I open IE myself.
i just installed the latest version of AVG (i.e. 8.xx). This partial hangup has gotten longer. While both the old and new AVG were uninstalled the hangup was considerably very less.
iv placed my bet on shortage of memory. Theres just too less of it for the antivirus to work on startup when ram is most needed.
I don’t think it’s less memory problem. It’s the general behavior of anti-viruses in Vista. Microsoft don’t allow kernel level things in Vista (Kernel Patch Protection). That’s why anti-viruses has to do wried steps which lead less stable system.
The problem might be in AVG AV, as it might be trying to protect from harmful scripts.
Try upgrading to Windows Vista SP1 and install some Anti-Virus (latest version) that was written for Vista SP1 as it allow easier communication with kernel (for Anti-Virus) with new APIs in SP1.
