Install Issue with New Version 17.7.2314 (build 17.7.3660.0)
« on: October 05, 2017, 05:01:10 PM »
I did the install but it tells me I'm in Passive Mode and nothing I do will turn it Active. Also Anti Root-Kit is disabled with same effct - I cannot enable it. I do not have Windows Security Installed nor any other AV SW. This is on my PC Win & 64 bit.
Did the upgrade on other PC and it is all active no issues, Same OS etc. What the heck?

Have scanned for malware, spyware = removed all, uninstalled Avast, downloaded offline install and installed clean install = issue remains the same.

Ideas to resolve?

There seem to be a bug with detecting other 'installed' av's.
Next time please (re)search before posting as there are already threads about this with info (as far as it is available now).

Eddy,
I don't have other AV's installed. I'm not a doofus so thank you for being so helpful.

Eddy isn't saying that you have another AV installed, just that Avast appears to be incorrectly detecting/reporting this, what would be considered a bug.  There have been a couple of reports of this in the forums though I don't have a URL to hand.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 22.2.6003 (build 22.2.7013.717) UI 1.0.697/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security
