Multiple AvastUI.exe
« on: June 24, 2022, 04:19:16 PM »
Can someone tell me why I have 4 instances of AvastUI.exe running in my task manager in windows 7.  I am using Avast free version.

Thank you in advance

This is not unusual (multi-tasking, a little like your browser using multiple browser.exe) rather than use one which would slow things down.  However it could reduce after a while.  Even so look resources are being used (?).

I have 6 Avast Antivirus entries (when I checked) only 5 are AvastUI related, but just look at the resource use, negligible.  See attached image, click to expand.

That is what I was assuming but I just wanted to make sure lol.  As you stated my chrome & firefox have multiple instances as well.  Thank you for the information.
