I don't know where your getting your facts from but, these are the Memory Requrements for each of the Avast services:
ashDisp.exe      2,344K
ashUpdSv.exe      508k
ashServ.exe      9,084K
ashMaiSv.exe     3,036k

Now if you add all 4 together, it's about 15,000K which isn't any where near the 40Meg your quoting.
Maybe you where thinking about a different AV program??? ;D

I got my infos from antivirus roundup reviews on schadentech's website..  

So what will be a better thing to do if I want to disable avast to run at startup and just use avast for scanning once in a while? Do I have to also set the services entry to manual or just disable only the startup entry (msconfig startup entry only) and leave the services entries?

and is the resident scanner of avast a separate entity with the main of avast?

Well now you have it directly from an avast! user and a proud avast Pro user.
Sorry but I can't help you in dissecting a perfectly good AV program. Instead of crippling avast, why not just use an online scanner as a backup. ???

Services to manual and without startup entries.

What do you call 'main' of avast?

I mean the scanner when you open the main avast appplication, not the background scanner...

Thanks for the replies! :)
