AvastSvc.exe constant CPU usage despite doing nothing
« on: April 11, 2018, 10:57:48 PM »
Hi, please someone report this problem for me

I'm currently using avast free although I do have an active license for the Internet security version

I just reinstalled my Windows and cleanly installed Avast and immediately performed a repair

I was watching football livestream via acestream. I noticed a constant CPU usage ranging from 0.3% to 1% of total CPU usage. I disabled all shields in settings but the CPU didn't drop to 0%

I stopped watching the livestream and my total CPU usage 0% but AvastSvc.exe was still using 0.3-1% of CPU where it was supposed to be 0%
I can't create a dump file of AvastSvc.exe although I tried to disable the self-defense

this is the screenshot while I was watching football and disabled all shields

I PERFORMED A REPAIR AND IT DIDN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM!!!

this is the screenshot when everything was in idle. Disabling all the shields didn't not change the result

Avast free 18.3.2333
Other security software: Comodo Firewall, exclusion for avast made
AV before avast: kaspersky free, completely uninstalled using uninstaller and manual removal
