New MSE & Very Slow WinASO

Has anyone updated their Microsoft Security Essentials and noticed a slowdown in WinASO's Registry scan speed? I am running Windows XP Pro.

Since updating the MSE programme (not just the anti-virus definitions) yesterday I find that WinASO 4.53 scans the registry very slowly, at about a tenth of the speed before updating MSE.

If I stop MSE WinASO's scan speed goes back to normal. If I uninstall MSE and go back to an earlier version the problem also goes away.

It's not the end of the world; I can always use another anti-virus programme. I just wondered if anyone else had noticed the same problem?

Peter.
