Just updated to the latest program definitions and Windows alert says my Avast isn't turned on, but it is. Under Task Manager, only one Avast is running and only one Avast is shown under Programs. I clicked on the Windows alert and clicked turn on Avast, but the warning is still present. What's up with this?

Running win7 with Premiere


Thanks!

It's a very silly general problem it appears (happened to me several times now). And no one really knows what's causing it. I don't want to do stupid reboots all the time just because something is broken in avast!...
