    I do not use avast, So I can not say if this normal. But I did check mine .It use 0% . Unless it is scanning then maybe 15%. You could try removing Avast. With its Uninstaller program. The reinstall it. See if this helps. It may have a corrupt file. Or you could try using another antivirus program.

    I have no such issue, but then I also don't run scan and only enable email and weblink validations.
