Avast Service and high CPU
« on: June 29, 2022, 01:32:39 PM »
I have the latest version of Avast Premium Security and I have a problem with Avast Service using a lot of CPU. I already tried a few solutions but every time I open a few tabs Avast service use more than 50% of CPU slowing my PC a lot. Is it a normal thing and if not what I can do to fix it? Thanks .

I run Windows 10 Home and Avast Premium Security. Up to the end of June my CPU usage was showing at/near 100%, with Software Analyzer, Windows Explorer and several system tasks like scheduler contributing. Right clicking the Avast ball -> Update and a rather slow Restart gave me version 22.6.6022 (build 22.6.7355.731), and the problem has disappeared.

Best regards, Roger N.
