Avast preventing restart when restart after update
« on: November 04, 2019, 10:34:34 AM »
Today there is an update on my avast and avast require me to restart the computer in order to install the update, and then i click restart now on avast application then windows starting to restart but "this apps is preventing shutdown" screen appear and its said avast preventing shutdown and i click shutdown anyway and computer begin to restart and turn on again, avast application running just fine. But i am curious is it fine when i click shutdown anyway ? I am afraid when i clicking shutdown anyway i am force closing avast while they installing the update and made my avast broken/corrupted. What do you guys think ?

This is "this apps is preventing shutdown" screen i talking about

I am using Avast Free

When you get asked it's already updated but some changes need a reboot.

I see. So they apply the changes when my computer turn on after restart. Correct?

I personally wait and allow Windows to close the program and restart on it's own.
