Hello guys,

ever since I installed the last update, I also had the "Antivirus engine server" running, up until yesterday, but since today it's no longer showing up in Task Manager, any idea why?

Its file (aswEngSrv.exe) is still present in my Avast folder, but now I only have 3 instead of 4 Avast programs running:

Avast Behavior Shield (= aswidsagent.exe)
Avast Free Antivirus (= AvastUI.exe)
Avast Service (AvastSvc.exe)

A computer restart didn't change anything. Was the function disabled for some reason or is my Avast installation broken?

I believe there was a report (in the forums) of high CPU usage in the aswEngSrv.exe agent/service whilst this is investigated looks like they have disabled it.

EDIT: wrong file name posted.

No problem.

I updated the quoted post the file name was wrong, it should have been aswEngSrv.exe.

That said, the aswEngSrv.exe Antivirus Engine Server process is still running on my win10 laptop with avast! free 19.4.2374 installed.  I don't know if that is because I haven't done a restart on a long time, I just leave it in standby most of the time.

Hi, that might be the reason, it's still gone here.

PS: I adjusted my reply.

I can confirm. It's not running. Hopefully Mon. we'll get an answer. :)

I have just done a restart and I too can confirm that the aswEngSrv.exe Antivirus Engine Server process is no longer running on my win10 laptop with avast! free 19.4.2374 installed.

Just the 3 mentioned by Weiku:
Avast Behavior Shield (= aswidsagent.exe)
Avast Free Antivirus (= AvastUI.exe)
Avast Service (AvastSvc.exe)

The aswEngSrv.exe file remains in the Avast program folder.

Hi,
there were several reports about high memory usage by aswengsrv + we found that in same cases aswengsrv and cybercapture dont cooperate as we expected. Till we fix these issues we decided  to  disable aswengsrv service.

Strange, it's still gone here. Did you reboot the system lately..?
