Hi,

I think I always remember to see only 3 services prior to 19.6. Now I am seeing 4, any particular reason? Please see attached. I am using Avast AV Free if it helps.

On Windows 10 pro 64bit 1903 latest

Yes, the Antivirus engine server aswEngSrv.exe is back after a trial (not everyone will have been involved in that) and withdrawal for further improvement.

See this topic and this post in particular https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=228020.msg1510601#msg1510601.

Ah! Thanks David for the clarification. Sorry, my bad. I missed that post.

You're welcome.

It would seem that's the way Avast wants to go (data collecting), so you aren't going to get a reasonable answer to that ("to help us improve the product").
Anyway new issue, right clicking explorer scans does not bring up results after the first scan.

Not something I can confirm. Confirmation and information came up after the right click explorer scan.

Clarification
I misunderstood the original reply and can confirm the problem reported by top_stuff.
The first scan works as expected. any additional scans do not show up. I can see the animation of the sys tray icon
but, no popup ever shows to let you know that the scan has completed, etc.

In my understanding, AvBugReport sends possible bug-related information, such as crash dumps.
Overseer constantly checks and keeps sanity of Avast installation and maybe sends some operational information, such as software versions.

They have different functionalities.
Main: Win10 Pro 1903 64bit / Core i5-7400 3.0GHz / 8GB RAM / Avast 19 Premier Beta / Comodo Firewall 12
Mobile: Win10 Pro 1803 32bit, Vista SP2 32bit / Core 2 Duo SU9300 1.2GHz / 4GB RAM / Avast 19 Free / Windows Firewall Control
Phone: Android 2.3.4, 4.2.2 / Avast Mobile Security / Avast Anti-Theft

Avast の設定について解説しています。よろしければご覧ください。

Thanks, looking good. :)

Edit: The 'firewall network profile' pop-up bug has been resolved here on my system.
Interestingly, the pop -up "did" return after 1st. reboot initiated by the install.
A "2nd." reboot cleared the issue.
I have come to always reboot a 'second' time as it often clears up glitches.

Same for me, though I also manually set all saved networks to private before doing a second restart, after which I got the "Network (xxxx) detected and automatically set to Private" pop-up. All the other saved networks were still set to private.

Good news everyone!
New AV version 19.6.2383 has just been released.
 
What's NEW:

  • A smarter Smart Scan - We've redesigned our Smart Scan to be better than ever, and you can now even schedule it
  • Improved performance - We've reduced the amount of disk and CPU usage our antivirus needs
  • Improved stability - We've unified some headers across the app for greater stability
  • A cleaner goodbye - If you ever uninstall us (gasp!), we now do a better job of removing all our files
  • Bug stomping - Sensitive Data Shield scans no longer finish prematurely, and Mail Shield no longer blocks connections if it can't connect to an IPv6 address
  • Game on! - We're now more compatible with games that use anti-cheating measures (e.g., League of Legends)

<snip>
Just installed 19.6 over-the-top using the full offline installer and all is good except the Bug Stomp fix to Sensitive Data Shield now commands 100% of CPU when SDS is run; can't even bring up Ctrl+Shift+Esc for Task Manager to view usage.  GUI does show progress but it is stuck and runs sporadically with % only showing movement, jumping some 10-12% at a time.  When Cancel is clicked, SDS automatically reports as finished; doesn't matter what the scan progress is reported as.  Worked fine in 19.5 all last month.

Otherwise [fine], thanks Benko.

Hi, just tested it and can partly confirm the issue, it also takes 100% CPU here.
However, I can still open TM and other apps and the scan did finish in due course.

Hi,

I can also confirm like Asyn, parcially Sensitive scan takes 100% of CPU but i can do everything else, like open TM, others programs and the scan finishes without problems.

That's good news ... will update and run a double boot  :P
