 Both reported off, while Avast in taskbar says I'm protected (running).  I checked setting and found Windows enabled Windows Defender where I had it turned off.

I would suggest a 'Repair' and 'Reboot' of you Avast Installation. Open Avast UI and go to 'Menu/Settings/General/Troubleshooting/ Repair App

I will, did it yesterday but maybe it missed something. The repair I did was uninstall/repair so this repair is done differently.

Added: I did the repair and it shows Avast on in setting now.
