Extremely slow internet when AdGuard enabled

Adguard can cause high cpu usage on older processors.

For example, my old Intel i7 930 struggles. Matters not what browser I use or application. Max, it can handle with Adguard running is around 300mbps down and 400mbps upload. Both times CPU is maxed out. Not sure why upload is so much faster.

Close Adguard and I get 450mbps down and 600mbps upload. Again CPU basically maxed out.

Using about 11GG of 16GB of DDR3 triple channel RAM. RAM is NOT an issue. All the CPU.

So yea if using older hardware your CPU is holding you back.

My ISP is AT&T Fiber 1Gbps/1Gbps. Happy enough for now with 300/400 with AdGuard running. After all I did only have 100mbps/20mbps Spectrum cable just a week ago. hehe

Every computer I use Adguard on has the same issue. Limited by slower CPU.

Hit this same problem after upgrading to Windows 18334 insider build. Basically cannot browse with Adguard enabled.

When AdGuard is enabled, My internet slows down dramatically to the point it is painful to browse. I don't have any miscellaneous software installed.

I have tried the following:

1. Uninstall/Reinstall AdGuard
2. Reset AdGuard settings
3. Turn off extensions (userscripts)
4. Turn off WFP network driver filtering
5. Speed Tests

When AdGuard is disabled, I get 17MBPS. When AdGuard is enabled, it goes down to 4MBPS. It is driving me f**king insane.

I find that using uBlock Origin works and doesn't slow down my browsing. Is there anything more I can do?
This may generally happen when you have enabled too many anti malware or anti virus at the same time, try removing all other extensions that are of no use, and then try to connect AdGuard again.

Seems my problem is most specific to Firefox (66 beta). Tried AdGuard nightly, no help. It seems most pages are slow due to TLS handshake to local.adguard.com (I have it whitelisted & excluded from content analysis in Eset.).

What happens if you use a download manager like IDM or jdownloader or likewise?
Although the first evidence of why local.adguard.com is hampering your speed that much is questionable as well. Youjizz Pornhub Tubegalore
