Is the antivirus program responsible for all of the usage, or is it spread out among several programs causing the disk activity by competing against each other? Disk usage remained at 100% for several minutes, the only usage being System and Compressed memory which changed colour as the percentage changed. Theres a few things that can do this, first would of course be a virus, second is a rogue virus scanner process. Probably not, so then try Safe Mode with networking, or if you use WiFi then wifi. I have visited many forums and tried many fixes but have not cured the problem. Basically, this program has to frequently scan the files on a system for malware, runtime software installation and have a check on the files for tweaks.
So this issue has been ignored by Avast since at least back in 2016,heading on two years. This helps eliminate software conflicts that occur when you install a program or an update. Somebody correct if I'm incorrect, thanks! This will only remove few new features, all important Avast features will remain unaffected and the protection level of your machine will remain the same. Look at what is performing filesystem operations and what those operations are. Step — 2: From this Window, click on Update and Security. Which shields did you have enabled? Thank you for these solutions, I will try them out and let you know how it goes as soon as I finish some scans Also, I've never used Windows Defender or Firewall and they are both completely disabled.
If it were you would crash. Hi Kapil, Thank you for keeping us updated. Well, we are going to fix it because scanning is something that should happen once in a day or once a week. On the same file in Process Monitor this is what Avastsvc exe does; It starts with Query Name Information File, Set Basic Information File, Query Standard Information File, Query Stream Information File, File System Control, Close File. File, Web, Behavior, Email, etc Avast is very light on your system and what you're seeing is definitely not normal, and we'd like to get this resolved for you -- let us know! Anyhow as soon as I killed TeamViewer, AvastSvc.
Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. This now seems to point out a few specific processes Superfetch? I uninstalled Avast Anti virus too. If they do, you should permanently disable Windows Search as described below. So would you really trust an anti-virus that doesn't care at all,i wouldn't. If you can see storahci. I am a learner and struggling with what seems to be a common problem, the fact that in the Task manager Disk usage leaps up to 100%, and stays there for minutes with nothing in the column showing above 0.
Not an Avast user nor defending it per se. I am noticing this lagging issue since day1 of the laptop bought. Check to see if your disk usage and the performance of your computer improve. Caution: We must emphasize that reinstalling Windows will be a very time-consuming and advanced task to resolve avastsvc. Check if it has improved the performance. Using Windows 8 go into task manager and then startup, start with disabling everything and then enable stuff 1 by 1 till you find the culprit.
My assumption based on the first appearing board misled me, I stand corrected. Maintaining a driver backup provides you with the security of knowing that you can rollback any driver to a previous version if necessary. So, I use only one antivirus in one system.

Hi , Thanks for the reply. There's no reason to use a bloated, slower, and costlier program. How did you keep your settings from reactivating themselves?
