Avast is down
« on: May 26, 2018, 09:40:28 PM »
When running WiFi Inspector, Avast crashes and shows a massage stating Avast is down. When I attempt to restart a message pops up stating another program is trying to stop Avast.

Avast Free version 18.4.2338 on Windows 10 (64 bit) build 17134.  I also have Malwarebytes installed. 

Prior to Avast I've used McAfee, Norton, and AVG, but for the past several years I've only used Avast.

I tried adding the exclusions, Avast didn't show me any files in the Windows\System32\Drivers folder.  Still receiving 'Avast is down' message while running WiFi Inspector, but Avast restarts couple seconds later.
