I am still getting the "You are unprotected! Avast Background service is not running." message periodically.  I can resolve it from the GUI or doing a reboot.  I have done the repair install several times as well as a clean install twice.

I'm running Windows 10 Anniversary 64bit with avast 12.3.2280

I'm still having the same problem. This is after running the avast uinstaller in safe mode then installing avast again. This started after the Windows 10 1607 update on my desktop, but laptop started having this problem and its on Windows 10 1511. There is a bug in the avast application itself due to many people having the same issue. I'm to the point of jumping ship to another application and it sucks because I'm running a paid license.

Thanks in adavce

Check your installed programs. I had this persistent problem recently on one computer. My other computers with Avast! installed did not have the problem. One difference was a program was installed on the problem computer that was not installed on the others. That program was Advanced System Care 9. I uninstalled the program and now the problem has disappeared. This application may be the cause of your your problem. Hope this helps.

Any suggestions for what to do if there is no protection and the support tool isn't working either when dealing with this issue? It just sits uploading the support file well beyond the few minutes it's said to take.

Edit: I managed to get it to finally upload.

FIASCO with every new build
« Reply #219 on: February 08, 2017, 12:42:06 PM »
AVAST is getting worse and worse with each and every "cool" new update!

Don't update the software so often, we don't want a new version every month, but a protection software that works and doesn't force us to update or install components we don't want.

I really have to repeat my request not to update the software so often and only after testing it in real beta environment.
Afte the new fiasco with Avast 17.1.2286, I more and more think that all users are BETA testers indeed.

The new versions where tested as Beta by many users and reported problems where fixed.

But you can't expect a new version is tested on all trillions of possible combinations (hardware/software/settings etc) before releasing it.

It's actually been a long time since the last release of Avast. This one is also working well:

And still, Avast is getting worse from build to build. Other members say the same:

Really Avast, this again?

Open up Firefox, after Avast has been updated to Avast Bloatware 2017.
Avast popups that I have to addons with bad reputation. One of the addons are directly from Mozilla and the other is a Google Image Search, which is not harmful. Great job Avast, top class AV solution. Clicks skip and then my Firefox is rebooted even though I clicked skip. It opens up on a search.avast.com site and my startpage in Firefox has been changed to search.avast.com

Are you kidding me? I am paying for Avast, so why are Avast hijacking my startpages?

Haven't seen any change in my home page. ???
If the user has a problem maybe asking for help would solve the problem.
