    "Slow, single-threaded internet access"

    March 6, 2013  |   By Doh_1


    Fast scans.


    Slowed down my internet access unacceptably


    Had high hopes for this antivirus. I was using Eset Nod32, which has been slipping in the ratings and reviews. So I decided to try this one, and did like the fast scanning, and having root kit scanning happening, as well. However, it seems to single-thread my internet access...when I try to access a page on the internet and it takes some time to load, then I can't do anything else with my browser. This is just not acceptable to me. Even though I'm using Windows 8 on a very fast computer it gets very slow and there are periods of time where I can do nothing interesting.

    Too bad. Going back to Nod32 until I can find a better alternative.
