Cygwin and AVG
Sat Nov 13 17:22:00 GMT 2010
After the update from AVG9 Free to AVG 2011 Free, I notice a great slow
down using Cygwin. A few applications, like 'wget' and 'python', are
marked as 'malaware' by the new AVG (surely false positives), and now
building things take much more time. For example, a full bootstrap of
Emacs, takes more than an hour. Under AVG9, instead, it took *only*
about 25 minutes.
Has Cygwin people ideas/tricks on how avoid this?
Perhaps is time to change AV?
