Auto-restart
« on: October 21, 2019, 11:13:23 AM »
Besides turning off automatic updates or uninstalling Avast (which at the moment is tempting), is there some way to stop Avast from automatically restarting my computer?

Never heard of such an issue before...

- Which Avast..? (Free/Pro/IS/Premium)
- Which version..?
- OS..? (32/64 Bit..? - which SP/Build..?)
- Other security related software installed..?
- Which AV(s) did you use before Avast..?

1. Download Avast Free Antivirus: https://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_free_antivirus_setup_offline.exe
2. Follow instructions: https://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility (Run this tool for all prior installed Avast versions..!!)
3. Reinstall Avast with the downloaded installer from point 1.
4. Reboot.
