Avast not opening in GUI and duplicated in Icon tray
« on: March 23, 2019, 02:48:10 PM »
Hi all,

Since the past few weeks, I've noticed that Avast is acting a bit weird...

First of all, I simply cannot open it: it is running in the background, but I haven't managed to get the front end to open a single time.

Moreover, when trying to scan an item from my computer, I get an error message saying the UI is not running.

Then, I realised that after letting my computer running for a while, the icon started duplicating in the icon tray.

This morning, I found it with the icon duplicated about 100 times...!!!

I tried to repair the Program but that didn't work...any ideas on how to fix this by any chance?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards
Alexis
