No doubt, Avast is the most promising antivirus software in the world. They have more than 400 million users. They have also launched Avast Secure Browser. In fact, I have been an Avast Secure user for the past four months. I really like it. They have Ads blocker, Malware Detector, Anti- Tracking, and many more. But, what I recently face is Avast browser opening automatically on Startup.

And also, I notice that Avast Secure Browser consumes more CPU processing power and memory. So, stopped it from starting.

But, wait if the above method does not work for you, then we have another way to stop from opening automatically.

Method- 2 To Stop Avast Browser From Opening On Startup

  1. Go to Start>Setting>Apps>Startup>Avast Browser Or Press Windows Key + I

  2. Find Avast Secure Browser and Turn Off Startup 
    select startup from setting and turn off avast browser
  3. Well done, after that the browser won’t open automatically when you start the computer.

Note: If you update Windows or Avast Browser to a new version, this may also open by default on Startup. To stop, you can follow the same methods.

Avast Secure browser is the most used browser for me because they have AdBlock and hackcheck features I like most. If you are a guy who works or surfs on third-party pop-up ads, for example, free watch live streams on third party sites or free movies, you should definitely go for Avast Security browser. One thing I don’t particularly appreciate that they consume more RAM and CPU space than Mozilla Firefox. But, that’s ok if you have 4 + Gb RAM. 

You can simply go to the Avast website and choose your device OS. They also have Browser on Mac, Android, and Windows. 

If you don’t like it, I recommend you to use Google Chrome or Firefox browser. To be fair, I am currently using Google Chrome for work because they have incredible features, including multi-user sign in, easy interface, and also different extensions to block ads.
