Hello!

I just installed Avast! again after using MSE and getting sick of it's limitation in features and long scan times. Much much better now :)

I decided to go and try Internet Security. So I registered and hit the Free Trial of Internet Security button. All nice and working fine.
Internet Security however added only features I don't use; Windows Firewall is good enough for me, SafeZone is cool but a bit overkill for me (Chromium itself is good enough).

So I went back to Free. However before going back, I forgot to disable the auto creation of the SafeZone option. Now, Avast! creates the icon again on every reboot, and there's no option to disable the creation. I can enter SafeZone, but the browser doesn't work anymore and there's no browser icon, just the text.

I just attempted to reset the settings to default and I still have to reboot now - hope it'll be better by then. If it works, consider this a bug report :)

Thanks!
Don't fix what ain't broken and in most cases don't break what ain't fixed.

And if it doesn't work then follow the suggestion from the other topic you just posted in to uninstall and reinstall the free version.

Resetting the settings did work. I will reinstall Avast however just to avoid any further problems :)
Thanks!
