Is this the same as the free Avast Premium Security trial I got with my laptop?  It's about to expire and I"m having a hell of a time finding out what it's going to cost me when it does.  Why isn't there a simple email on the Avast site or a chat option to answer simple questions?  I think I'm going to cancel just because of the difficulty of getting simple questions answered.
What is your question? Same as what?
Main: Win10 Pro 21H2 64bit / Core i5-7400 3.0GHz / 16GB RAM / Avast 21 Premium Beta(Icarus) / Comodo Firewall (testing again)
Mobile: Win10 Pro 21H1 64bit / Core i5-3340M 2.7GHz / 8GB RAM / Avast 21 Free / Windows Firewall Control

After updating to the latest version Avast service keeps spiking and bottleneck my cpu.

As soon as i start a new program, open a new tab in my browser, if i refresh a page in my browser, even opening avast itself takess ages etc.
So i can barely use my computer without lag, it takes me probably 10+ sec just to load a website or open a program/game.
As im writing this for no reason avast service just spiked to 90% cpu usage.

If any1 know a fix for this or something like that i would like to get an answer asap.

UPGRADING TO Avast 20.4.2410  broke my connection to the network and to internet. I found that the culprit is FIREWALL. It doesnt have to be disabled completely . In my case in SYSTEM RULES I found that "Allow Windows File and Printer Sharing" was set up as NOT CONFIGURED by the latest update. I put ENABLE and everything started working again. I think that is a software bug that must be fixed by AVAST.

Re: NEW Avast Version 20.4 (June 2020)---Adobe Issue
« Reply #35 on: June 09, 2020, 10:33:42 PM »
The new version downloaded, and not I can not open, nor does my system recognize and PDF files. I can delete Adobe Reader DC and I can open the PDF through Chrome. These programs have worked together for me for years with no issue until the latest download. I can't even open Adobe Reader itself. I added it to exceptions and made sure it isn't blocked? Any ideas out there?

Hello. You have imposed sanctions on Iran and your company's antivirus will not be updated in Iran

Since Avast updated I can no longer even start any MS Office 2013 program.  Windows just says it can't find the file even if I go to the directory and click on the executable.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled MS Office 2013 again but the behaviour persists and I can't get to my mails.  It's really frustrating how when Avast glitches it majorly impacts my computer usage.  Checking in the virus chest MS Office isn't listed - so how to I fix this - Uninstall Avast and try again (painful as all my passwords are in my mail account and I have lost operation of MS Outlook now!

Please don't change the Topic Titles, it isn't your topic, otherwise create your own new topic.

As for your question please give more details on what you are experiencing, e.g. how did it kill it:
Are you getting any error messages, a screenshot could help us help you ?
What avast program are you using Avast Free, Avast Premium, etc. ?
Do you have any other avast programs installed and have you run any scans etc. ?
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 21.9.2494 (build 21.9.6698.703) UI 1.0.672/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

You guys have done something in the registry that blocks all Office 365 apps and Adobe Reader! This is awful. Will the Uninstall work?

You put something in the Debugger Key under each application in the registry.
