Avast 5 Application Startup
« on: January 22, 2010, 07:09:03 PM »
I have upgraded from Avast 4.8 to avast 5 on windows 7 x64 and am experiencing slower startup of applications. If i disable the file system shield applications start up very fast (as they normally do).

This is becoming really frustrating for applications like Chrome and Internet Explorer 8 since each tab is essentially a different process and where as before a new chrome tab would take less than a second to open now it takes around 5seconds.


Any ideas what could be wrong?

I unintalled rebooted and installed the same version again and now everything is normal and as fast as it used to be.

Avast is a great AV
