If you see any Spam - And trust me, we get a lot - Please report it! Just my opinion based off my experience. Number of Processes: 2 Processes Monitored: gziface. In the scan result window you will get a list of currently running scans, including the screensaver scan if it is the culprit , with a stop button. Behavior Shield tracks behavior of applications and kills them if behavior looks malicious or suspicious. Note: Windows automatically creates a restore point when you install desktop apps and new Windows updates, if the last restore point is older than 7 days. This surprised me because according to the latest , it shows that Avast Antivirus is one of the lightest solutions out there.
Do you think my experience is a good thing? Probalby my fans are not efficient as they used to. Only in the last 3 or 4 years have most off the shelf computers come with that amount of memory. In this regard I'm very happy with Avast's minimal installation, long-time user, just not sure about this new feature. Coding is of course a key factor to that extent. Have you considered they alternatives to avast? Though I know each person cause may be different, I hope this helps someone. Knock on wood that it stays there.
I suggest an installation from scratch: 1. I had to uninstall Comodo because the system lags got to be too much of a problem to handle. I then submitted a support ticker to Avast which as usual, took almost 2 weeks to be answered. Reduced memory usage In Emsisoft Anti-Malware and Emsisoft Internet Security, you have full control over that feature. I have been testing many apps and games with all of them showing a significant slow down with Enable hardware-assisted virtualization turned on.

Bitdefender was never installed on the machine by itself. Relatively speaking relative to the speed, number of cores and ram size of the computer , Avast was the best one fastest , when I last investigated virus checkers, quite some time ago. Latest Avast introduced Behavior Shield, which I understand constantly scans background processes. Now my machine is swapping like crazy, performance sucks, etc.
I do not recommend using Software Updater, as far as I remember, end-user has no control over what is updated and what is not updated. Have to add that this boot time is not entirely accurate as it takes longer than that until I can actually use the computer. Avast may not be a memory hog but most surely a system bog. This standard result is effectiveness of protection but leaves out system hog reports. The only time that Avast slows down my computer is when first booting up as it checks for updates which is fine. Unlike launching step for 'System Configuration', options and steps to Clean Boot are same for Windows 10.
So, load up Behavior Shield, because it's one hell of a protection feature against unknown malware. Killing Firefox causes Norton memory to go back down after a while. You can see it using some skydrive upload with word or just running quite a few programs and surfing on the web. No events are logged with the shields. This is not the case for the torrent, it seems to handle the situation better.
Seems excessive when not running a scan Seems excessive when not running a scan Okay thank you for the response. What probably happening is avast is scanning files as you accessthem and it's picking that up. I checked it and it doesn't seem to be doing anything at all, at least as far as scans go. Repeat this for any major avast! Usually that has to change dinamically to accomodate processes. It would have been nice to go a little deeper in the tests.
Why use any of this useless crap at all? As I mentioned earlier, the problem might be with the corrupted User Profile or drivers. I gave up on Norton and McAfee because they were memory hogs, hard to use and not getting along with software. KevTech - I lowered the font size to 12. We have already implemented nested hypervisor support, which solves this issue completely but it is not yet ready to release. I'm afraid the support is wrong in this case. Hi, I have the same problem, on a brand new installation well, two days since I reformatted the hard disk.
