Problems with the Internet because Avast 7?
« on: February 24, 2012, 07:01:24 PM »
Since my avast upgraded from 6 to 7 my Internet connection is used  90%  by "Avast Svc.exe"
The report is shown by Comodo Firewall ...
I disconnected the account avast, I stopped updating the cloud and still nothing .. even browsers (Firefox & Comodo Dragon) connects very hard .... considering that my average download speed is 1.4 MB / Sec

 why is this happening?

I have the same problem. I thought it's due to Cloud Services. Did you restart your computer after turning them off? 'Cause my laptop back to normal after turning them off and restart. But in my PC, it still happens...

Cheers...

I don't think Comodo's main traffic statistics is the best way to prove your theory but anyway... Do you have problems connecting to the internet? Machine running slower? Or are there any problems in fact other than the one where Comodo says avast is unsing 100% of internet flow?

Rares, check what is being scanned at that time.
avast! (service) just scan, don't use the bandwidth (the avastUI.exe can download remote content if you allow it to do so).

Of course, the cloud services use internet.
But, in Comodo statistics, what is 100% (100% of the full bandwidth 1.4MB/sec or 100% of the internet used at that time)?

100% of the internet used at that time.
Now wait to see, can my band internet is to blame.
I thought that might be the new avast version contain some small bugs (it is normal to the new version)
