When you install AVG 2011 free edition, it starts to make a cache of trustworthy files. These files are then skipped in the future scans making the scan faster. But this caching of trustworthy files takes a lot of time and keeps your hard disk spinning for hours. If you want then you can disable cache server in AVG 2011. Here is how :
- Click on the AVG icon in the notification area. This would open the main AVG window. Alternatively, you can also double-click on the AVG 2011 shortcut on your desktop.
- In the main AVG 2011 window, click Tools → Advanced settings from the menubar.
- From the left side options select Cache Server. Then in the right-side pane, un-check the checkbox labeled Caching enabled as shown.
- Click OK button at the bottom to save the settings.
