See if a repair of Avast solves it.

I'm not sure, but I think you can also change that setting in Avast4.ini

Hi, welcome to the forums.

Add Remove programs, avast! Anti-Virus, Change/Remove button and scroll down to Repair, click next and follow. You need to be on-line to do this.

Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 23.4.6062 (build 23.4.8118.762) UI 1.0.762/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove programs > avast! antivirus > Remove
Then choose Repair function in the popup window (Repair).
You must be connected to the internet while repairing.

If this does not help, can you uninstall / boot / install / boot again?

The "start" button left down under the screen? I don't see the name "control panel" in the menu.

I have look in the FAQ's of avast and mayby is the follow instruction the solution because I don't find the control panel also not in "start>settings.




"avast! uninstall utility
Sometimes it´s not possible to uninstall avast! standard way - using ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS control panel. In that case you can use our uninstallation utility aswClear.

How to uninstall our software using aswClear.exe:

Download aswClear.exe on your desktop
Execute it
If you installed avast! in different folder than default, browse for it. (Note: Be careful! The content of any folder you choose will be deleted!)
Click REMOVE
Restart your computer"

At last I find the follow in the FAQ'S:

[ How can I uninstall avast!?

A: You can uninstall avast! just as any other software - using ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS in Control Panel. There is nothing special about this. If any problem appears, use the avast! uninstall utility.

The exact way:

Click on START button.
Select SETTINGS -> CONTROL PANEL (or simply CONTROL PANEL - it depends on your Windows version) -> ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS.
From the list of installed applications select avast! Antivirus and click on CHANGE/REMOVE button.
avast! setup starts. Select UNINSTALL and click on NEXT.
Computer restart will be needed after avast! uninstallation.]


I find the control panel with clicking on the list of installed applications and click on "change/remove" button,now I clicked on the area "repair".

Note: the problem is not repaired!!!!!!!!!!

Were you on-line at the time you tried to repair?

If yes and that didn't work, then uninstall avast, reboot, install avast agsin and reboot.
