    Fresh installation of Windows 7 for testing purposes. Just a quick note; not much testing was done to troubleshoot nor rectify this as I didn't have the time. But it peaked my curiosity. Symptoms were abnormally slow boot times, slow program launches, slow reads in general. I removed Dr Web Pro 6 and immediately noticed a difference. I am running Windows Security Essentials without any issue.

    Just wanted to see if anyone has any of the same issues.

    Specifications:
    Thinkpad R61, T7100, 4GB DDR2-667, Intel X25-M G2

    i got on fine with v5 but v6 grinds this to a halt, 6 core 3gz cpu with 4 gb of ram using windows 7 64 bit. I have tried it a few times when they release a major update but always slows everything down very noticably and pretty much halves all my benchmarks!
    Like you I could probably tweek it but havnt the time or patience!

    I don't understand SergM is this the suggested settings for DrWeb and a SSD drive?

    This is the lightest setting for SpiderGuard and should give the least conflicts.

    So, is this just what happened with the latest DrWeb or is there an issue with DrWeb and Solid State Drives?

    Just curious, as I don't use Windows that much and was extremely surprised at the heft of DrWeb.

    Dr Web is generally one of the lightest footprint AVs but it may well have a problem with SSDs if you still have a problem after changing the default settings of SpiderGuard.

    If Serge does not return to this post, maybe best to post over on their forums or contact them directly .

    Yeah, I got you. Just thought I would see what the deal is, throw the question around and see what I got from here.

    I don't really have time anymore for digging around in AV software, just looking for insight ;)

    Thanks

    I use it on a much weaker laptop than the rest here, and my laptop has never been faster with the exception of no AV.

    I agree WD. I have used a lot of products but the Web is quicker then the majority of them. But all products act different.

    Greetings to all. My geographical placing is GMT+10. And consequently I could not answer some questions quickly. :)
    OS Windows maу consider\define\mount SSD drives as a removable devices.
    Therefore the option "Scan the removable media" will become main in speed of work of an antiviruss
