Please help
« on: December 30, 2004, 11:34:08 AM »
My processor is only 633Mh so i want to reduce some of the providers that i really don't need but i'm not sure which exactly so i want to ask.
I never use E-mail like Outlook and Outlook express.I use only Internet mail (www.abv.bg).It's just like yahoo.com.So can i turn off this provider.(In details there is a message that the provider i waiting for a sybsystem to start.In this state is there any difference if i shut it down.(I don't want this provider to consume any ram if i don't need it.
I don't know exactly what the "internet mail"provider is doing but if i can i want to shut it down too.(only if i really don't need it)
And about the P2P shield, when i click on details..I don't use any of the programs there.Or i really don't know if i'm using them.
Thank you.

In that case you can remove (control panel > add/remove > Avast > change/repair) the internet mail provider and the outlook/exchange one.

The same goes for the p2p provider. If you don't use any of the listed p2p applications, it is safe to remove.

Why load something when you don't use it? ;)

Well i don't want to remove the provider,but only don't want load it becouse it consumes smoe ram and processor time.
If i click on terminate i think that this provider will not be loaded even on next startup and will not consume any resources.Am i not right.If so there is no need to remove it.I have enough space on my HDD
So to stop these providers consuming resources i must only terminate them or remove them(removing is the last option for me)
Cheers!
AND THANKS FOR THE HELP!

You have been given the best answer (twice), remove elements that you don't use. I only use three of the providers, the rest are removed.

If you subsequently find that you need one of the removed providers, say p2p, then you can reverse the process.

It's your computer, of course you decide what to do with it, we only offered suggestions, but why ask a question that you have already have your own answer?

Yes terminating them will stop them running, but it won't stop them being present in the list of on-access scanners.

If you don't remove them, they are still loaded. (Enabled/disabled doesn't change that) Therefor they still take up some resources.

So removing the not used provider(s) is your only choice.
