What version and build number of avast are you using  ?
I ask because Avast Pro was discontinued some time ago, now the paid versions of Avast are, Avast Premium Security and Avast Ultimate.

What were you doing on your computer at the time of this very high CPU from Avast ?

What other security based software do you have installed ?
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 23.4.6062 (build 23.4.8118.762) UI 1.0.762/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security
