Behavior Shield is turned off nearly every time I start Windows
« on: December 26, 2017, 08:49:04 AM »
Hi,

Almost every time I start up Windows, I see a warning from Avast indicating Behavior Shield is turned Off, even though it was On previously and I hadn't turned it Off.  No matter how many times I turn Behavior Shield ON, it will nearly always be Off again the next time I start Windows.  It doesn't seem to be properly saving the setting correctly...most of the time.  There's maybe a 10% - 20% chance that Behavior Shield will be on (correctly) when starting Windows, but I haven't found any particular reason why sometimes it's correct, and usually it's not.

I noticed this around the time Avast changed over to the newer UI earlier this year, though I can't say exactly when.  I've been waiting for it to go away on its own, but to no avail.

Avast Free 17.9.2322 (Build 17.9.3761.0)
Windows 7 64-bit Home

Thank you!  I searched for "behavior" rather than "behaviour", so I didn't see that thread.
