I am using Smart Security v188.8.131.52 and everything has been working fine, no Windows updates or changes to the system in days. But just this morning I noticed SmartSecurity is kicking in a startup scan only when I open a program otherwise the startup scan does not kick in. The startup scan isn't a big issue, the problem I am noticing though is that when the startup scan starts my system gets laggy, especially sending emails through Outlook, sent items hang and take forever to send. I tried performing a full system scan but each little dll file took around 4 minutes to scan so I had to cancel it as it was taking way too long. Has anyone else noticed this problem? my task bar has been indicating a startup scan is in progress for the past 4 hours. As a note I even tried going into my scheduler and setting it so that startup scan only performs when the system is idle, that did not work so I tried to disable startup scan all together and still it is happening. Even performed a virus signature update in case it was a messed up signature file. I could really use some help from anyone that knows what might be going on. I would hate to uninstall this software since it has been good to me for months with no trouble.
