Avast 8 Bugs on Mavericks
« on: November 06, 2013, 01:34:24 PM »
Hey there I posted on another post but received no reply whether the issue is being looked into,

Avast on Mavericks seems to be having issue

1. initial error occur after mavericks finish installing( could not access preference pane)
2. fix preference access via accessing incompatible software folder and opening it. (However there are two preference pane now in system preference) is it constantly running? its not visible so shouldn't app nap be enabled?
4. & web rep seems to auto install by itself eventho previous set up before upgrading mavericks for web rep was not installed.

p.s: running avast on latest build

please do look into this issue especially memory/cpu usage of avast on mavericks

2. You can remove one them, right click on it, remove.
3. NOT A BUG: I don't know why are you expecting the service process of an anti-virus that has to be ready to scan files as they are accessed to enable app nap? App Nap is not only related to apps not being visible, and avast helper is actually a service, that has no visible front-end. The Avast window, when it's open, is another process, also, as a service it should always be in a running state, app nap only applies to apps that can be frozen, finally, the developer can decide if they allow OS X to apply App Nap or not, again, and again an Anti-Virus should not be frozen.
4. NOT A BUG: This is actually intended, although I don't agree with it.
