Windows Security Center does not recognize Avast
« on: October 17, 2012, 11:35:18 AM »
For some reason, this message appeared.

Avast reports it is not running.

But to my best knowledge Avast is running fine.
If I hover above Avast-icon it says your system is secure.
I have tried to click "turn on now" but nothing changes.
I have done a repair on Avast with no new result.
I did a quick scan from Avast. Nothing suspicious.
I did a full MBA scan. Nothing suspicious.

Any suggestions is much appreciated.

I run Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit , Servicepack 1, Danish.
