I've just reset my system and upgraded to Windows 8.1. After installing Avast! I've been having major issues with it.
First things first- I can't use Avast or any of it's features, it says I'm unprotected- the avast service is off, self defense is off and it won't allow me to resolve the errors. It even refuses me to update the software. I have also tried to uninstall Avast! So I can try again with a fresh install, unfortunately it refuses to uninstall.
So I'm left without protection, the Avast software is refusing to uninstall or do anything at all.
It's also causing my system to slow.
I appreciate any help, thank you all in advance.
I have attached a photo to this thread, it's one of many dialogues that keep popping up when I try to resolve the issues.
