When I run a quick scan it freezes at 3666 of 3665 files scanned (which makes no sense), for about 10 mins. cpu usage becomes very high and my mac gets hot, it continues after a while but then freezes again around 3800 and 6000 files. Eventually the scan finishes but the burden on the system during this time isn't right. I'm running macOS Catalina 10.15.6 on Macbook Air. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Avira several times. Can anyone help?
EDIT: After playing around a bit more with Avira, it seems to not be performing correctly. Even the user interface has redundant buttons. On the activity page, the highlighted clickable 'log' button performs no action, so I can't even check the scan log to try to get more info about the scans. After updates it sometimes shows a warning on the scanner page that more than one antivirus is installed which it is not (is it conflicting with itself?). This disappears after a few seconds.
