[Closed] Performance ....

Hi,
i just purchased ADGuard for Windows but i'm a bit disappointed about performance.
Compared to ublock origin addon for chrome ADGuard is way slower browsing the web.
I tried playing around with filter lists (use the same as ublock) and get it a bit better but its still slow.
Like this i'm continue to use ublock atm.
Any hints to get this optimized ?

I'm using:
Win10 x64 1809
Adguard latest stable v6.4
Chrome latest stable x64
Avast Pro Antivirus

How fast is your internet connection? You might try the latest nightly version of AG for Windows and see if it's any faster.

it's a cable connection with 200 Mbps Down and 20Mbps Up speed.
It's not really a speed problem it's more like a delay when loading websites.

Hello der_Kief, if you disable https filtering is it still slow? In my side the https filtering with eset slow the web loading.

Yeah, if you're using any antivirus/antimalware software, that'd be good to know too. Like @philibeur mentioned, there are incompatibility issues with some AV apps like ESET right now.

Hello!

What anti-virus is installed? (Add AdGuard to it's exclusion list)

Go to AdGuard - Settings - Network - Use WFP driver (on/off)

Meanwhile i tried latest nightly and its a bit better but still not satisfying ...
Now there is on each site i vistit the following error before loading the site: err_ssl_version_interference

This seems to help but its not an acceptable solution for me as this was the main reason why i bought ADGuard

I'm using latest Avast AntiVirus. Adding AdGuard to Avasts exclusion list doesnt solve that issue.

Sounds like a possible incompatibility with Avast. @TheHasagi this is probably for you. :)

As a temporary workaround, if you're willing, you can look in Avast's settings to see if there's some sort of scan HTTPS or SSL type of setting and uncheck that to see if it works then. You might think unchecking such a feature would leave you insecure, but AG for Windows has its own browsing security feature (if you have it enabled) which can act as a substitute to the AV's website scanning feature.

@Boo Berry
disabling HTTPS scanning within Avvast settings was one of the things i did try. But it doenst help with that issue !
As i already wrote what helps is disabling HTTPS filtering within AdGuard....

What kind of an issue is there between Adguard and Eset? I have both and do not have any problem. What should I look out for?

Could you try to disable TLS 1.3 (RMB on the AdGuard's icon from the tray - Settings - Advanced - scroll down and uncheck TLS 1.3).

What version of Avast Pro are you using, exactly? I'm sure that'd help the devs try to reproduce any incompatibility issue(s).

I'm using latest version 19.3.4241.0 of Avast Pro Antivirus and completely turning off doesn't help either. So I guess in my case it's not a problem of Avast in combination with AdGuard ...
