That is the main avast process responsible for all resident scanning activity, etc. so it will be using CPU, but that amount is unusually high.

Are you running any processes or downloading anything in the background, P2P, etc. ?

What other security based software do you have installed ?
Have (or did) you another Anti-Virus installed in this system, if so what was it and how did you get rid of it ?
