« on: May 31, 2020, 12:52:12 AM »
HI, Avast I am Gamer I do it for fun not competitive. I being having heck time trying to Game since avast no longer plays nice with Games i added to applications to leave alone. I have to turn off avast to be able game in peace if not it tries to stop from running properly & in Task manager you can see cpu being bog down to 100% usage were nothing in pc responds at all. Only way i can play like mention before is turn off avast protection. Just letting you know in case this help others understand why. This became a problem after last update for what i notice. thanks for reading

Hi, the old Game Mode has been replaced by DND Mode a while ago.
