Suddenly, Behavior Shield kept reverting to its "off" state for no reason and that really bugs me.

- OS..? (32/64 Bit..? - which SP/Build..?)

Avast 18.1.3800.0
Windows 10 64 bit Pro
No other program other than Avast
No other than Avast.

If there's a workaround to force Behavior Shield activation via Task Scheduler I'd like to know.
