d00zah, just a thank you for the workaround you posted yesterday in another thread to solve this issue.
I had an important task to deliver and you saved my bacon.  ;)
Cheers!
Glad to help. Thanks for choosing Avast (& MWB).

technical agnostic  ;)

If I disable Real Site, enable MB WebProterction and then enable Real Site again, everything works well.

As soon as it was suggested. In my case, no MWB component failed to start, tho. Just a slow creep to non-responsive PC. After satisfying myself that disabling 'Real Site' worked, I toggled it back on to see if it would now work... same result.

Good Afternoon,

I'm fortunate to have found this thread.  I was about to spend $40 for  my husband to buy diagnostics software as I'd exhausted  my windows knowledge on why his machine was so slow.  I find this afternoon now my pc was auto updated to the latest program not by my choosing and my pc slow as molasses.  While I found the setting to let it be at my discretion in the future, I'm not happy that was done to begin with.

I don't intend to uninstall MB as no one program will find everything, no matter how good it is. My one question though is what are the implications of turning off the real site option while we wait for a fix?  Thank you in advance for your time.

Minimal risk, I imagine, since it will be temporary. MWB is slow-rolling a new component pkg. 'which MAY address' the issue. I am currently testing & will report back when I'm certain, one way or t'other.

No joy. Even as I typed that response, the explorer process was wedged. Back to waiting.

Doozah,

Thank you very much for the quick reply :D.   It took some time for me to be able to turn off the real site option, even going into safe mode with networking.   I found this thread over on the MB site that stated there was an update that fixes their issue.  I turned off real site on Avast, rebooted, then was able to update MB to latest version 1.0.441, rebooted and turned  real site on Avast back on.  I'm able to access my pc and the internet but will monitor today as I see a bit of hesitation but just an annoyance and not crippling.

For those on MB, recommend you try what I did and see if that helps any.  I'll monitor my pc for the remainder of the day and report back if I'm really fixed-thank you again all ;D

Figures not 10 mins after I post this, my PC was back to wanting to be a boat anchor.  Back to turning real site off and giving MB a piece of my mind.   Thanks

And here i was doing a complete image restore and wandering why the moment Avast updated it was all over red rover. I have just turned off the real site feature hoping that yields some positive results.

Am not very happy though, over the past few days i have uninstalled numerous programs hoping for postive results.

PS: This new Do not Disturb mode while in game is maddening, i have tried disabling it for each game and i find it re enabled after i play a particular game, i also get kicked from games or they lock up since this last update.  Is there anyay of permanently disabling this feature ?

FYI Update from the referenced MBAM thread:

"We have been working closely with Avast on this problem. They have discovered an issue with their driver implementation and are working on getting a fix released. They were not able to provide specific timing for this update yet."

I've already reported this to Avast and asked for some clarification and a time frame.
