How to speed up AVG version 8

You can make your slow AVG version 8 work faster by switching off its LinkScanner (also called Search-Shield).

Here’s how:

  • Right click on Windows’ tooltray’s AVG8 icon.
  • Choose “Open AVG User Interface”
  • Go to “Tools” on AVG8’s menu bar
  • Choose “Advanced Settings” on pull-down menu
  • Click “LinkScanner” in left panel
  • Delete the check-mark from the box next to “Enable AVG Search-Shield”
  • Restart computer

The idea here is that AVG’s LinkScanner, while a good idea in theory, is not especially effective, so why allow it to slow down your PC?
