I am finding this quite infuriating and not the least disconcerting that upon start up my Avast premier on occasion willbe entirely disabled and it wont enable despite my attempts to enable it -it comes on after a while but then can be 5-10 minutes and also i never gives my notification that the shields are down

on other occasions, it will have just one shield and i will have to enable this to switch it back on - why is Avast acting in such a reckless way?

I suggest an installation from scratch:

1. Download the latest version of Avast Uninstall Utility and save it.
2. Download the latest Avast version and save it.
3. (Optional) If you want, save your Avast settings for later restoration (Settings > Maintenance > Back up).
4. Uninstall Avast from Control Panel (if possible) and reboot.
5. Run the Avast Uninstall Utility saved on 1 in and follow the instructions. Reboot Windows in Safe Mode, uninstall Avast and then reboot in Normal Mode again.
6. Install Avast using the setup saved on 2. Register your free copy or add the license key for the paid versions. Boot.
7. Check and post the results.

Please, be patient, boot when it's said to boot...
