after trying it for the first time. I had high hopes that this
program would work well after the 2nd installation.
I was wrong.
Just as occurred the first time around, immediately after installing
Prevx my computer's CPU zoomed to 100% and rarely went below that. As
I burn lots of DVD's -- which takes enough processing power itself --
my only recourse after several reboots (to see if the problem would
recur, which it did) I ultimately uninstaled Prevx and now my
computer's CPU usage is in reasonable range again.
I can't imagine that this program is SUPPOSED to overload the
processor to the extent that the user can hardly do anything else on
the computer while its running.
I wonder if Prevx conflicts with Comodo Personal Firewall?
Any other Prevx users/critics comments welcomed!
My computer's specs:
AMD Sempron 3500+
1.43 GB RAM
XP Home, Service Pack 2
Comodo Personal Firewall
SuperAntiSpyware (paid user -- it finds tracking cookies but has never
found anything more serious, so I don't recommend it -- it's NOT
nearly as robust as the "Find's ALL the spyware, not just the easy
ones" hype would suggest)
