You can turn it on when you terminate AvastVboxSVC.exe process.

Just had this same issue. It was consuming 16GB of RAM! Slowed down my system majorly.

We have already fixed this bug -- as a workaround, you can turn off self protection (in UI, Troubleshooting page) and terminate this process from Task Manager.

In which version was this bug fixed?
I still have this problem with 2015.10.2.2215.

I have the same problem, task manager didn't show the memory usage, but resource monitor showed that AvastVBoxSVC.exe was using over 4GB of RAM.

I'm trying to disable the Avast self-defence module to see if it's causing my PC to slow down but, after restarting, it's running again and, if I end the process, it just reappears.

The self defense module has nothing to do with slowing down your PC. It makes sure that Malware can't shut down your protection to infect your system.
