Double AvastUI.exe running since update to 2015.10.2.2214.
« on: March 03, 2015, 12:30:16 AM »
I have two instances of AvastUI.exe running ever since updating to the newest version of Avast, I'm on Windows 7 64-bit and I've done a full uninstall and a clean install and still the issue persists, I just want to know if this normal in the new version or not.

This according to an explanation by one of the avast team is correct - I believe it related to the avastUI undertaking multiple tasks so now it is split between the two running processes.

It seems to be normal, although I heard on XP, you only have one.

There is only one avastUI.exe running in XP OS.

Later OSes Win7 or later I believe have two running in task manager.

I don't like multi process "thing". That is one of the reasons why I avoid Chromium based browsers.
Option to use one AvastUI.exe process would be nice.
