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.

Short answer: Please leave all of them at default level.

 

 

Seems the priorities reset themselves back to 'normal' after a reboot,

so I'm not going to keep changing them every reboot.

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."

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.
