password protection feature
« on: April 29, 2016, 05:29:38 PM »
so, for the last couple version updates, I'll inevitably get the 'scan and store passwords' screen.

now, I know for a fact I've disabled that feature as I dont want avast managing my passwords for me, I prefer my chrome browser do that.

is this some nag screen or was the feature simply not uninstalled properly somehow? how do I make this screen go away for good? clicking skip does zippo it seems.

just because you dont see a problem, that does not mean it doesn't exist. keep an open mind.

Ensure that you remove the Passwords feature/module completely, not just disable.

Control Panel > Programs and Features > Avast Antivirus > Change - from the next window - Modify, now uncheck the Passwords option.

I did that, I misphrased my sentence. I apologize. that particular module was uninstalled the day it was introduced.

Strange, I too never installed it as can be seen by my attached image, I also use a different solution. But I have never had this 'scan and store passwords' screen.

That might well be very helpful to the avast team members as to why you might be getting this 'scan and store passwords' screen.

anyone got any idea what could possibly be causing this? cause at this point I am regarding that screen as nag-ware and I want it GONE.
