Numerous Avast Background Processes [Avast One Family]
« on: November 16, 2023, 05:10:06 AM »

I am curious to know if there are any steps to remove/disable the amount of Background Processes that Avast One uses. More specifically, the "Avast Software Analyzer" and "Avast VPN" are running constantly even though I dont use the VPN feature (I have NordVPN) and I don't use the software monitor features either. (product specs down below).

In my task manager I have noticed that Avast's software features are currently responsible for 7 of the top 11 Background Processes running on my PC and consuming about 480mb of RAM (RAM usage is about 16%). I have since updated my software and it did clear some of the usage but not by much.

As mentioned I already use another VPN service and don't really understand what the "Avast Software Analyzer" is.
