Need to make Update Program more efficient


Recommended Posts

Was told before that the update program and its use of processor cycles is due to Windows 7. So how is it that I can watch AVG update run with twice as many data input and it runs in a fraction of the time? No its not Windows 7 but more likely the update program. I mean we are talking 100% CPU for 5 to 10 minutes.

Greetings :)

This behavior is specific to the API's within Windows 7 which we are currently using for updating the list of IP addresses in our database which is used for blocking malicious websites. We currently have a new version, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.65 in beta testing here which eliminates the CPU spikes when updates are performed on Windows Vista and Windows 7.
