Very high RAM and CPU usage for Avast
« on: December 08, 2019, 12:00:01 AM »
Using Avast Free Antivirus 19.8.2393 (build 19.8.4793.544) on Windows 10 Home 1903, for at least a week I have been seeing >1 GB RAM for Avast all the time, and 20-50% CPU, spiking to 80% and sitting there sometimes when nothing apparent is happening.  I've repaired the app in the Settings -> Troubleshooting section, and rebooted my computer, but it rapidly returns to 1GB RAM used.
