    Windows Vista becomes terribly slow after Installing Quick heal antivirus


    It's been a week, when I installed Quick heal antivirus 2016 on my PC. Right after installing the application on to the computer it started to updated the virus database than when i restarted my computer I felt that Quick heal antivirus has been utilizing my PC resources more than it should. I only installed a 3 month free trial.

    1. Computer takes more time to load, before installing quickheal
    2. IE and other browser also takes more time to open, when I watch video on Youtube it even hangs for a while.
    3. Media player also hangs videos.

    Should i remove quick heal antivirus, will it be restored my windows to the original state or i go for clean install.

    I would try uninstalling the antivirus. If it is all removed it is most likely that your performance will return to normal. You may want to Google QuickHeal uninstall tool and see if they suggest any special software or method to uninstall.

    If it were me, I would download the free Macrium Reflect and make an image of your system. If anything goes wrong you can reinstall everything with Macrium.
