Avast kicks my disk usage to 100%
« on: September 19, 2019, 12:25:23 AM »
100% disk usage is freezing my PC frequently -once every 2 days. 
Task manager shows Avast Service in particular and a few other Avast services putting disk usage to 100%.

I was in a biz meeting a week ago and had to hard reboot with the power key as nothing would close/work.

I have an Avast Premier subscription.
Windows 8.1 64 bit v6.3 build 9600

Is this forum supported by Avast at all?   
If I can't solve it -and I'm reading its pretty common - I'll have to drop Premium.

ps that captcha code is a PITA.

Hi,

To clarify.
Did you notice this issue with Avast Premier or after upgrading to Avast Premium(if you did indeed upgrade)?
Have you tried to repair the application? https://support.avast.com/en-ww/article/Repair-Antivirus

Thank you
