    Ever since I installed avast! anti virus, computer takes forever to get to next webpage or website. Is the antivirus the problem, or isit something else?

    Make sure you completely update your antivirus--especially when it's new. The application may be trying to run updates until it has them all.

    Most antivirus programs will slow things down some, but shouldn't slow your system to a crawl...

    Downloaded the antivirus last night. Shouldn't all the updates be taken care of by now? Don't know much about Avast! antivirus.

    Go here... to update, and go back until no updates are available. Reboot, and see if that helps...

    Avast! all updated. Still loading very, very slowly. So much for high speed internet, huh?
