So after fixing some other problems I saw this one option on my computer and said this doesn't sound bad so it doesn't really hurt to have it on. Then INSTANTLY it says avast driver updater has been blocked cause its "unknown" I would have turned it off if it was already turned off when I opened it back up and is still blocked. I did manage to find a temporary solution after endless searching but obvious cause it was temporary it's now blocked again and do not know how I fixed it and doesn't appear at all anywhere and I know its there cause the first time I fixed it, it had suddenly appeared

I wanna know what exactly is blocking it and how to fix it

Not at all clear who is blocking who or what in your post.  Could you please clarify?
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.

I've no issue viewing the attached picture, but I see three (3) possible culprits:
  • Avast
  • Malwarebytes
  • Windows Defender
Some of us don't follow links outside of the forum, please attach clarification here in your next reply.

WAG, was it Windows Defender?
