I installed the latest version 5.0.2 on Win XP SP3 last Saturday. Everything was running smoothly, except for sfc.exe getting up to 500 MB of ram on boot up, but after a couple of minutes it would drop to 30 MB.
Just today freshclam.exe and freshclamwrap.exe reared their ugly heads. A few questions:
A. Isn't it strange that I noticed them 6 days after installing, that they didn't come up before?
B. Freshclam.exe was running at constant 50% of CPU, overheating my laptop, for about 15-20 minutes. It then died down on its own and sfc.exe ran at 50% of CPU for about 1 minute. Then back to normal.
I disabled ClamAV engine. Should I also disable Auto definition updates?
Any suggestions? Is this a known issue on Win XP? Thanks!
