So I upgraded my Kaspersky Anti-Virus today because the license was about to run out (in a week or so).
And since the new license key wouldn’t work with my current software, I installed the new software as well.
And since then, things feel like molasses, especially browser start and Flash videos. Watching them full-screen just doesn’t work at all, and even watching them in a window, the video takes about five seconds to kick in, though the sound starts playing already. Even worse if you want to go back just a tad in a video: the sound picks up where you clicked but since the video takes a while to get going, you miss the bit you wanted to watch again.
I’m not particularly happy, and hope this’ll sort itself out.
Otherwise, I foresee some turning off of things in the future.
Edit: After a reboot, Flash videos seem usable again. Browser still seems a bit slow, though. Will have to keep an eye on things.
