Ops, forgot to mention: alter updating from 12.2.3126.0 to 12.2.3126.2, the program date shows "31-Dec-1969", time "22:00:00".

Also, at some point, I've got some "language error" on some DLL file.
(Sorry, I haven't a print screen of it)

Does anybody see ou saw this 1969 date?

I would advise a clean install to users to rule out corrupt installs.

You need to perform a clean install:

1.Download your version of avast! and the avastclear tool.

http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_free_antivirus_setup_offline.exe

http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_pro_antivirus_setup_offline.exe

http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_internet_security_setup_offline.exe

http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_premier_antivirus_setup_offline.exe


Download Avast Clear Tool

2. Uninstall Avast by control panel  [If you don't have Avast in control Panel go to #3]
3. Uninstall in safe mode using Avastclear. [Running Avastclear is normal mode will give a prompt to go into Safe Mode]
Check : Once uninstalled check in device manager>view>show hidden devices if there is anything related to avast with a yellow triangle.. if so, uninstall it and reboot.
5. Install the version you downloaded.
6. Reboot.

Free: If you have the Free version, register the product for free for a year from the avast! UI.
Paid: If you have a paid license, insert the license key/activation code after the reboot at stage 6.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. It's better to ask than make a mistake and start over again with the process.

I am having this problem and these steps did not help.

Sorry about that.

There's an issue with V12.2.2276 (build 12.2.3126.2) as figured out and neither a clean install or repair will fix it until Avast fixes the issue.

I have edited my earlier clean install post.

As noted: Doing a clean install doesn't work, doing a repair doesn't work. The only way around this is to go back to the over version (before the update). Unfortunately the Avast support form and many sites don't have the older version available and I had to go searching online for the older version and it works, back up and running. If Avast has any compassion towards its customers they should at least have the older version available on here to keep us protected until the problem is fixed, its the ethical thing to do.

I'm having much of the same problem as everyone else in this thread. Clean reinstall will not solve the problem, and each time the Virus Scanner will not start. Also with Premium (which I have subscription for) the background shields will not activate and there seems to be a conflict with Win10. Sometimes the Install Date is listed as 12/31/1969. So far I'm relying on WinDef and MB for protection until this problem hopefully gets resolved, because honestly I like Avast ever since I switched to it.

As with everyone else, im having problems too with the latest update - even the beta.
But my problem is I get a blue screen with Windows 10. Previous versions worked fine. Installing a previous version works fine until it decides to want to do the program update, it downloads, begins to install, then about the 65% mark it blue screens on me.

It says I'm completely unprotected and none of the background services are running. Windows 10 64 bit, Avast Internet Security.

I am also having the same exact problems and have tried un-installing and re-installing the program three times.  Currently my laptop has no anti-virus protection.  Does Avast have a customer support team that monitors this forum??

Same problem for two windows 10 computers over here. 4 pages already but no Avast staff says anything while it looks like basically all just updated Avast antivirus is not working worldwide and it makes us 100% un protected? How to trust Avast can really protect us from virus since it looks like the staff does not react to stuff like 24 hours!?

It seems the AvastSvc.exe is functioning normally, only GUI is bugged.
I tested on my Vista machine and successfully reproduced the issue, and Avast blocks eicar as usual, concluding AvastSvc itself is working.

I found AvastUI.exe is not signed as usual, and this might be the cause of the problem, because Avast seems blocking access to its service from untrusted modules using self-defense.
If I disable self-defense module via editing avast5.ini file and restart AvastUI.exe, AvastUI shows avast is working.
