Avast Emergency Updater
« on: June 22, 2016, 02:30:11 AM »
I understand the Emergency Updater runs at startup, which is fine, it usually runs for a bit and shuts down.

My problem is that it's running all the time now.  I've never seen it in my task Manager after boot up, but now it's there all the time.  Even though it's not using up a lot of resources, I don't understand why it's there at all.  I shut it down only to have it reappear a few minutes later.

This is getting annoying.

Any idea why it's running all the time now?

Perform a repair of avast and check if the problem is solved.
If not, perform a clean installation of the latest avast version.
