Yeah, last question though

Can I just install Avast! and be done with it? No other settings to tinker with? There are too many settings for Avast! that are not too user-friendly, lol.

You can certainly use as is, and venture into the options over time. I personally disabled the Reputation services under the Cloud services tab as it seemed to introduce some delay on my system.

When booting or opening applications when not connected to the internet.

Avast AV features, and slow booting/responses

You can try both ways and see if you notice any difference.

Ooops, sorry

These both query the internet. While booting, and while opening applications. There is no accompanying display, so there is no indication. It took me a while after changing to Avast 7 to realize why applications took longer to open at times. I finally realized it was because I was disconnected from the internet. I have Cable broadband, and my modem has a standby switch that disconnects my PC from the internet when not in use.

I have confirmed the hang by opening an application, that then had a delay, and turning on the standby switch, after which the application opens. This can also happen on boot. I disabled the services to confirm. Now that I am aware, I have them enabled, but on the rare occurrence I have the standby on when opening an application., I turn on the standby switch to allow Avast to connect.

I only mention this as it could conceivably explain a difficult to explain, intermittent lag that defies normal troubleshooting methods. It may never come up, but just thought I'd share.

Hmmm, ok. So as of now the two cloud services produce a delay when not connected to the Internet. Do you recommend to disable even the streaming updates cloud service? What happens when I disable both, any disadvantages?

I have left the streaming updates enabled throughout and no noticeable issue with it. It was just the Reputation Service on my PC. As I say, you may notice no problem on your PC. A Guy
