Avast memory usage
« on: December 20, 2013, 03:41:16 AM »
I've just updated to version 2014.9.0.2011.
Avast memory usage in idle time is around 35 MB, and peak memory usage is around 80 MB.
In previous versions the numbers were 2 (TWO) MB in idle and 50 MB max.
Also, Firefox now starts up with extra 10 MB.

What could be the cause?


Thank you.
