Slow response in deleting files

Recommended Posts

Frequently, I experience quite a delay when I'm trying to delete a file(s). I'm thinking that Avast may be playing a role in this (but I'm not sure). I don't remember having this problem until I switched my AV software from Avira to Avast not too long ago. This is certainly not a serious issue, but at times it's rather annoying.

 

If my assumption is correct, is there something in Avast to either check or uncheck to keep this from happening.

Well to confirm that it is Avast first, you could try disabling the AV as a whole and deleting a bunch of files.

 

Try poking around the settings ,and if you can't find anything that seems to be it, post on their forums.

 

Wost case scenario: new AV?

Are you deleting to Recycle bin? Try pressing SHIFT+DEL to avoid Recycle bin and to find out if that makes a difference. If so, Avast may be checking Recycle Bin.

Yes, I am deleting to the Recycle Bin -- and I'm now thinking that might be the problem -- might be just too big. I also have two USB external drives totaling 3TB attached. So, I just reduced my Recycle Bin to 1% Global.

 

Regarding Avast . . . I'm not yet a seasoned Avast user. So, if necessary, I'm just wondering if there's somewhere in Avast to exclude it from checking the Recycle Bin.
