It should not make much if any indeed difference.

Providing you are talking about the free versions of MBAM and SAS

They do not provide real time protection, they are not really using any resources, until you commission a scan

Whereas Secunia that you had installed was running and scanning your system.

Is there any improvement.

If not clean boot it see if that results in any difference,.

CAUTION only up to and including step 3.

On rebooting from clean boot check before opening a browser that AVAST is running.

Yes, I'm using the free version of MBAM and SAS.

Yes, the pages do open a little faster but the page still jumps.

So with MBAM and SAS, should I only install them when I do a scan?

And only enable Secunia when I do a scan?

No to MBAM and SAS as I said before
Yes to Secunia

Try the clean boot

Try a slightly lower resolution

and if still no different and it is all pages and the desktop as well try reinstalling the grpahics driver.

Hello,
Sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner but I've been away at my daughters.

I did do a clean boot.
It seems to be better.
It hasn't been jumping up and down.

Now should I leave it with this setting?
Does it do anything I should be aware of?

Where would I find the graphics driver to reinstall?

Please bear with me
21 Aug to 29
I have dealth with dozens of topics since then
I will read yours and post shortly

Whilst I am doing so the first and most important is this - from my post on the clean boot

On rebooting from clean boot check before opening a browser that AVAST is running.



Re Graphics drive - Yours are integrated on the motherboard Intel
the last driver was 2007 I would think it unlikely that you do not have it.
simply click on the display adaptor in device manager, open the Intel shown and on the driver tab click update driver.
However if it is this one
http://downloadcente...oller+Hub+(GMCH)

It is pointless as you have it.


Re the clean boot, having satisfied yourself that AVAST is active and that you can go updates.
You amy temporarily leave it.
On the message that appears re system config untility, simply click the small box 0 to check it
DO NOT SHOW this message again.


If you ascertain that some applications etc are not running that you need, you may return to normal boot, and then Hide Microsoft services, and IF the problem occurs again, disable and uncheck startup items, until you find which is causing the problem

If of course you need further help just post

You are welcome.
I feel reasonably certain that now we have, it running without the problem, we, or indeed your goodself, will be able to identify which application or process is causing the problem.
