Avast Online Security
« on: March 19, 2017, 12:01:55 AM »
Ok I will admit sometimes I am not the sharpest tool in the shed.  I never used AOS as I had always used WOT.  I got rid of WOT when all the negative information surfaced on them.  I would like to use AOS now but cannot find how to enable it.  I use FF and not Chrome and it is not on this machine.  IE is on this machine also.  There is no add on listed in FireFox.  I went to the modify Avast in the control panel and do not see AOS listed there.  Is it under a different name?   I did a seach on here for AOS and Avast Online Security but posts are all about people who have it installed already. 

I am using the latest version of Avast Free.
Windows 8.1 on an HP desktop.
FireFox is updated to the latest version. 

What am I missing? 
Thanks!

Don't feel bad.  Sometimes change for the sake of change makes no sense.  :(

Ok one more question.  Am I supposed to enable something in FireFox?  I see nothing to enable with this name under extensions or plugins.  It is installed.

Ok I rebooted again and this time when I opened FireFox the message was there to install the add-on.  Thank you for your time and patience!!  I really appreciate the help.
