Problem: Security Centre loads avvscan.dat at windows startup. While it is loading, I can't load any program nor accessing the harddisks in "My Computer". The avvscan.dat is 73MB. The process takes 1 minutes. I am annoyed by this because I can't wait for so long if i need to access some files urgently.
Questions: 1)Can I disable Security Centre at windows startup(instead of uninstalling it), so that it wront load avvscan.dat?
2)Is it a necessary to load avvscan.dat at Mcafee Security Centre startup?
3)Is it normal for the avvscan.dat file to be as large as 73MB?
Context: Windows XP pro, 2GB, Core2D-2.3G DAT:5756.0 Engine:5301.4018
That is part of the actual daily update for VirusScan. I suggest that you alter the update settings to notify you first.
Double-click the taskbar icon to open Security Center Click Advanced Menu (bottom left) Click Configure (left) With SecurityCenter highlighted at top left Click Advanced (right) Click Update Options (left)
