If you use a Solid State Drive (SSD) drive on your laptop or PC then its advisable that you reduce the writes to this device. It helps prolong their life. One of the most important things to achieve that is to use a RAM Disk. The second most important thing to do is to reduce the logging by all software which you use on your system. AVG Antivirus performs extensive writing to the disk when its running on your system so its advisable to reduce this logging. Most of this logging is inconsequential and isn't used for any analysis. Here are the steps:

To Reduce logging

  • Change all CFG files in C:\ProgramData\Avg\log\* and sub-directories to replace "Severity = Info" to "Severity = Fatal".
    There may be multiple severity values in single .cfg file. Repeat this for all .cfg files present in the log folder and restart your computer afterwards.
    We used a tool called fnr.exe - Find And Replace Tool to make this change. It performs search and replace in one go in all the files.
