So recently I need to take control of my ever so slow computer and downloaded COMODO firewill and after cleaning up useless start ups and such I also found a great tutorial on how to take control of AVG free 8.0. I just wanted the virus and spyware stuff installed from AVG so I turned off a lot of annoyances. Now everytime I turn on my computer I get 2 outbound connections that avgnsx.exe is using and then as soon as I go into firefox it jumps up to more like 30 connections. Can this slow down the computer? How do I limit that? Do I need to have avgnsx.exe running? how do I turn it off? Is there a better free virus protector out there?
