AVG slows connection

Postby UPucker » Mon Jun 29, 2020 2:54 am

When AVG is running, my connection dls at 1/2 speed. If I disable it I get full speed. I tried adding newsbinpro64.exe to the exemption list but that did not fix the problem. Any ideas?

Add the Newsbin work-folders to the exception list, IE %LocalAppData%\Newsbin so that it doesn't try to scan temporary files and headers.

You could probably get away with just exclude specific directories under that, probably Chunks, Import and SPOOL_V6 ought to do it but it's easier/safer to just tell it to stay away from the entire directory, it COULD also be scanning some of the db3 files in that directory.
