Speed up for Android Studio Startup and Emulator

Android Studio can be a little slow After a while using Android Studio gets painful at startup time waiting for the IDE user interface to load, then waiting for the Android Emulator.
Found that with a few quick exclusions in antivirus speed is significantly improved. I'm sure there are a few who will disagree with these changes but the trade off between security and performance is well worth it in my case.
Exclude the following items in Antivirus:  C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\plugins\android\libC:\Users\<username>\.AndroidStudio2.2\system\cachesC:\Users\<username>\.AndroidStudio2.2\system\indexC:\Users\<username>\.gradleqmenu-system-i386.exe
