@ homeru
Generally that is the reverse of what happens.

Was this your first installation of avast ?
If it was your first installation, have (or did) you another Anti-Virus installed in this system, if so what was it and how did you get rid of it ?

If it was an update to avast, what version did you have before and was it a clean install ?
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 23.4.6062 (build 23.4.8118.762) UI 1.0.762/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

How long have you been running this installation of Avast! ?   Under File System Shield/Expert Settings/Advanced there are settings for populating caches at the beginning to speed things up after a few sessions.

I know i had a problem with my PC dragging when Avast would do an automatic update at startup...I deactivated automatic update and now do my updates manually...which has led to my PC being usable much sooner...Board member DavidR also has another method that could help by delaying the Avast automatic update until more time has passed since startup.

Manual updating is not recommended for everyone because you can forget to do it and not be protected against the latest threats...

I know someone here can help you with this...Whatever the cause may turn out to be...because they helped me.

If it is across the board (and at startup) the delaying the auto update check won't help with that, which is why we are asking the other questions.

So I think we should wait for some feedback from homeru before diving in with suggestions.
