Switching off AV


Recommended Posts

Until a few updates ago, Game Booster has always turned off Avira's Antivir. It hasn't done that in a while. Is it possible to add it in an update, or can anyone tell me which process I should add to the ini file manually?


Turning off antivirus can cause a large performance boost for some games that load a lot. I understand that security risks ;)

OK Squee,


Use it with your own risk then.


In the last updates, IObit added a White List for A/V and security applications for security reasons.


You have to delete the name of that specific application from WhiteList.ini file.


The file is at :

For Vista and 7,

C:\ProgramData\IObit\Game Booster


For XP,

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\IObit\Game Booster


You have to show your hidden files in Folder Options to see that file.

Thanks a lot! :mrgreen:


Yes, of course at my own risk. Haven't had a virus since Win95 and not planning on starting to break that streak now :D


I finally managed. First remove from whitelist.ini, add to services in gamebooster.ini and for avira's antivir I also had to remove a protection within antivir as it had its own built-in protection against turning off the services.


Thanks again, may it help others that understand the risks...
