AVast Start up Process
« on: October 23, 2014, 11:42:23 PM »
Why is it that Avast seems to be the very last program to load on start up.  Should it not be the first?  Some programs are already accessing the internet before Avast is safeguarding it?

If you are basing this judgement on when the avast tray icon is displayed ?
That doesn't play a part in your systems security. It is there to allow you access to the user interface.

The main avast service/process avastSvc.exe is relatively quick on the scene, if you are quick and open task manager you will see it there and you may also see the avastUI.exe the user interface process before the tray icon appears.
