Virus update every day-makes puter slow to snail speed
Lately, Security Center has been installing updates EVERY DAY! They install correctly, but it makes Internet Explorer slow doen to a snail's pace. When it is installing, it takes 5 minutes for a web page to load! It also slows down like this when doing a scan. Any idea about how I can resolve this.
RE: Virus update every day-makes puter slow to snail speed
I'm glad someone else mentioned this! I asked Macafee Support about it and they didn't seem to know what I was talking about. I can understand why scanning the whole computer takes up a lot of resources and slows things down, but why should it take so long to 'update' the virus data? I think what happens is that Macafee makes your computer reinstall the entire thing every time they update - instead of just adding the new virus data. That would explain why it takes so long and slows down the computer for a few minutes. Anyone else got any ideas about this, and why Macafee can't figure out a way to do their almost daily updates a bit more efficiently?
