** Unusual Disk Usage by Avast **
« on: March 01, 2023, 02:36:30 PM »
hi,

There is big issue with Avast ...... Disk usage is impressive !!!!!

Avast uses 100% of HDD and SSD for a long time everytime Avast Service is launched (it's like if it scans every file in installation folder) and hundreds of files are read !!!

Every time i launch avast ... it reads hundreds of files (files that don't have any link with the functioning of avast).

You can test it easily ... launch "resource monitor" and enjoy the "AvastSVC.exe" activity !!!!

So if you have HDD so you can add 1 or 2 minutes to windows start to be operational.

With HDD Avast Launch takes more time than All Windows Services to Start ... it's amazing :D

This happens Even when all shields are disabled.

Avast was a very light software .... now it is becoming a heavy software like Kaspersky and others :(
