Hi,

Does anybody know how these "Programs slowing down your PC" are determined programatically, and how the "Slowdown severity" percentage is calculated?

Thanks,

Geoff

Windows 10 has startup impact under the Startup tab in Task Manager.  You can disable startups you do not want or need there.
Windows 10 Home 64-bit 21H2 Avast Premier Security version 22.3.6008 (build 21.3.7108.721) UI version 1.0.702.

Most programs are marked as Not Measured.  :(

Would it be possible for a developer or evangelist to describe how the "Slowdown severity" is calculated within Avast itself please?

Thanks,
