[RESOLVED] com.avast.daemon crashing every 10 seconds on MAC
« on: August 09, 2020, 04:46:17 PM »
Similar to Aharris2 report - but I have only the basic avast installed - no trial extras have been enabled by me.

Macbook, mid2012 13" i7 8Gb, with the latest OS Patch 10.14.6, running AVAST 14.5 free basic no extras,  is generating repeated crash reports every 10 seconds.
What is AVAST up to ?

OK tried a reboot - no change
Uninstalled - rebooted - reinstalled - no change still eating  processor and heating the machine up on a hot day.

found some more errors...

This issue should be fixed now. Please make sure that you have the latest VPS (virus definitions) - Avast tray icon (or app menu) and "Check for updates".

We are truly sorry for the inconvenience caused by this issue. Thank you for helping us with the resolution! Your posts, logs and support packages allowed us to find, isolate and fix the issue within hours.

I can confirm that after a manual check for updates - crash reporter has stopped cycling and my fan has stopped screaming at me !
Thank you for your quick response.
