AVG 8 and FEAR

I'm playing FEAR for a second time but since my first play through it I've upgraded to AVG 8 pro.
I'm sure the game is running a bit slower now.
Would more RAM cure it,or not?.

X2 5200,9500gt,2gb Ram.

Cheers.

I got into the habit of just minimising the browser while playing games and that caused no problems but when I was doing that with avg8,things got a bit jerky. The advice given has helped. I now close the browser and alls well.

Thanks.
Nig.

If your not playing online, you could shut avg down before you play ( in fact shut down every thing you don't need) See if it makes a difference. I found that when I went back to medal of honor airborne after cod4 I thought the game was slow and camera angle rather odd, it was just that I got used to the way cod4 did things.

I doubt more ram would cure it, try and see if you have other programs running in the background that may be slowing your pc down.
