Hi,

When I leave my computer alone for a while, the hard disk start to be very busy. Using Windows Task Manager I found KAVSVC.EXE was working with highest CPU and Mem Usage. When I move the mouse, it stopped.
Is this the expected case or anything wrong?

Thank you in advance.

kavsvc.exe (if i'm not mistaken) is part of the kapersky antivirus program...your computer is probably just taking advantage of the idle time and preforming a virus scan
