"C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\x64\aswhooka.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support. Error status 0xc0000006"
I get a popup message that won't go away when I click"X" or click "OK". Cpu and Ram memory are at low percentages while disk usage is at 100%. I didn't use up all my space prior to this issue. I bought my computer last year so I doubt this is a hardware problem.

I found 2 websites with info pertaining to your problem. The first suggests disabling Avast Behavior Shield to stop the error.

The next one gives info on how to end the 100% disk usage. Assuming it is a Windows 10 OS.

My suggestion is to completely shut down Avast and uninstalling it. That may solve both issues.

If it does, you can then reinstall Avast.
