Very frustrating and annoying...
Disable the real time component of your antivirus (AVG).
Thank you Rumm...I found a "temporally disable AVG protection" feature in AVG's "advanced options" which shuts AVG down completely for 5, 10 or 15mins. The game starts normally with AVG off and is not effected when it comes back on during game play. It is a bit of a PITA to disable AVG every time I have to start the game but at least I can play.

The game itself seems fun, nope not the mind blowing graphics of Crysis but imo a decent FPS. I can only judge a game by if I want to keep pushing on and if I'm enjoying myself....So far, so good.
My system is in the siggy. 1920x1200, very high settings(I don't like the lighting in "extreme"), I have no performance issues, Crysis 2 runs very smooth. I tried the demo when I had an ATI HD5950 in this setup and it also ran well at the same settings.

Easier fix: add crysis2.exe to the AVG "exceptions list" found under the "advanced options". No more need mess with the AV every time the game is started....
