Laptop Tuneup by Local Shop--Shop Changed Antivirus
« on: July 14, 2019, 10:26:56 PM »
Hello There

Recently had Laptop tuned up/dust cleaned out by local shop, as wasn't comfortable myself cleaning laptop of dust or opening it as yet,  next time I will be,  spent $95.00 for a Complete Tuneup, Dust clean out, not even sure was needed really,   anyways had on Windows 10 Home, Avast Free 19.6 installed before took it in,   noticed when loaded it up Avast was missing,  Defender was activated, called shop and Tech stated Avast mines data, and such, not sure how true that is, used it on other Desktop machines for years and years

when I reinstall Avast on laptop is there any special thing I gotta do to disable Defender, or turn off, so Avast will work properly

Thank you

Hi
When Avast is installed, Windows Defender is automatically 'disabled'
