    Hi Chris,

    I wasn't able to recreate any of the things you experienced. Can you send me the steps to reproduce? It would be helpful if you could provide as much detail as you can.

    Below are some brief notes describing the URLs and files I encountered. I found two URLs in our DB from 2013, but they've now been removed.

    Hi,

     

    The downloads have been tested and timed:

     

    Client with Ad-aware/ Without Ad-aware

    CC 73s / 60s

    MC 139s / 65s

    LC 106s / 70s

    C7 104s / 85s

    SH 110s / 80s

     

    These differences are not as big as I was initially advised, however there is a difference.

     

    Is this just the fact that Ad-Aware is scanning the download file that causes this delay of between 15-70 seconds? Is there anything that can be done about it?

     

    Thanks again

     

    Chris

    Yes. I didn't see any difference in download speed when Ad-Aware was installed and not installed.

    Yes I understand that enabling an AV software is a choice taken with the knowledge that it may scan download files and web pages, thus increasing loading/wait time.

     

    thanks

    I can't comment on the length of download time recorded in your test, but essentially, yes, Ad-Aware checks downloading files.

    Is there anything that can be done about it?


     

    There are no immediate plans to review how Ad-Aware handles incoming files but if it becomes problematic/important enough to our users, yes, we will certainly look at it.

    Andy
