Avast+The Pirate Bay Slow
« on: July 05, 2010, 07:33:44 PM »
Ever since I have installed Avast, The Pirate Bay is slow whenever I visit that site.
Does Avast do something to that site?

You do know that 99.9% of things on torrents are illegal, and a good part of those contain viruses, right ?  ;D

yes I realize that, however; Avast, MalwareBytes, Kaspersky, and others would not be making any money or having any customers if it weren't for viruses.  ;)

I hadn't thought of that. I'll start reverse-engineering some exploits writing right away!  ::)

Wow, it always amazes me that anyone who uses any AV program (no matter the brand) complains when they can not go to known bad sites such as TPB. Why do they even bother using an AV program anyway?   ???

well idk about him, but he seemed to complain that it just slowed down the site, not that it interfered with whatever he was downloading perhaps, so its not really interfering with him doin what he wants, just slowing it down. im sure if u disable the webguard u wont feel any slowdown.

I wouldn't disable Web Shield (specially in that kind of sites) regardless the performance.

+1, but you can't protect people against their own will. They want a thing and its contrary at the same time. And it's the same guys showing up here if they get infected, accusing eventually Avast of missing a threat ::)

ther is nothing malicious about The Pirate Bay itself, some of its downloads can occasionally have viruses, but the site is completely clean so it makes no difference.
