Can AntiVirus Slow Down a Computer?

Post by ron »

I installed an AntiVirus on my Windows computer, and now the system is slow. Is it normal or should I worry?

My Computer is Slow After Installing an AntiVirus

Post by Alex George »

An AntiVirus application can slow down a computer if it does not have the minimum required resources. Which AntiVirus did you install on your computer? Can you tell us the OS, RAM, and other specifications?
