  1. Hello, My os is windows 7 professional 64 bits and I use Adaware 12 (12.4.930.11587) Pro version. I'm experiencing some issues when I open folders. I went to Microsoft support forum first and one of their recommendations was to check how it works if I disable the antivirus and in my case when I did that the folder was working fine again, also someone in the MS forum said that it was a known issue from Adaware so now I'm asking to you. The issue is that windows explorer is working pretty slow, when I open any folder at first I see just a few files (icons) or even none of them and then gradually they start to show up one by one of few at a time while the green loading bar at the folder address is filling. Depending on how big the folder is this could take even some minutes to be able to see all the files there, and it happens as I said with any folder like if adaware was scanning every single file everytime I open a folder. This also makes some softwares to work slow such as a music player when I try to open a folder with music files from the software it also at first shows empty folders. I think same issue has affected PC booting since I've noticed the required time has increased but I didn't make tests on this matter with and without adaware. I guess the easy way would be just remove Adaware and buy some other antivirus but despite this issue I was always happy with Adaware since the version 10 I even have it on 2 other computers (with windows 10 and no performance issues) so I would prefer to get a fix rather than just buying another antivirus.
