Hello,
I've noticed that the AVG virus scan slow down my computer drastically more than it used to. Its been happening for quite some time now. I used to be able to have the scan at high priority and still be able to open up google chrome and browse the internet no problem, but now I can't even do that when i have the scan set at user friendly.

My computer is running windows 7 64-bit, Intel Core i5 2.3 GHz, and 6 GB RAM.

Thanks, Jason
