Avast Disappears
« on: September 25, 2013, 08:36:14 PM »
I have noticed on one of my laptops that--while Avast! is running--it is not running correctly.  When the Application Updater pop-up appears, "nothing" happens when I click on it.  Similarly, when in the user interface, the program disappears when I click on the Security tab.  In both instances, a second Avast! icon will appear in the system tray for a second or two and then disappear.  Am I infected?  If so, what do I need to look for?  Or is Avast! merely acting up and I should just uninstall/re-install?

First try a repair. Go to Control Panel>Programs and Functions>Add or remove software>In the list of installed programs double click on Avast

At the bottom is an option called repair, choose this and le it run.
