Autoit Folder Slow

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone notice that any folder that has autoit script EXE's in it, takes forever to open? It seems like it takes a while, and freezes windows explorer for a minute or 2 (dpeneding on how many EXE's are in that folder that were created by autoit).

I have tried this from a networked drive (Server) and off the local C drive, all the same. Also all the computers I tried this on, it was the same thing.

I've seen this & I've always assumed it to be AV related.

Ah, antivirus, that makes sense. Is there any way around it?

Quit writing viruses? :)

Try compiling without UPX compression and see if that helps.

I have the same problem. With UPX it's an immediate Virus. Without, it still takes a long time to "check" each file.

... You gotta love how the AV knows you wrote a virus before it's even released!!!...??? :)

bartekd,

I get the same "slow-down" when opening any folder containing compressed files. I have always assumed it is the AV decompressing the files before scanning.

As you have created the compiled .exes, you could add the relevant folders to your AV exclusion list - I do that when a new update to my AV decides that AutoIt is a virus.

Your choice: have an AV and accept that its protection (of whatever level) has a certain price - or live without it.

I'm going to assume we are talking about 3.3.0.0 ... I wonder if you changed the icon to something different or lower res when you compile if it would open faster... just a thought.

Very good Ron. I changed the icon, and as they listed slowly, I did notice that the icon was last to show on each file.
