Security vs Freedo^H^H^H^H^H^H Performance

Posted on:April 28 2010

Just wondered why the performance dropped strangely. The framerate of a CopperLicht scene just dropped from 40 to something between 3 and 10, both in Chrome/Chromium and in FireFox/MineField.
Reverting my recent changes didn't help. Strange. A short look at the notification icons next to the task bar clock then revealed the problem: Virus scanner running. Argl.


My virus scan used to be set to 3:00am Sunday morning; so this was usually a good sign that I was up late working when I should be sleeping! I have to admit though that I haven't ran a virus scanner in over a decade but neither have I used windows on my home pc during that time either; I realise other OSes don't have as many people writing viruses for them as windows but I haven't been burned yet so until I start getting burned it'll probably stay that way.

Heh; I even used to kill explorer.exe cause it used too many resources at one point :-D. Also TortoiseSVNProc.exe used to hoard memory but they seem to have fixed that in the latest revisions....

Well, here at work my Computer is often stuck for about 10 minutes because the virus scanner goes nuts, but my home-PC doesn't have such problems.
