Avast Firewall shield hangs boot - Win8.1
« on: April 13, 2014, 01:53:22 AM »
Avast firewall 2014.9.0.2016

Windows 8.1 Update 1 - Clean install.



Avast firewall Shield causes boot to hang at desktop for over a minute. Does not let any other programs start.

If firewall shield is disabled, has no problem booting. Once firewall Shield is turned back on. Hangs at boot again.

Using default settings - auto answer for program permissions.

I have tried Offline and online installs.

Any ideas?

By hang I mean totally stops anything else from loading.

Loads the desktop and hangs, Cant load task manager.

After a minute or so then task manager appears and i know its got past its hang.
