A patch should be released to fix this problem. I've got a binary that's 45 megabytes. I was also thinking this. If by chance you start sneaking up the total of your ram it means you need more ram. Depending on how often it samples it may be picking up burst activity as more constant. Before reformatting, my machine idled at 1. Have to add that this boot time is not entirely accurate as it takes longer than that until I can actually use the computer.
Testing just memory usage will not give accurate results. Below is the complete list of some of the most popular antivirus and its usage on system resources. I've only ever had one false positive using Avast however after submitting a sample to them which is now years ago had it fixed in no time. I was basing my concern off of my experiences with Kaspersky, which apparently is more lightweight. Follow this path in the left hand pane.
The dialog will be displayed once every 24h and it is not possible to prevent it from being displayed. Any clue what's going on? This is sometimes really stupid. Now the mem usage is back down to about 15-20 mem. Only in the last 3 or 4 years have most off the shelf computers come with that amount of memory. Even when I closed the program there was still a process running slowing down the computer. The Avast Web Shield is using almost 60 megs of memory even when I'm not browsing the internet.
I have a feeling that my computer's ram memory shrinks as avast and avira are expanding. I wish that this type of testing was done on any page that is reporting top 10. Do not forget that the best way to stay away from troubles is to have up to date software, especially an up to date operating system. I really dont agree with avast being chart topper as what my experience is if you have a i core processor with 2gb+ ram then it is the best but with a old configuration i.

I'd be happy to send the file to a dev via mail or some other means.
I would also like to add a little more. Killing Firefox causes Norton memory to go back down after a while. I've seen people with around 10 to 15 icons in the tray and they had no idea what they even were. Avira is better in every way. Software updater only updates if you ask it to, in the free version. As support said, this will not lower your security because once the file is downloaded, if it was malicious, the active file shield will block it anyway so no harm done.

Check out our list of common. Webroot has always been my 1. Number of Processes: 8 Processes Monitored: ScSecSvc. I'm afraid the support is wrong in this case. That being said, somebody or me eventually should probably generate a couple flame graphs to check if there's any easy problems to squash.
Btw, in the web shield, I think the memory spike was right after I installed Avast, so that was probably Avast like setting all the shields up. Generally, when a decompilation takes too much time or consumes too much memory, you can perform a selective decompilation, which will decompile only a part of the input file. Also Some of these tips from support remain valid - only intelligent scanning and script scanning should not be switched off it said moderator is right. Update: there are much more hungry guys, than this one. Identity Protection - what is your hardware configuration? The only way to stop this is to deactivate the web shield, but not only is that a thing I don't really want to do, the problem appears again around half an hour after reactivating the shield.
