Windows 8 Applications will not open with Avast
« on: January 26, 2013, 06:02:55 PM »
Hello,

I downloaded Avast (first time user) yesterday, and today I discovered some of my Windows 8 applications such as Windows Calendar won't
open. The applications worked, until I downloaded Avast.

How do I fix this?

Thanks for your help.
