I have the free version of Avast! antivirus, running Windows XP and I have cable internet. I've never had a problem, but now my system is running SLOW, when I check my emails or try and search the net. I've updated Avast!, scan the disk, removed cookies, run Adware, etc. However, nothing seems to increase the speed. When I shut the antivirus down my system runs like it use to.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
