How do I Recover master password for Avast passwords
« on: February 21, 2019, 04:51:12 PM »
When I open Avast, I get a window that asks for my password so I can not get in to Avast at all because I forgot my Password.  I cant even uninstall it.  How can I recover my password?

Unable to do anything with avast because when I open it it shows the following message
                                         Authorization
An attempt has been made to enter a protected area of Avast. This may be a legitimate action, but could be also the result of a malware attack.

it then asks for my password but I forgot it, so it will not let me do anything else.
