I have switched from AVG AV Paid to EAM for the remainder of my license. I never experienced any lag going between tabs in FF and downloading and switching back and forth until I installed EAM. What can I do to lower over head without compromising security? Newspopups have been disabled, logs have been shortened from 3000 entries to 250 entries, Surf Protection has been kept at defaults for the most part. Tracking cookies and ad/tracking hosts have been set to silently block. The rest are block and notify. What should I do with the guard settings? They are rather annoying popping up all the time.
