slow on AVAST pro 4.8
« on: July 20, 2009, 09:47:26 PM »
ok so i got the pro 4.8 the other day. And I have noticed today that web pages are loading very slow. I have not modified anys ettings on AVAST yet as i do not know how. But i am wondering if i need to so i can connect to a page.

We will need more information to be able to help you:
- Which OS are you using? Is it up to date?
- What avast! version and VPS file (virus database) number?
- Do you use a firewall? Which one?
- Which is your browser?
- Do you have any other antivirus installed in your system?  Did you have in the past?
- Any other security programs that could interfere?
- Isn't it a trouble with your Internet Service Provider?

Ok. Seems to be a problem with Firefox 3.5. Maybe updating to 3.5.1.
Also, AVG Remover can be downloaded here: http://www.avg.com/download-tools

Also if you want u can use Malwarebytes 1.39 Free like me and some of us. Its a powerfull anti malware with your Avast!,Windows Defender and Firewall its can be great.
