The problem originally, was that I found the (large by my 1.2g standard) CPU drain, and went into AVG settings to disable Res. Shield. By unticking the box. I then would run process explorer and see RS still in operation as other progs. where active. Seemingly unable to shut it down , I tryed to test again by closing AVG. The prompt comes up asking if I'm sure and I close it (yes). Then ran process explorer again, to find RS still in operation behind the scenes. Well I gave up, until I found the tweak the other day.
The tweak seems reversible, but I'm left wondering to what extent I have jeopardized the security of the system AVG is meant to protect. It seams that, captures of tracking cookies are no longer real time and as noted resident shield is no longer looking at every thing thats in operation.
The tweak for AVG was found in Tweakguides Tweaking companion for XP (pg50) (ver.4.2)
Under resident shields settings. AVG/tools/advanced/resident shield/advanced/ there are a few settings, that I was wondering if put to use, might diminish the system drain. Maybe not to nil like the tweak, but noticeably?
Do you know of any setup guides that deal with Resident Shields advanced settings. With perhaps suggested directory exclusions and such, that may make it less of a real-time CPU draw ?
