Avast Webshield slowdown
« on: March 27, 2012, 12:59:41 AM »
It began today, when I was surfing the web, I noticed the webpage slow down to ~10 seconds per site. When I turned it off it returned back to the normal <1 page loading. Any fix?
Avast Free 7.0.1426
Vista 32 bit

What has changed recently on the system as essentially nothing has changed in the way the web shield monitors http traffic ?

What other security software do you have installed ?
What is your firewall ?

Novirusthanks Exe Radar Pro
Windows Firewall

Nothing was changed....... just like a normal day would have had.


EDIT: It looks like it was COMODO DNS servers that were slowing me down afterall.....
Got back to OPENDNS and all is good. Thanks for your help DavidR

You're welcome.

Unusual to see things change like this for no apparent reason. OpenDNS are pretty good for their number of servers and speed of service. I only wish I could use it again, but my BT Infinity router and modem can't be configured to use it.

My business IT network does not allow it either... :'(
