    "New Face is good"

    PC seems to slow down when scanning. Wish it would warn me to log off internet before it starts scanning.Cannot check emails during random updates.


    Liked the older version better because I could continue to work both off and online while it updated.

    Has any one else experienced this?

    If you go to "advanced settings" and change the scan priority to "low" instead of "user sensitive", it will let you do other things while scanning with lower resource usage!Also do the same for scheduled scans, if you expect to be using your computer during any scheduled scans.
