Double clicking on VPN Icon brings up password manager
« on: September 03, 2018, 05:10:20 PM »
The VPN io in the system tray brings up the password manager rather than the VPN screen.
avast ver 18.6.2349 (build 18.6.3983.0)

Try the following: Repair Avast:
Control Panel> Program and Features (Add/remove program)>Select Avast> Select Repair. Reboot when completed

If Repair doesn't fix the problem, try the following:
Clean Install of Avast:

I've reported the bug to Avast.
What you can do is remove the Secureline component and replace it
with the freestanding product. https://www.avast.com/en-us/secureline-vpn#pc
Eventually the product will only be available via the freestanding module.

This bug will be fixed in the next version update. The recommendation is still to remove the
component from within Avast and install the freestanding version.
