I just wanna ask if what's happening to my computer it runs very slow and I've noticed that every time the Kaspersky updater is running it also moves slowly. Can you help me to solve this or it is just normal?

Without any details on your configuration it is difficult to specifically point out the problem. Almost all antivirus software tends to slow down the computer. But kaspersky do not slow down the computer that much. If you are using vista then immidiately change to XP. It will save you space and increase speed. Since while updating Kaspersky your machine is getting very slow I guess you are low on RAM and Processor speed. Upgrading them might help as well. Give me a little more details about your configuration and I can help you a little more.

Thanks for the immediate response to my discussion. I am using windows XP. You're correct maybe my RAM or processor needs upgrading that is why it runs very slow. Thank you again.

You may have low virtual memory or you have to many programs running on the start up hope that helps.

Yes you are correct sometimes a pop-up box saying "low virtual memory". And I consulted this to our technician and I need to deleted some files not needed or I can transfer it to our server. Thanks for responding. Have a nice day.

I also have the same problem with my computer because of late i notice its performance has reduced significantly, i don't know whether my antivirus is not working well or is just to porous to allow viruses to come in.

You might as well check your computer. A very slow moving computer will really ruin your day and delayed some works to be done. So better consult a technician to diagnose whats happening. Have a nice day.

First, you have to check your hard drive where your system is installed. Check if it has still free space at least 1 gigabyte or about 3 to 5 gigs. If it doesn't have, just delete some the unneeded files on it and it should make the difference. If it has enough free space, maybe you're just opening too many applications that your virtual memory cannot handle. If you need any performance tweaks, just visit my blog at www.pcloverstalk.blogspot.com you can also err out your concerns about computers out there and I'll be glad to answer you back.
