what is "avast remediation exe"?
« on: August 19, 2019, 12:29:37 AM »
Hi folks.

My Avast Internet Security was updated (new version 19.7.2388). And, after this, i can see a new process in my task manager. All the time.

So... by the title - what is it? Is it normal? Or it is some error? And (if error) how i can handle it?

Thanks.

Yep...
but they are old (mostly 2 years old)...
there is no direct answer...
And they all about old version of antivirus. But with old version i'm never saw this process, it appears only after update. And i do not know why.

Hi,
you speak about new version 19.7.2388
So, no need to go far, just look at the post-it topic about this version and more particularly the question of Pako7 (yesterday 18:58:36)

there is only a link:

https://www.file.net/process/wsc_proxy.exe.html

But...
1) Those site it's not Avast company.
2) Those texts, same - old (Even, if those info - it's true. And this service was in Avast before. Why it's appears only now? ).
3) There's nothing about AvastWscReporter (sub service for "avast remediation exe").
