Windows 10 blocking Avast firewall
« on: August 12, 2015, 01:47:53 PM »
The title says it all. Since installing windows 10 i've been unable to use avast's firewall. Even turning off window's firewall does not help. I've done a clean re-install of avast premier and still no dice. Does anyone know of a way to fix this?

avast firewall problems are ususally solved with 1 or 2 reboots after install

On Win10 you repair like this    Right click on the start button > select Program and Features > select Avast > select repair
