Maybe I spoke too soon now it seems everything is working except there is still a gray area in the tool box shield control it does not say they are on.  Will see if it works for awhile later have to go now maybe it is fixed hope so.  If not I will be back to get some more help. thanks again
Those instructions are meant to be followed in order.
If the Repair does not work, then the next step would be a Clean Install. :)

That was ... interesting. The Wi-Fi Inspector stopped working. Going to it, it was always showing the result of the last working scan (which I closed each time, so it shouldn't have been going back to it), and closing it and asking it to scan again, the scan opened and the scanning animation started, but it just remained stuck at 1% and never showed anything on the network, and cancel just caused an endless cancelling animation. Oh, and while - when it is working - it finds the laptop, router, Android phone and television, it doesn't appear to be able to see my Kindle.

The Wi-Fi Inspector problemmight have been triggered by some of the Firewall settings changes I'd been making while trying to nail down some firewall bugs and/or bad design I've run into while finding why it wouldn't allow Miracast (and no firewall settings should trash the Wi-Fi inspector); and it only started  working again after I uninstalled the Wi-Fi Inspector module (then had to reboot), then reinstalled it (and had to reboot again) while also changing some of the buried Firewall settings again (shouldn't have done them both at the same time, so left me unclear exactly what got it going again). Not exactly robust design.

This Firewall business ... OK, maybe only a minority of Windows 10 (and 8) users ever want to screen mirror to a Roku box (or other screen), but it shouldn't take settings hidden in the 'Old Settings' or the 'Geek:area' - and settings whose avowed purpose is something different, and which open a potentially dangerous vulnerability at that. Using the Miracast Connect feature of Windows 10 might be something only a few users do, but the Firewall should allow for it properly: this is a real mess.

Will avast ever repair that we have the possibility of more than one explorer scan on every reboot.

Maybe I missed it.
Did we ever get a definitive response to whether "AvastClear.exe" is still needed when doing a Re-install/Clean install given the 'Clean goodbye' in  stated Release Notes for 19.6.2383 version..... or Not? :)

Well I think we could benefit from a response from Avast.

Ok, thanks for the update. However Minecraft PE version 1.12 can no longer be played over the Lan.
To fix it I deleted and placed new rules but this did not help.
I removed minecraft, removed the rules and did a re install of minecraft. I set avast to ask about the acces and let it create new rules. Did not work.
Changed the rules manually to allow just about anything stil a no go.

Disabled just the avast firewall, everything runs fine. Log shows nothing of blocked traffic at all.

What is going on? I used avast and minecraft for years with different versions without a issue.

Set your avast firewall settings to Private.  Reboot to enable the new setting to set.

Did you just update your avast installation?

This version keeps giving me a popup about the new features. No matter how many times I close it, it turns up again the next day. VERY annoying.

This assumes you are using the free version.

If you open the UI.
Then go:
Menu>Settings>Troubleshooting
Then hit [Add/Modify Components].
Only select the Components you really need, as some listed may result in more pop-ups.

Hello I used Avast Free - latest stabil - and Firefox - latest stabil - web browser and the browser  settings GENERAL part: Fix Firefox says "Your browser is being managed by your organization"

I read that, this causing by Avast.   What is the reason for this?
