Bob, that's what i'd expect. Out of curiosity, what CPU usage is AvastSVC.exe showing with the Avast firewall on?
No clue since it's not a system I currently have access to. Will not use it again till Mon.

Avast runs great with it's firewall turned off. I'm told they will refund the money i spent to upgrade to the Internet Security version. I have uninstalled Avast IS and re-installed the free version of Avast. I am running it with the Windows firewall and all is good!

If others are having the same problem i was, you may want to consider doing the same.

I'm still keeping avast! IS. I'm not using the firewall at the moment and hope
they fix the apparent memory usage problem soon.
