AVG Internet Security 2011 using alot of memory usage

Postby woofdum » Fri Oct 01, 2010 12:11 pm

I just upgraded me AVG9 to AVG 2011 and it's been lagging since. I've looked into windows task manager and it shows that AVG processes are using a lot of memory compared to other programs.
I'm running windows XP home edition 2002 sp3.

1. Is there a way to reduce the memory usage?
2. Could you please explain what each process is and do? (Refer to the list below)
3. Will it end a process if i disabled a feature (eg. ID protection)?
4. What does 'game mode' do in the firewall settings?


Here is a list of the processes and its (approximate) memory usage.
    avgrsx.exe - 400 K
    avgnsx.exe - 450 K - 900K
    AVGIDAgent.exe - 17,000 K
    avgam.exe - 550 K
    avgtray.exe - 2,000 K
    avgemcx,exe - 6,000 K
    avgcsrvx.exe - Wide range: 200 K - 30,000 K (Currently, it's 10,000 K)
    avgcsrvx.exe → Why do I have two?
    avgchsvx.exe - 700 K
    avgwdsvc.exe - 23,000 K
    AVGIDMonitor.exe - 4,000 K
    avgfws.exe - 36,000 K

It's got a lot of features compared to AVG9, but too many, and it's lagging my computer!

Anyway, could someone answer those questions? Thanks in advance. :D

avgwdsvc.exe

It is not system memory that is being hogged (little CPU or memory), but disk activity. In 4 hours, the programme has made 7 million reads. This programme plus WDDMstatus/service programs are constantly reading even when I am doing little. Sometimes it takes 1 1/2 minutes before the computer starts responding to mouse or keyboad.

I disabled resident shield but that has not stopped the churning.

I am using XP sp3 with 2011 free edition.

Any ideas?

But what happens if he encounters tracking cookies? Wouldn't you want those stopped? I'm also running an XP and likewise it is getting slow, but not that bad since I've updated to 2012 doing the full removal and reload with the latest program. I would try that first.

hi..
AVG is a very good Anti virus,which is secure the our computer system.It is not system memory that is being hogged (little CPU or memory), but disk activity. In 4 hours, the programme has made 7 million reads. This programme plus WDDMstatus/service programs are constantly reading even when I am doing little. Sometimes it takes 1 1/2 minutes before the computer starts responding to mouse or keyboad.
