I recently installed Avast because windows defender was spiking to 100% CPU a lot of the time which made my laptop hang and it was getting on my nerves.
I always used to use avast so I went back to that.
The high cpu spikes are gone and my system is definitely running smoother without defender.
However, Avast is using almost half a GB of RAM. This seems an awful lot for one AV program?
Is that normal or not?
