What did Avast just do?
« on: February 19, 2017, 03:41:41 PM »
I updated the main program file.
Ran a smart scan.
It showed Performance Issues and Weak passwords.
When the old version did this and I hit continue it would show me what it was going to do and I could stop things I wanted going myself.

This!
Did!
Not!

And I can't bloody well see what it did to fix it if it broke something. What do I do?

Edit: This is the free version

Edit 2: Please, please, don't tell me you made the damned thing without giving us, the users, the option to not only modify what it changes but can't even see what it does afterwards.

The issue has already been reported to Avast. Hopefully it'll be fixed soon. :)

Ah, *sigh*, I hope it didn't do anything too bad. I have quite a few startup items because of my faulty brainmatter memory.
