How does Abtrusion Protector affect the performance of my computer?

Usually, Abtrusion Security has very limited effect on performance. Whenever an executable file is launched, Abtrusion Protector will first read through the file, calculate a digital thumbprint of it and compare the thumbprint to its own database. Normally there is no noticeable effect on performance from this.

One of the few instances when there will be a noticeable delay is when running a very large application from a slow network drive or CD-ROM. Abtrusion Protector will have to read the entire file before it can decide whether to let Windows run it or not. Windows on the other hand will only load parts of the file, as they are needed. However, Windows will have to read the entire file sooner or later too, so in the end, there will not be much difference.

If your computer has very limited amounts of memory, the fact that you are going to run yet another application may slow things down a bit.
