... about the fact that I still see a random number of AvastSvc copies in a suspended state (4 right now) and for which I submitted a dump...
No repair/reinstall does help in any way...

FWIW, there has been a so-called "Windows Cumulative Update" a couple days ago and, since then, the issue seems to have evaporated....
Maybe Avast vapor pressure was good enough but it looks like the suspended copies of AvastSvc can no longer be seen here....

Cheers

Phil

Well, it looks like I may have come to conclusions a bit too quickly...
Suspended copies show up again...

Now, if it may help in this debate, I did not completely wait for the boot process to complete today before checking : I plugged in an external drive before the end of the boot process and now I see 3 copies of which 2 are suspended..

Cheers

Some more interesting observations about this strange behavior:

1. Each time there is a system change and a reboot required, there is ONLY ONE copy of AvastSvc running just fine.
2. Whenever there is no change and, say, a regular shutdown/restart, those multiple copies show up, just like if the shutdown did not completely stop the service and left it in a weird state.

FWIW

Back to my original post:

Anybody home? Any progress made? Any hints from the Avast wizards?
Problem still ythere: today: 5 AvastSvc copies and "System Not protected" message when checking Avast...

Should I move away from Avast for another protection after all these years?

Thanks

Philippe
