My shields uninstalled! Reinstalling very slow.
« on: May 14, 2019, 10:06:57 PM »
Was looking for something else in the Avast Free interface, and found that all of my shields were apparently gone with an "install" button in their place. No warnings, no nothing - if I hadn't been looking, I would never have known. And reinstalling them seems to be going very slowly.

Win 10 did seem a little glitchy today, the login screen wouldn't bring up the password prompt until I forced a reset. Not sure if it could be related (maybe Win 10 broke them, it seemed to run an update after I did that) but it's the only other thing out of the ordinary.

Search didn't bring up any threads about this, but I thought I'd check and see if anyone knew what was up.

Running a full scan now too.
