I see your second image (EDIT: now removed) had the Browser Protection highlighted, but that is for the Avast Online Security add-on and not for the Browser CleanUp.

When I clicked on change it showed Browser Cleanup didn't have a check mark so it must have kept my settings from version 2208.

Most likely. Also you can turn on/off these Avast tools in:

Avast > SETTINGS > Tools > ON/OFF

Updated through GUI and had empty scanning information windows which I posted about in the main forum. I tried repair unsuccessfully. I then found that Sleep Mode wouldn't awaken through a key stroke; I had to push the power button. I rolled back the update through a System Restore but I still have the same problem with Sleep Mode. Needless to say I'm not very happy and I wonder if anyone can help me.

Avast does not like system restore much. If you need to do one, it is recommended to deactivate Avast Selfdefence module first.

Any other security program active ?
Did you try a clean install ?


1.) Very important to remove all remains of other AVs installed before Avast. Use this site to execute uninstall utilities for other AVs.

http://www.avast.com/faq.php?article=AVKB11#artTitle or http://singularlabs.com/uninstallers/security-software/

2.) Download and save to your desktop avastclear.exe

3.) Download and save a fresh copy of Avast!. Be sure to have your lincense handy if running a paid version.

http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_free_antivirus_setup.exe
http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_pro_antivirus_setup.exe
http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_internet_security_setup.exe
http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_premier_antivirus_setup.exe

4.) Open Avast! > Settings > Troubleshooting > Uncheck " Enable Avast! self-defense module ".

5.) Uninstall Avast! normally through Control Panel > Programs & feature ( Vista, W7 ) or Add and remove programs ( XP ). Reboot. If you can not complete this step, continue with step # 6   

6.) Even if you were able to uninstall Avast! in step # 5, it is important to run avastclear.exe in Safe Mode

How to use avastclear: http://www.avast.com/en-us/faq.php?article=AVKB10#idt_02

NOTE: When executing avastclear, it will ask to be run in safe Mode so follow instructions.

7.) Reinstall fresh copy of Avast! and reboot.

Be aware. Avast! will offer Chrome during installment. Remember to opt-out if you do not want it.

Okay. I'll try this in the next 24 hours or so and reply back.

I clean installed and the scanning windows are now working correctly but Sleep Mode is still not working properly. Any idea what the problem is, how Avast! misconfigured my system?

I think it is time to break free of this very long topic and create your own new topic.

In that copy and paste your previous information; can you tell us what avast version you are using, avast free/Pro/AIS/Premium and what is your Operating System version.

Very sorry for taking up valuable space in the wrong thread. I posted my problem in a new thread entitled Sleep Mode Problem.

No problem, it isn't so much taking up valuable space, just that your question/problem would get buried within it as it continues to grow.
