SafeZone Suddenly Won't Open
« on: January 05, 2017, 11:49:53 PM »
After a reboot, I tried to open the SafeZone Web Browser and received the following error message:

Can't open user profile directory, because you lack sufficient privileges.
You might want to contact the administrator of this machine.

I am the administrator of this machine, and no privileges settings have been changed (not on purpose, at least).  How do I fix this?  Thanks!

OK, let's try a clean reinstall...

1. Download Avast Premier Antivirus: https://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_premier_antivirus_setup_offline.exe
2. Follow instructions: https://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility (Run this tool for all prior installed Avast versions..!!)
3. Reinstall Avast with the downloaded installer from point 1.
4. Reboot.

It looks like that worked, but now I've lost all of my bookmarks.

In case it happens again, please do not run SZB under administrator (I mean UAC elevation).. Start the browser normally using icon on the desktop..

Also make sure you do not start the SZB from app which is running under admin.

thx
