possible to have an inmunize or innoculate option... mark the files and do not scan them in boot time, it will be very good.
Maybe a checksum but it could take longer than scanning.

But certainly it's annoying... unbelievable annoying.
Yeah, boot time delays are really annoying. Maybe we can think in a solution for this.
Startup Delayer is not one of them... Even using very 'delayed' startup, avast takes a lot of time to load and, with it, all other applications that a user could have into startup items.

But the problem arrives after the logging in... It scans more than 1 and a half minutes, sometimes even 2 minutes.
Mine either.

I have to tell them that my antivirus is doing some regular boot-up scan   :-X
Me too... but I always blame against the firewall first  ;D

I simply DO NOT want to use NOD32 or any other AV if my beloved AV can fix its problems... simple as that.

It would be nice.

It wouldn't only be nice, it's something Alwil needs to do if it intends to stay as a viable contender in this business. IMHO


P.S.
Shouldn't the title of this thread be Temptation ???

I've tested today with the report for OK files turned on.
I'm terrified about what avast scans at startup. I have to prepair a full (long) report about it  :(

Yes, my typo.

Alwil, can I get any feedback on this one please ?

http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=17951.msg153010#msg153010

I mean, I tried really hard to explain everything in that reply I made, and I still believe I was pretty much objective... all I need to know is, is there any light at the end of that tunnel ?

Thanks in advance !

I think Sasha deserves an answer here.... I don't think he's asking for much here.Just a little advice and help from you alwil guys.
He is one of the most important forum members here, he has helped many many users here in the forum and he made so many wonderful skins for your program yet he never asked anything in return...Now is it too much to ask for 5 minutes of your time?


P.S: I also think alwil could say a simple THANK YOU to all those wonderful avast forum evangelists that have helped THOUSANDS of users here... I don't think that is too much to ask do you?

Thanks

Mikey

He most certainly does but, he's not asking only for himself.
All the people that are affected by this problem deserve an answer and a resolution. IMHO  :)
