Is anyone else here running the latest version of Avast! Pro and experiencing tremendous slowdowns on their system and Internet usage? I am and it all seemed to happen right after the latest program update that was pushed down last week. My system is an Athlon64 3200+ with 1.25gb ram running on XP x64 and it is now running like a 386 and I can barely use the Internet. Most of the times the web pages will load after about 1.5 minutes or not at all with just the background showing in the browser window. If I disable all of the on access providers then my system speeds back up again and I can browse the Internet very quickly. Of all things, causing my Internet to act like it is running on a 1200baud dialup, it is terrible. Especially since I have a 3mb High speed DSL connection. I really like Avast so far but if I can't get this solved I will have to uninstall it. Does anyone else have this issue? I noticed a post on the Avast forums on it and I replied to it but I am hoping to get this resolved as quick as I can. Also does anyone know of any other decent AV that will run on XP x64 other than Nod32? I would like to have a backup plan in case the Avast issue isn't resolved and I see there still are not many AVs for x64 yet. Thats pretty crazy since XP x64 has been final release now since the beginning of April last year. Thanks for any info on this.
