Big Avast Problem
« on: June 24, 2014, 03:55:56 PM »
I am seriously thinking about remove it from my computer.

I have had 2 pretty serious problems to my system using Avast within the last few days.

The first one was Friday and I was notified that there were some bad Firefox addons, so I clicked fix or whatever then I lost all my bookmarks, all my password saves, and my entire system was reset, IE its like all programs on my computer including Avast were just installed on a clean hard drive. IE I lost all of my settings for every program on my entire computer.

I go about for hours getting everything set up again.

This morning I get a software health notice and its Java. I have upgraded java many times before.
This time it failed and reset my entire system again.
Bookmarks gone from Java, all my settings for my entire system reset.

This is extremely frustrating and I dont have the time or patience.

Apparently all my user data for the entire computer system are being reset or erased.

So what you are saying is a file gets infected in User settings in windows and Avast wipes out all the user settings ??
