AVAST Home Version 4.8 Slowing down pc

  RKMonty 16:23 22 Jan 2009

I have had for a few years AVAST AntiVirus and currently have the 4.8 Home version.
I have noticed recently that loading of web pages has slowed down considerably.
The only change that I can notice is the the 'a' icon on my toolbar/taskbar goes round much more than it used to, usually everytime I change a web page etc
Does anyone know why this may be happening ?? Thanks in advance

I have the latest version of Avast! (I've used the AV for some years) and it hasn't slowed down my Firefox browsing one iota...:-)

Right click Avast Ball from the menu select stop provider and select web shield.

How are pages loading now?

Note this disables scanning of web pages as they load

Hi Fruit Bat
Yes it has speeded up the loading of the web pages but the 'a' icon still spins
