Avast one essential locks up my mouse
« on: October 25, 2021, 09:23:22 PM »
I'm not seeing any alerts, but since I installed (what I assumed was) avast free
I'm getting tones, then my mouse locks up for a second, then tones and my mouse is freed up.
As I do audio recording on this machine, I simply cannot have this machine pegged like this.
I went to see if I could silence avast one essential (hoping that would do it) but all the help files are for the older versions of avast.

Can somebody help?

Please go to  Account>Settings>Notifications - you should be able to disable sounds and enable silent mode.
Concerning the mouse locking, could you try a different mouse and see if you have the same issue?
