He doesn't say which version of Avast he is using though probably 5.x
He also doesn't say how much RAM the computer has.
He also doesn't say if all the scans were done on the same computer or not.

By comparison I just did a Quick Scan with Firefox 4 open with 8 Tabs

I will now close Firefox clean the HDD and rescan


After closing Firefox and cleaning the HDD
