Avast virus definitions not updating
I have tried AVG, Panda, and some other antivirus programs..free. It can be scheduled to run whenever I want it to....usually taking about 37 minutes for a Full Scan. I use the File System Shield, and Ma Avast is great, especially compared to Norton.Norton injects a virus only they can get rid of, and sometimes they can't even fix their own virus.For years Avast was the only free Anti-Virus I would use or recommend. And the final reason I am moving away from Avast is that it seems to take longer and longer for Windows to boot up with it installed.Avast won me away from Norton Anti-Virus back in the day, simply because it was so fast starting up Windows. So the lack of controls that allow you to change settings on ads and pop ups and the more confusing interface might be tolerable, but the slow speed is not. The 2 prior viruses that got through, I was able to fix with help that I found on Google.When you get to the screen that shows the items to be installed uncheck the option to install "Browser Protection".avast will now be installed without the browser add-ons and you will not encounter this issue.
I wonder how many AVG users have been tempted to abandon AVG for this very reason and give Zonealarms new package a try.I just replaced a hard drive and and installed Avast.Over the last several days, I noticed that when I click on a web site, it is taking painfully long to load. I do not recall this problem in earlier versions, but it has me considering another program.However, its efficiency depends on the virus definition information, which is periodically updated.If automatic updates cannot be performed (for instance, Internet access is not available) or you simply want to initiate the update process manually, Avira Antivir Virus Definition File Update can help you make sure that the definition files of your Avira product are up-to-date.

Norton users switched to Avast, but I do recommend once you have your 30 days, switch to AVG and Malware Bytes, preferably Spybot. use, as it's free and it obviously misses somethings, slows down performance, etc. First I was not sure if the issue was avast, the website or the IE.
