What's new between version 20.7.5568.591 and version 20.7.5568.595?

My version is presently 20.7.5568.596 so I guess that minor updates, i.e. 591->595->596, are slid in automatically.

Please do not post the same problem twice. It makes offering help harder and wastes lots of time for those trying to help.

Hello,
I suggest adding the "quick auto scan" function also included in the USB flash drive scan function, obviously the user can choose whether to activate it or not by choosing the one on request.
So when you insert a USB drive, it will be scanned quickly and automatically in the background, without any warning and analysis screens, and will only pop up if a dangerous file is detected.

What do you think about it?hink about it?  :) ;)

@adrianmark
Can you explain a bit more. What message are you seeing.
If you add some screenshots, they may also help illustrate your situation much better.

It would also help to know what version of Avast you are using Free? Paid?

Recently I updated Avast Premium, since yesterday I suffer form a huge memory leak, I can't work longer than between half an hour and an hour, depending which programs I use. What to do, for I need it for my office.

Update: my pc now crashes within 5 minutes, CPU is 100% from the start and memory usage runs up like crazy!This is not what I pay for!!

1. Download Avast Premium Security: https://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_premium_security_setup_offline.exe
2. Follow instructions: https://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility (Run this tool for all prior installed Avast versions..!!)
3. Reinstall Avast with the downloaded installer from point 1.
4. Reboot.

hello, not sure what is happening with my avast but after the update, the Avast Service is continually running taking 30% of CPU nonstop. 3 reboots have solved nothing, neither has a full shutdown. why is this happening?? How do I fix this?
-> https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=237567.0

I updated my Windows 10 PC to Avast 20.7.2425 (build 20.7.5568.598) last night.
This morning on reboot, Avast took over the whole PC! Twice, the screen froze and
I had to crash and restart. The CPU usage is, as stated by others, insane: about
25% *each* for Avast service and Avast firewall service. The disk was grinding away
so much  that no read/write operations by applications were possible.

I came across some articles about repairing Avast and I tried that. It appears to
have solved the disk issue (that is why I am able to type this!), but the high CPU
usage is still an issue. There are 5 Avast Antivirus instances in the Task Manager.
Power usage is very high, too. For the first time in the two years that I have had
this machine, I hear the fan running. I have 16 GB of RAM. Memory usage is also
weird: the Task Manager says I am using 97% of memory.

I went to the suggested page (https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=237567.0),
but I confused by the very first instruction: should I download or not? As I have
the "newest" installation of Avast, how do get a log?

I did try to click on the link in this page to download (on Firefox) and I get is the
XML text -- no download.

Incidentally, in the time I took to type this up, the screen froze twice for about 10
seconds.

Need help to fix this. Would a complete uninstall and reinstall help? How can I
submit a log? I have already submitted feedback via the Avast GUI.

Thanks.

PS: Just as I was pre-viewing the above, the disk activity went back to 100%and the
machine froze. I had to crash it again. This time, I uninstalled Avast on reboot. Everything
is normal again:
CPU: 3%
Disk: 1%
Memory: 22%

Clearly Avast  20.7.2425 (build 20.7.5568.598) has a problem. Is there a fix
in the works?

If Repair doesn't fix the problem, try the following:
If your Avast settings are not the default settings and you want them restored after the Clean Install, follow this before removing Avast.

upon installing this update my premium security will open up randomly

I've completely removed it using the tool then reinstalled it and the problem still persists.
