Yes, we have a winner.

In AVG 8 I've just tried unchecking "Always scan files without 
extensions" in the Advanced settings under Resident Shield, before 
running VirtualRPC-SE after a reboot. Artworks2 then loaded blindingly 

Quitting VirtualRPC and rechecking the setting in AVG led to the usual 
pause in loading AW2. I guess AVG is 'intelligent' enough not to 
examine the same file twice in a certain period.

Mind you, I wonder how useful that AVG setting is on the PC side and 
whether it can safely be left unchecked. It will obviously degrade 
performance in loading almost any file while running VirtualRPC-SE.

For me, the catch was that almost the first thing I did when my new PC 
arrived was to upgrade to AVG 8, so I had no previous performance to 
compare with on this machine.
