Speed up your computer while using Kaspersky antivirus

If you have a multi-core processor, (with hyper-threading  at least) you give your computer a little speed boost by limiting the antivirus and any other security firewalls to use only one core.

To do that simply identify the antivirus process from the task manager (avp.exe for kaspersky), then right click it and select  set affinity.

deselect all but one core.

Thats it!

This method may work with other antiviruses, but I just tested it on Kaspersky 2009
