  1. I confused now. How will taking KAVs priority down, by conceding its resources(the CPU cycles due it) to

    other applications? The application/process could very well be a malicious process that KAV is conceding to.

    But I'm just asking, because I'm not even near to being an authority, and I may not be understanding

    what's going on there.

    I always leave that setting unchecked.

    Hello Knight Captain

    I couldn't get the edit function to work right but-

    I now see you were advising me to uncheck the setting, not check it.

    I misunderstood your post. Sorry and thanks, I'm glad to know I have

    it set correctly.

  2. Changing the priority to a higher level won't provide additional protection. If you are worried about performance, try changing the Settings for Compatibility to enable "Concede resources to other applications."

  3. Does anyone know of any possible problems that may be caused by setting the CPU priority of avp.exe

    to 'above normal', or even to 'high'(where I currently have it set) in Task Manager? I just feel that my main

    security process should be afforded the highest priority, to keep a step ahead of any malicious process, to

    arrest any malicious process as soon as possible, before said process can do any harm to my system/data.

    I also employ ThreatFire, and have its priority set to 'above normal'. A small message pops up when changing

    a priority, warning about the possibility of system instability caused by changing the priority of "certain" processes.

    Heck, maybe I should set KAVs priority to 'realtime', a step above 'high'. Why not? The Internet is the Wild West,

    and I often ride into some dangerous towns. Gotta be protected to the utmost.

  4. Here is the product Lifecycle Policy:

    Thanks folks. Yes, my KAV is no longer supported by KL. But I've got this great

    resource, right here, to assist when needed. I have what I believe to be good

    reason(s) in sticking with 7.0 for now. It's sooo very much smaller and lighter

    on CPU and RAM resources, which is somewhat important what with my older

    system. With these Rambus' shuffling yos n nos, this lillo 7 performs - good

    enough for me anyway...

  5. First I should advise that I am still using KAV 7.0, because I don't

    upgrade any apps unless I see a clear advantage/reason to do so.

     

    Sometimes doing routine DB updating I get the usual "Update successful"

    window, but after that reads "Some components were not updated", so I

    run the updater again. After the 2nd update, I get the "Update successful"

    message again with no mention of the "components not updated" ending.

    After the 3rd update run, I finally get a "Your DB does not need updating"

    or something to that effect. I thought maybe because I'm still using KAV 7,

    the updater is telling me that the components necessary to upgrade to a

    newer version are not being downloaded. But as you can see, I do

    eventually get an 'update complete' type of message. But it's that 1st

    message- "Some components were not updated" that bugs me to no end.
