Users have started to moan and complain that Windows has become much slower after installing this week’s April 2019 Patch Tuesday updates.
It has been reported that there’s ambivalence between Windows and other software like Sophos, Avast and Avira Anti-virus.
These are the main cause of the Windows becoming frozen and the updates are not completely installed. The reports were mainly from Windows 7 and Windows 10 users.
The users face issues like lag in games, video streaming issues, unable to start programs, taking a long time to start or reboot, etc.
“I have windows 10 and it’s done it to my computer. It is extremely slow. It shuts itself down and takes forever to restart or reboot”, says a user of Windows 10.
When a user opts for their own choice of anti-virus, Windows defender will disable its real-time protection.
It seems few users face a problem where the Windows Defender is being enabled automatically, even when their own choice of anti-virus is installed.
When two anti-virus programs simultaneously perform actions, it would definitely make the computer and software become slow and gain other issues.
Another user states that “I upgraded, feels more like downgraded, to Windows 7 and my computer is now RIDICULOUSLY slow.
Frame rates are so choppy, I cannot run online programs, even viewing pictures in the image viewer requires buffering….
This has been so extremely frustrating.” This shows that the user’s issues were being caused by Windows Defender.
After all, this happened, there’s no word from Microsoft showing about their awareness of the reported issues. Avira posted a supporting article its title was simply articulated which says- “Why does my system run very slow?”.
