cannot have avast to run!
« on: January 27, 2018, 08:58:33 PM »
Hello,
I have win 8.1 and am using avast from the beginning of time
I asked by a right click to scan a downloaded file and got the message that avast ui should be running first. I then noticed that indeed I dont see the avast 'virus' logo on my  notification area and that it is not listed  in the notif area icon lists I then launched avastui.exe from C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast but nothing happened. I then downloaded avast from avast site and launched the installation program. It terminated w/o any notice and I can see the the the avastui.exe had not been replaced: the version is dated Jan 12. All this is very strange.
Any suggestion?
Thanks in advance

Thank you!
rebooted (before reading your reply) and all seems to be working correctly again:)
