Avast Free Version Antivirus Scan Too Fast
« on: June 30, 2019, 08:14:27 PM »
I'm running Avast Free Antivirus 19.6.2383 (build 19.6.4546.494) on my Win10 laptop. When I try to do a full virus scan I immediately get the message "Great! No issues found." There is no indication that its scanning as in the past. This began about April of this year (2019). Is this new?

I have seen other threads with full scan closing before it should and returning nothing found message. Indication of something wrong in the program. Have you tried to do a Repair of Avast?

It's a know problem that has already been reported to Avast.

Not just the free version, see my thread on the same issue

Quick work around is to run the full scan and when it fails click on the "done" button and then re run the scan and it should work.
