Terminal Servers slow after install of Avast 6 BP?
« on: October 05, 2011, 05:30:43 AM »
I deployed Avast6 BP to all the computers in my domain and didn't think it would install the client on the servers, since I hadn't created a server install like i had to do in 4.8.  Anyway, users are complaining that the Windows 2003 Terminal Servers are running very slow now.  Has anyone experienced any issues like this?  I didn't find any documentation about TS.

i havent installed it yet on my terminal server (waiting for the SBC installer update that is coming soon) but my intention is to install it on there

the only reason i can think of quickly is that every user that logs in starts an instance of avast scanner which potentially could slow down the disks of the OS resulting in performance decay.

did you check the running processes on the server?

AvastNET.exe and AvastSvc.exe are only running once, and AvastUI.exe is running for every user.  I think the UI is just the taskbar icon.
