AVG 2011 Question: Internet intermitant and e-mail slow

by EventHorizon63 - 3/16/11 5:43 PM

I am trying this as AVG Customer Service has not replied after 2 attempts over 5 days.

I have a Dell Vostro 200 running Windows XP SP3 with a Intel Core 2 Duo E4600 @ 2.4GHz and 3 Gig of RAM. This past Sunday I downloaded from the AVG website the latest full version (AVG 2011 V 10.0.1204 from a previous full version (9 I think) I had and all went well. Problem is, I can't get on the internet all the time and when I do it's minimul. Yahoo will load but no pictures, links in Yahoo are of no use as I click on them and get tired of waiting for something to load after 5 minutes. I even tried going through AVG to their tech support (Help pull down menu) and it wouldn't even load. It kept trying however. Today, 325 kb (yes, kb) worth of e-mails took 2 minutes to load. I have been through all the setup screens I can find thinking something is set to MAX protection but nothing. I have disabled the Link Scanner and that did no good. I have switched the Firewall on and off and no help there either. The only (and I mean only) website that will load like it used to, no matter what, is by banks website. Any help would be appreciated. I read through 4-5 pages of posts here at CNET and did not come across this type of issue. Oh Yea, if I dissable AVG, Internet runs like it did when I used version 9.
