Windows XP Starting IP Protection Takes 4 Minutes


Recommended Posts

I recently installed Malwarebytes Pro on my Windows XP Home desktop. I noticed that when performing an update or starting the Website Blocking (IP Protection) causes the CPU to ramp up to 100%. Upon reviewing the protection log files, it looks like it is regularly taking about 4 minutes from the the start of IP Protection until the time IP Protection is loaded.

After service is up and running, everything else seems relatively normal. I don't experience any further performance issues. I'm running Avast Free v8. Any help would be much appreciated.

Then double click dds.scr or dds.com to run the tool, on Vista or Win 7 right click and select Run as administrator

A black DOS console should open and run for a moment.
