@nighttree: when you switch to a different page, what exactly is slow? Just GUI? Try run Task Manager (taskmgr.exe), go to "Processes" tab, do you see high CPU usage? Thanks.

Nothing like that listed under "processes" ......
Under "performance" there is a CPU usage gage that is rapidly bouncing from low numbers (0 to 4) to numbers as high as 100.

What that means is beyond me however  :-[

What "appears" to be happening, is that Avast takes several minutes to scan every page change I make, and it's getting slower every day. As of this morning it took over ten minutes just to go from one e-mail page to another after clicking delete.

Edit: After looking at the processes page again, there is a column called CPU.....most of the listed items are at 00.
System idle process is jumping from numbers in the fifties to 99 rapidly and consistantly.
WUSB54GC.exe jumps from single digit numbers to high sixties.
All other systems show little or no change.

So now the BIG question.....what does that mean ???

hi nighttree

I think you will find that the problem is yr linksys connection manager
- you are using linksys utility to configure wireless rather than Windows which performs config better

quick test - go to Services and see if you can change the entry to manual rather than automatic - then Restart
Services - Start->right-click (My)Computer-> select Manage -> click thru Services and Applications to Services window

There are other ways to switch wireless config from linksys utility to Windows - search WUSB54GC.exe on Google

Which version are you registering? 4.8 or 5? Free or Pro?

what is yr operating system how much ram?
what other antivirus / antispyware are you running or were previously?

have you made any changes lately?

you can check logs if you want for errors (this is just speculation just in case)
- Start->rightclick (My)Computer->Manage-> Event Viewer - check in System and Applications
- only look for something out of order that may be causing a conflict
or
- Start->rightclick (My)Computer->Manage-> click through Services and Applications until get to Services
- check entries under avast - make sure they are started
   In mine Services (XP)
- avast antivirus is started and automatic
- avast Mailscanner is started and manual
- avast Web scanner is started and manual

Another option is to do a Repair - Windows Add/Remiove programs
- click uninstall/change to bring up avast module - scroll down to Repair and run

Also and perhaps first if recently updated, Restart a couple of times and see if icon comes back

It does work, it just doesn't show any results if the download is clean, if it is infected then you will see it alert.

Go to this site, http://www.eicar.org/anti_virus_test_file.htm and download one of the eicar.com files (using HTTPS, otherwise the web shield would alert if using HTTP). Now you will actually get two alerts as the file when saved to the hard disk (being a .com file) will be scanned by the File System Shield
