Avast blocking me from downloading Avast
« on: August 13, 2016, 08:57:33 AM »
Can someone help me- Suddenly getting this msg below blocking my web search and it is really doing my head in.

Your subscription has ended - OK didn’t know I was subscribed..then

Renew Your subscription

to which I get:

There is no application set to open the URL avastsl://renew.
etc etc does’t work
so..

Search the App Store for an application that can open this document, or choose an existing application on your computer.

- didn’t work for me

Originally (2 days ago) I removed Avast with CleanMyMac3 but the VPN or whatever still kept on blocking my searches.


So.. I try to re-download Avast so I can change settings (stop pop up stuff as recommended by forum msgs) but still same nag message.

Finally I create a new account with avast and get their emails thru etc and try to download Avast (free/ Mac) via email and it prevents me again.

“Your subscription has ended” - etc ………I know, I have been told!

So catch 22 -.  can anyone help?

Thanks in advance :)

Can you please provide some screenshot? It is really not clear what is preventing you from what...
