Avast lags my games
« on: September 17, 2007, 10:41:11 PM »
Firstly let me say I have been using Avast for 2 years & am of the opinion it is the best AV out there by a mile.

However, recently I installed Vista 64-Bit and noticed that though the OS upgrade from XP included a hardware upgrade to a Q6600,GTX,2Gb RAM, Raptors, etc, I noticed a slight slowdown in my 3D games to the point of being annoying. After trying a number of things inc various video drivers, a format, etc, I found a fix which was to disable Avast.

The problem with this approach is that I dont have AV protection while gaming & if I forget to disable the AV I have to exit the game to do so which is also annoying. So for the time being Im using a different AV (Bitdefender) which doesnt lag my games if I happen to leave it on.

So I was wondering if its possible to have this issue corrected?

It's difficult to call this an 'issue' as it's not easy to troubleshoot and help you.
Which is your Standard Shield sensitivity? High or Normal?
If you disable only WebShield provider, will it help?

By the way, are you using the BitDefender free? It does not have a resident protection...
