any discount for avira antivirus?i wanna purchase 1 pc 1 year
so nice thanks for that
Avira "broke" that capability months ago, and has yet to resolve a means to override detections.
Just updated to version 126.96.36.199 and it deleted all of my real-time scan exclusions. Crap!!!
Can anyone help with avira free running on windows 10 with high disk usage?
Ive reformated the computer and its still not helping,i currently am using 360 total.Hitman pro for on demand scans
High disk usage can be caused by many things. What do you see going on with task manager and resource monitor? Any other tasks running? What tasks are using the disk?
Avira should run fine on Windows 10.
I'll assume that you were not trying to run Avira and 360 together ...
When i have avira free installed i would open TM and cpu usage would be at 98% in red,no i know not to run to AVs at once,i can reinstall avira free and take a photot if that would help?
If on a clean Windows 10 installation you have installed Avira and the CPU is high then you might be one of those rare cases whereby there is incompatibility between hardware and the program. But if you had installed 360 TSE first then it could be some registry entries left over that could cause the problem.
If I were you I would try the following: Get REVO Uninstaller free (it is a program that will uninstall 360 TSE completely) http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html (scroll down the page for the download). Make sure to check all the registry entries suggested by the program and delete them before a reboot is requested (if any).
Then you can try installing Avira. Quite frankly if 360 works well and is not heavy why change to Avira?
Yes, a screenshot will help to see the affeceted Avira process and the process environment.
I do use revo unistaller free,i love avira always have,and i will get that sceenshot to you asap Cmhelper
Probably should also check that Windows Defender is no longer running after installing Avira. Defender is supposed to disable itself if it detects a 3rd party AV is installed.
But Defender is enabled by default on a fresh install of Windows 10. So, in theory, if it failed to correctly identify Avira there could be a conflict ...
Ill look into both,thank you tinstaafl
I reformated it last night installed avira free,hitman pro,ccleaner,revo uninstaller freehttps://photos.google.com/search/_tra_/photo/AF1QipNHndfgfrnTvh1a2q8x34r1d3Lzt4Anbbsm97-c
And why does it say 32 bit on the avira in task manager when i have 64 bit windows 10?
you can run 32 bit (x86) programs in 64 bit versions of windows. many programs are not fully 64 bit yet.
Oh ok i thought that was the problem for a minute or two
Hey, try clicking on the CPU column header in the Task Manager, to sort the list from highest to lowest CPU usage. The display you took a capture from is listed in alpha order, which does not show the problem in context with the actual high usage tasks together.
Avira Free Security Suite
From the looks of that it appears to be Catalyst Control Center taking the highest CPU hit, with Avira not far behind. The secondary issue is that your disk usage is very high at 98%, with CCC and Avira using about the same concurrent disk throughput. Are they conflicting
If it was me, I would open the hood in Avira and set some real-time scan configuration exclusions for everything Catalyst. I use nVidia and am not familiar with AMD, so I can't help with what to exclude from scans, but that's probably the first thing to try.
Since last night ive seen the cpu % go up to around 98 also disk usage,so i got curious and installed 360 total,still same problem,now avast is having the issue,this is all on a reformat also im so confused,ill check into what you mentioned above,thanks for helping out tinstaafl
As Tinstaafl pointed out, you can try disabling Catalyst Control Center through Task Manager/Start up. It is not required to start with Windows, I have it on one machine and I disabled it...
Now i notice the thumbnails aint showing up,could all this be caused by a virus?
