Hi Lee55, welcome to the forum :)

Have you updated to Avast 2015 R3 SP1 (2015.10.3.2225) https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=174286.0

If you have updated, try a repair of Avast :

1) Start - Control Panel - Add/Remove Programs - Avast! - Change.
2) Repair.
3) Follow the instructions.
4) Reboot.

Greetz, Red.

Hello,

I have the same problem with the Avast firewall since updating to Windows 10. I did update Avast, which didn't change anything. So I tried repairing it through the control panel, but Avast appears as "not available" and my only option is to uninstall it. Any idea what I should do now?

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

I have the exact same problem after the Windows 10 update. Updating Avast didn't change anything here either. I also tried to turn off Windows Defender but it didn't work.

I hope this can be fixed easily somehow. Thanks for your help.

First try a reboot as that cleared my firewall problem in 10 ..  If that should fail then repair Avast

I believe that is because of the way windows 10 upgrades and the second reboot clears all the flags

For me too, the second reboot solved the issue.

Rebooting numerous times did nothing to solve my same issue, however running the repair option did. Once I did that and rebooted I was all good.

Thanks for the helpful information . :)

I had this problem just after upgrade too. Simple avast repair solved the firewall problem easily. But now virtual machines are gone, so no virtualization left (again) on my notebook  ???

I'm having this problem too. I've tried multiple reboots and the repair option 3 times, and still no joy

Try to remove avast completely and install it "freshly" again :)
