Private<—>Public Profile Issue
« on: March 10, 2020, 12:11:05 AM »
I just updated my Avast Premium Security to the latest version 20.1 and now the Network Profile option in Protection->Firewall settings is stuck on Public. The arrow tab will not slide over to the left. I had the same issue with the previous software, where the arrow slider would immediately revert back to Public network continuously. Now the arrow remains locked in Public setting. I was hoping this latest release fixed this glitch but apparently in my case it has not.

Have you restarted the computer? If a second restart still makes no difference,
try a repair.

Repair Avast:
Open the Avast User Interface > Menu > Settings > Troubleshooting > Repair App. > Restart the Computer or,
Control Panel> Program and Features (Add/remove program)>Select Avast> Select Repair. Reboot when completed

No luck on the restarts or the repair. Does anyone else have their network profile(arrow slider)stuck to the right on Public?
