Avast using a LOT of CPU

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey,

So I tried to play some Exteel a few minutes ago and my computer started to slow down, a LOT. I checked my task manager and apparently Avast's web scanner is taking up ~50% of my CPU. Everything seems to be going really slow, and I've tried to disable ever provider Avast has, but to no avail.

I've checked google, with no results. Some people have mentioned having the problem, but I've found no fixes.

Pic below....



What's goin' on?

Nope, my laptop has been on for the past few weeks and it hasn't had any problems. It just started happening now.

It jumps up to 75%...and I can barely use my computer. It's NEVER done this before. I'm tempted to uninstall the damn thing.

Being bored out of my mind I went on a search and rescue mission to try and help ya. Are you running the latest 4.8.1229 version? They just came out with it in the past few days. I found out if this is some sort of glitch that doesen't happen all the time.. And a simple restart fixes it for awhile.

I would manually update to that version and restart and go from there, hope this helps.

Im not sure if this is the problem or not but does it have proper access to the Internet?

Quote:
For it to work correctly you must allow this access in the Personal Firewall configuration. Web Shield needs the same access rights as your browser - especially outgoing connection to the TCP port 80. If your firewall protects local communication you must also grant Web Shield process (ashWebSv.exe / aswWebSv.exe) the right to act as a server and accept incoming connection on port 12080.

I found this post when researching the same problem. Well I use avast and up to now no problems. But just recently i noticed my cpu running like i was moviing large files or doing a pc scan.
I went to Eset and use their online scanner and Eset found this.
sers\samsun\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Low\Content.IE5\UQ49EPYP\download[1].html HTML/ScrInject.B.Gen virus deleted - quarantined

Nice huh. I have yet to let samsung know.
Afterwards Pc is running normal.

May need to consider another antivirus if this happens again.

peace!
