Free Avast keeps deactivating
« on: February 08, 2020, 12:07:28 AM »
Free Avast keeps deactivating on my HP laptop running Win 10 Pro version 1909.  When it is in this state I can not reactivate Avast (Windows Defender has taken over).  The solution is to reboot the laptop and then Avast is working.

Is there any logs I can provide in hopes of correcting this issue?  Thanks

Have you tried a 'Repair' of your Avast installation?
Go to Menu in the GUI and select settings then troubleshooting and finally "Repair App" :)
