I have been using AVG Internet Security Software, free edition for some time.Recently a message appeared, asking me to click to update to the latest version.AVG helps protect your computer from viruses, worms and other malware threats by examining every application that runs.
Perform this task first, and you may fix your slow start-up problem and help your computer run faster.
You may think that running several anti-virus programs at once increases your protection, but AVG recommends using one security program to protect your computer. Security apps that conflict with AVG include Norton, Avast and Microsoft Security Essentials.
If your computer has limited resources, such as hard drive space and memory, it can take longer for AVG to start.
While it's possible to install the program if your computer meets the minimum system requirements, AVG recommends running the program on a computer that meets its recommended requirements that are higher than the minimum requirements.
You can view AVG requirements on the company's system requirements webpage.
You can often resolve problems by ensuring that your computer is running the latest version of a software program.
Things may also slow down when the application runs a system test.
Open AVG and click "Reports" when you’d like to see a report that shows the updates and tests that the software has performed.
In fact, it can take 10 minutes or more for the program to perform its initial scan when you first install the program.
