100% disk usage.
« on: May 01, 2021, 03:54:11 PM »
Hello everyone!
Since 3/4 months my Avast Free Antivirus is doing something wrong. When I'm running every program/game on computer disk usage in Task Manager is reaching 100%. I was looking what is the source of problem and I found this is "Avast Antivirus" (Avast Tools) service everytime! I was looking for solution, but anything can't help me. I was trying to use Avast's repair tool to repair my Avast program, but it doesn't help. Is there anybody who can help?

I am having the same problem, always Avast Tools and it happens at least once an hour and can last anywhere from just a minute or two up to 15 minutes.  Very annoying.

Avast Free version 21.4.2464 (build 21.4.6266.670)
windows 10 currently up to date
