Maybe that error is something Microsoft also has to patch, not sure on that, but I have seen it on the previous Avast stable release, not yet on the newest release

Last version didn't show red cross. It just said "Status info unavailable". Now I get red cross which is annoying and silly.

I got Red cross one evening with 17.7.2314 on this Windows 10 Pro Desktop, I just restarted that night and seemed to fix it, didn't think of reporting it in here though, Do agree annoying and silly though in regards to the Red Cross,  I haven't seen it again as yet though


Just Came up with 17.8.2318 new version just now

First was Green as no problems, then went to red, I stopped shields for 10 minutes, then went back to normal green in Windows Defenders security center. 


It's random when it happens with the red cross there, right now its showing normal, but who knows if its gonna happen again or not
