I'd go with that and chalk it up to an anomaly in an newer feature of avast.

So, it's a glitch then.
Really, thank you. You're really helpful c:

I didn't think the Avast Community would be that helpful. ^^

Have a nice day.

Sounds like a popup to sell the Avast Clean up tool.  :(
If you've done the Network Security scan it came back clean that I wouldn't worry about the other message at all.

And with that, I'll assume that it is nothing to worry about. ^^
Thank you as well for helping me figure out the first issue.

Have a nice day.

Previously there was a reported bug in the Smart Scan results window as people were getting all Greens, even when they didn't have the element installed that would supposedly be reporting its result.

So I don't know if the bug has been squashed.

I had spurious results reporting issues where previously all greens even for elements not installed. See attached image, essentially the same as yours. On previous Smart Scans the Home Network Security was Green. What I don't like is the total lack of detailed information on what the problem/s are so a user can make an informed decision.

Like Bob I suspect that clicking the Resolve all button would offer one of the avast paid products, so I didn't bother.

EDIT: Update
I decided to try the Resolve All I could always back out if required and I also have a recent hard disk image backup.

The end result is that it now reports that 'your Home network is well secured.' Surprise surprise that was what it was before.

EDIT 2: Further Update.
I ran the scan again and it is back to square one reporting 'You have some problems in your network.' which is patiently rubbish.

Ah.
Yeah, I think it's a bug in the current version of Avast. I hope they fix that soon, it's a little alarming to see it. I thought it'd be a paid product too, but Network Threat scans are free, so I knew something had to be up there; which it isn't according to the rest of the people commenting on this thread.

Thank you for your input, nonetheless. How do we report this bug to Avast, or do you think they already know it's a bug?

You're welcome.

I have reported this topic for further investigation on the Smart Scan results. Hopefully it will be seen and acted on.
