Why would AVG Free 8 slow down Vista a lot? Are there config settings I can do to speed the system back up? I have isolated it to AVG as installing it slows the machine down, removing it speeds it back up!

Hi,

please provide us with all needed information.

And also amount of operating RAM and used processor.

The speed up could be done by uninstallation of other AVG components (LinkScanner, E-mail scanner).

Thanks
