the same peak rating here even i disable avast  ??? ???
i cannot find any difference :'(
maybe because my system is stable or simply too old that why it is not sensitive ;D ;D ;D 8) 8) 8)

 I would say you have something other than Avast 5 causing high latency. Some PC's have high latency right from the factory though no PC should have high latency under normal conditions. If you can, follow the instructions given on latency checker website to root out the cause.

i know how to disable and reenable devices or drivers i just don't see why i should spend hours testing my machine when the problem is obviously coming from avast and i must say i am not impressed with their level of support: basically none
only guys like you are trying to help and thanks so much for that but it would be nice if they appeared on the forum too considering that this is not an isolated problem, loads of people are claiming similar problems
i am also annoyed because i never wanted the update in the first place, my license was expiring i clicked on the link to renew it and instead had my avast updated, my license is still not renewed and i don't have the option anymore

all in all rather pathetic experience of avast in the last week considering i had never had a problem with it in years, go figure
once again thanks for your help man
and for avast staff (if they ever come on here) thanks for nothing!!

Do you also have high CPU usage?
No, CPU usage seems OK to me.
Have you tried disabling all non essential drivers and software excluding Avast and MS services in msconfig.
Yes, of course (I tried this before starting this topic). I'm sure that it's is avast that causes the problem.

Searching on Google I found your topic, is exactly what I'm experiencing.
version 418 and 462 are completely unusable after many hours of use.
so,let's see how important is to ALWIL see your antivirus smoothly.
now it's official, avast is causing serious problems in the DPC latency.
see my recent topic.

Hi All

On evidence so far I doubt this a global problem but maybe Zyndstoff could be a little less derisive (and consequently less amusing).

I have AIS 5.0.462 on 4 PCs and AFAV 5.0.462 on 3. (6 x XP SP3 & 1 x Vista HB SP2)

The machine I'm on now is:
Athlon XP 2600+
1GB RAM
XP Pro SP3
