Behavior Shield keeps reverting to off on startup?

Suddenly, Behavior Shield kept reverting to its "off" state for no reason and that really bugs me.

Avast 18.1.3800.0
Windows 10 64 bit Pro
No other program other than Avast
No other than Avast.

If there's a workaround to force Behavior Shield activation via Task Scheduler I'd like to know.
