why do you think chrome is a virus???
« on: January 24, 2019, 03:12:05 PM »
I'm growing tired of avast. Emails not working until I disable email shield. False positives for viruses. And now...chrome won't work until I disable web shield. What gives? Why is this happening? Do you know of the browser known as chrome? Why does this need a security check that will "take about 15 seconds" but...does not respond until I disable web shield? Should I disable all shields for my computer to function correctly? Perhaps I should go to Norton and have 20% functionality of my PC, that is probably better, at least the antivirus works, and does not stop normal functions from working.

answer please

Also...don't make a "contact us" link if you are just going to palm ppl off to your FAQ and forum. Circular links just piss ppl off

Hi mrdoppelina,
I have not enough information to help you but may I ask you to try few steps :

1) disable avast self defence
2) rename "c:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\aswJsFlt.dll"  to "c:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\aswJsFlt.dll.org"
3) Start new chrome process

Let me know if it helped.
Thank you for report !

Be sure to re-enable Avast Self-Defense when done.   ;)
Windows 10 Home 64-bit 1809 Avast Premier Security version 19.8.2393 (build 19.8.4793.541) UI version 1.0.415.  Current version is back to Avast Internet Security.

By renaming the xxx.dll to xxx.dll.org you are obscuring the old .dll but not deleting it.
