Where can I find the "Authorization"?
« on: February 22, 2017, 01:00:24 PM »

When I try to iniate a Smart Scan, opens the "Authorization" window asking for a password. I can`t use my master password there. Where can I find the correct password so I can start the smart scan? I also can`t go my settings page.

I can`t take the screen shot when the Authorization password window is open.
There is finnish text that says: using the company protected area of the program has been found (check the settings). This may be justified measure, but can also be malware attack. Do you want to continue?

Password window is open 60 seconds to write, and after that window closes.

I have Windows 8.1 64-bit and Avast 2022 (17.1.2286)
