« on: December 01, 2017, 10:08:06 AM »
I installed Avast, but then unistalled it, on Windows 10. However, I'll keep receiving a message that my Firewall is blocked by Avast FW. I can't ged rid of this. Can someone help me?

Hello,

Yes I did this. This did not resolve the problem

I found it! As it might be a more tricky thing, it's maybe a good idea to share it and maybe put in the FAQ's? Although the Firewall told "These Settings are being managed by vendor application Avast FW", I had to search for AVG on my PC.  I found out that AVG and Avast are working together, this is way I was start looking for AVG on the PC.  A quick look in the settings learned me that indeed AVG handled the firewall.

Kind regards
