Hi craig

I am on 7.01426, and I can't log in to my internet bank any more with any of my browsers sandboxed.

If you have a paid version, why aren't you using the Safe Zone for banking? I personally never sandbox my regular browsers because I see no need to with the other built in protections both they and Avast offer.

:( I had no problem downloading the new file, installed fine all seemed to be happy.  I then attempted to use my computer and it would boot up, then start to slow way down and then freeze because of over usage of resources.  Uninstall avast and it runs fine, though it is without protection.  Ideas?  Avast did update the same day that Windows sent out 40 plus security fixes, maybe Windows removed or moved a file you all "anchor" to?

I suggest an installation from scratch:

1. Download the latest version of avast! Uninstall Utility and save it.
2. Download the latest avast! version and save it.
3. (Optional) If you want, save your avast! settings for later restoration (Settings > Maintenance > Back up).
4. Uninstall avast from Control Panel (if possible). If, for any reason, you can't run it, try booting in Safe Mode and doing it from there. Anyway, boot after that.
5. Run the avast! Uninstall Utility saved on 1 in Safe Mode. Boot after you've run it. Repeat this for any major avast! version you have ever installed/upgraded in your computer.
6. Install avast! using the setup saved on 2. Boot.
7. Register your free copy or add the license key for Pro. Or even upgrade your key from old versions.
8. Check and post the results. If, for any reason, you did not solve, try doing the step 3 in Safe Mode anyway.

Dear Forum Guys!

I don't know am I using the right topic or not but I have the following problem.

AvastSVC.exe kills my CPU. The usage is always almost 100%.

I have XP SP3 and avast internet security 7.0.1426.
I have Sygate Personal Firewall version 5.6 build 2808.
It happens since the last 2-3 weeks. I did not install or change anything on the system. Just update avast automatically.

I hope you have the solution.
Thank you in advance!
Regards,
Chris

I don't know much about Sygate firewall, but, isn't it blocking the correct function of avast?
Disabling it for a while, would it help?

I'm using Sygate Persona Firewall v5.6 build 2808 and Avast Free 7.0.1426 on WinXP Pro SP3.  With this combination, I'm not having the issue with high CPU utilization.  Do you have installed (even if disabled) other security software?  Any torrent downloading??

Washed, rinsed and repeated but it did not change the problem.  Anything else I can try?  :(

1. Download the latest version of avast! Uninstall Utility and save it.
