Hey guys, I just quit the game i was playing and looked as task manager and realised vprot.exe was using over 1.1gb of physical memory and my game was only using 500mb.
I know this is an application associated with AVG and wanted to know if i can permanently remove vprot.exe or heavily reduce it's resource usage as it really shouldn't need over 100mb of memory in my opinion.
I have tried disabling this application on startup using msconfig, but it still turns itself on.
I've got another problem with VPROT.EXE!
I want to permanently change "NewTabPageShow"=dword:00000000 to "NewTabPageShow"=dword:00000002 in [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\TabbedBrowsing].
But everytime after REBOOT of my PC, the value has been reset to "NewTabPageShow"=dword:00000000. I'm running W7 Ultimate 64 bit and IE9.
Virus protection AVG 2012, license no. 9A-NXAQP-J0R23-3FP0A-YBXMB.
Your vprot.exe is the culprit!
When I disable vprot.exe through MSCONFIG.EXE, tab Start, and reboots, the NewTabPageShow comes up as wanted with dword:00000002.
Enabling vprot.exe again and reboot, the NewTabPageShow comes up with dword:00000000 (blank page).
