[SOLVED] Avast randomly start analysing
« on: October 13, 2023, 12:22:23 AM »
Hi all,

I have the free Avast on Win-8.1.

Every hour or so, Avast start analysing for some time then stop.

I uninstalled with avastclear.exe, reboot, reinstalled, reconfigured, and reboot.

Same problem.

Any help appreciated.

Hi all,

It looks like it is always after an update of the data base.

Hi all,

After an update of TOR:

The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem.

I rebooted Win-8.1 and same problem with TOR

Hi All,

[Solved]  :)

It is the Network Inspector causing the problems.

I disabled Network Inspector and no more problems since 2 days..

Thanks for the update/confirmation.

Strange I have the Network Shield enabled, but I don't use TOR
