Avast is slowing Skype?
« on: February 24, 2017, 12:35:28 AM »
Hello, I just found out that Avast is slowing down my Skype to the point that it just freezes. I now that Avast is causing this because when I deactivate Avast shields the problem disappears.
Anyone having the same problem or knows how to solve it?  :-\
I would appreciate some help :D

I'm having the same issue as well, installed Avast today and noticed Skype is slow and freezes sometimes when I get new messages.

Could you disable each shield individually and then report which shield is causing the issue?

That means Avast is no longer protecting you. Your computer, your choice.

Seeing the same problem - it's TERRIBLE.
It's the File System Shield that's the culprit.
We need this fixed quick!

FYI - I went into Customize for that shield and put Skype in the exceptions, and that works for now - but I don't like doing that.
