CCleaner very slow (both loading and scanning)

Recommended Posts

You proved that it's not just the new version of CCleaner that's running slow for you.

 

Since you weren't having any problems until around the 29th of October, I'd look at any new programs or updates to existing programs. For example, Firefox 25.0 was just released on the 29th. If your running V25.0., CCleaner could be having a problem cleaning it.

 

I did update to FF 25.0, but i did this after after the problem started. The only other thing has been daily updates of my Kaspersky Internet Security. Perhaps its a problem with Kaspersky, or something went screwy with my computer in general. Other applications still seem to be running fine.

Antivirus is always a bottleneck of a PC causing a speed penalty, and real-time protection antivirus software will scan everything CCleaner does such as deleting files, etc. Could just be something that your antivirus doesn't like about CCleaner, and since you have to pay to use Kaspersky maybe hint at them if they have a forum to check into compatibility issues.

 

One thing I learned using Panda Cloud Antivirus was to run a daily Optimised Scan ("Quick Scan"), and then after doing that it wouldn't cause me a speed penalty when opening many programs.

Thanks for the advice. I've noticed over the last couple of times that I've opened Kaspersky it is a little slow to navigate, so perhaps the problem lies there.
