Question about Computers & Internet
I installed AVG anti-virus and internet security and now windows vista and all the programs I run in it experience occasional "gaps" where the screen will freeze from anywhere from 20seconds to two minutes. It seems almost like there is a lag of some sort, but I don't know why. I have 2gb of ram which I know isn't the most out there but should be sufficent to run a simple anti-virus right? How do I stop the "gaps"
I'm not sure about AVG, but I do know most anti-virus software has options in setup, where you can alter the level of packet inspection.. Meaning the software inspects every file that is sent & rceived by the pc. If you have it set to the highest level, it will definitely slow the sending & receiving of traffic to the internet or intranet. If there is a medium user level, try that. If you need help with investigating this, please ask. Also ulises_zero's idea of re-installing could be worth a try, being careful about what options you might choose when setting up the software.
