Runaway memory usage
« on: May 14, 2014, 07:01:11 PM »
Doing a full scan with Avast will gobble up memory as it continues to scan. I wanted to do a full scan, then Avast would scan new files, which I thought would be the best protection. I got around the problem by creating 4 separate scans.  I have watched memory with the app, Memory Diag and File Cache continues to grow during the full scan and all 4 of the separate scans I created.

If you need any other info from me that could help solve this bug let me know.

Avast is running on an iMac 27-inch, 3.5 GHz i7, and 16 GB of ram.
