I also have been having this 100% CPU load problem with avast. I was using Avast home free version and was experiencing the problem but was not sure what was going on, yesterday I upgraded to the internet security version of Avast 5 and now the problem is even worse. I have a cor2duo 2.4 with 4 gig of memory, plenty of HS space etc. I really notice it when I have Agent news reader running downloading bodies. Doing anything else on the computer is pretty useless. So I tried turning off shields for 10 minutes and then I couldn't access  Avast anylonger, also my mail program no longer could access my mail and the news reader could no longer connect with any server. I could NOT open avast in order to get it going again, thus I had to resort to a reboot.

I'm not a happy camper now with this issue. Anyone else notice this HIGH CPU consumption?

HELP!!!!

AvastSvc.DMP   195MB  :(

can you compress it and upload it to ftp: //ftp.avast.com/incoming/ ?

would be fine if you also gave more precisions here, operating system, other security software etc...when the CPU load happens...crashes...
