For some reason my Avast, at times, won't show my:
Full System Scan
USB scan
Folder scan
Or my custom scans, any help

Perform a repair of avast.
If that doesn't solve it, perform a clean installation with the latest version (or beta if you want) and check if the problem is solved.

I did the repair, but that did not work.  I don't know what the clean install is.
Is that I uninstall and then re-install?

Thnx

Ummm...If I do that, would I loose my custom scan?
I have one that I don't want to lose.  Can I save it somehow?

Sure.  Just write the parts you want to keep in place down and re-create the custom scan after you get everything else running well.

OK, I was guessing that might be the solution.  I can only hope it works.

Easier way, export your settings and reimport them after the reinstall.

I don't know how exactly to do that, also, I am not very keen about uninstalling and then re-installing.
Just to be honest.

I Use avast free anti-virus, just like in those pix on the link.
I think it might be 2016, cause that's when I got it (If I remember correctly)
That was actually quite helpful.  Thanks!
