I have AVAST PREMIUM ... My Avast account is CONNECTED ... my PROTECTED AREAS include General Program Access and all other checkboxes.  I cannot figure out how to change the password for this area ... have searched all over.  Can anyone advise?  Thank you for your time.

Hi Clint2,

Did you password protect the installation yourself?
Windows 10 Home 64-bit 21H2 Avast Premier Security version 22.3.6008 (build 21.3.7108.721) UI version 1.0.702.
