jimmy.james started following SAS running slow with update on multiple of PC - Need assistance
jimmy.james posted a topic in General QuestionsFirst I like SAS, it does a good job with removing spyware. Unfortunately when I click "update" it can take from 10 -30 mins to update. Processor speed goes to 100%, other applications either freeze up or move extremely slow (30-60secs for a window to come up). Start up time is bad as well. I have this issue on three PC, PC Descriptions are below. I've searched the forum and have followed some of the advice (e.g. make sure "first chance prevention is not enabled"), yet I'm not seeing a difference. Below are the PC stats and issues. Dell Latitude D610 OS - Windows XP Professional FW - McAfee CPU - Intel Pentium 1.8 Ghz Ram - 2 GB Issues: 1. Slow start up 2. SAS takes 10-15 mins to update 3. Processor speeds goes to 100 % and other applications freeze up 4. If SAS canceled (i.e. not allowed to finish), software applicaitons all run slow (e.g. MS IE takes 30-45 secs to come up, MS Office products & Adobe take 1-3 minutes to open, etc) 5. Computer is "sluggish". Local PC Shop Built OS - Windows XP FW - McAfee CPU - Dual Processor 2.4 Ghz Ram - 4 GB Issues 1. SAS takes 8-10 minutes to update 2. Applications run sluggish after running SAS (e.g. Browsers, MS Office, etc) Local PC Shop Built Old OS - Windows 2000 FW - McAfee CUP - 1.1 Ghz Ram - 1.5 Gig 1. Slow start up 2. Updates take 10 - 30+ minutes (note done on a weekly basis) 3. CPU runs at 100% 4. Other applicaitons shut down or don't respond Note all three computes have Spybot S & D which runs quickly and well. McAfee runs at normal speed for FW and Adware detection. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.
