I know its from my antivirus- realtime scanning or something (Symantec). Whats the easiest (fastest) way to get rid of rtvscan.exe to speed up processes a bit. I don't really want to uninstall the program. Thanks.

What does it do?

Symantec Internet Security Suite is taking Norton AV to another level and scan the files as they enter your system instead of the usual scan right after they hit your system. You should not end this process if you have it running.

I wouldn't end it. It would render SAV useless. Even it takes up 25,588K of memory (which it does on my PC).

Symantec AntiVirus is probably the service to disable to terminate this process though, if you really want to terminate it:

or just set it manual so it wont stop automatically on a reboot.

but your pc wont be protected anymore while downloading files and such

you will have to scan manually
