Avast 2015 Constantly Scanning
« on: October 27, 2014, 07:24:47 PM »
After updating to Avast 2015, I noticed that it was constantly scanning (as indicated by the spinning icon in the systray). I found the problem to be the ChiconyOSDService. I determined this by stopping noncritical processes one-by-one with the Windows task manager. I stopped the service and optioned it to start manually--and this stopped the constant scanning.

It seems that you can safely disable the process without causing a problem.
