smart scan stuck
« on: June 02, 2019, 07:12:59 AM »
Smart scan is stuck at 75% on checking browser.  If I try to close the program it will hang.

Free Avast version 19.5.2378 build 19.5.4444.501
Running on Win 10 Pro 1809 OS build 17763.437

As a Repair requires a 'Reboot' I wonder??
I have cleared/resolved many quirks with Avast over the last few years by simply Rebooting.
Just saying :)
