Unable to start the Avast firewall
« on: September 28, 2020, 04:35:53 PM »
Using the latest application and virus vault of Avast Premium Security and the firewall has decided to go AWOL!! PC suddenly takes longer to boot, disk runs at 100% for 25 minutes while I investigate but come Hell or highwater, I cannot fix said issue.

Windows 10 and now having to use Windows Defender in all its glory! Read various suggestions and loaded Malwarebytes on recommendation - ran and it found malware!!!!!!!! How much do I have to pay out to Avast to stop malware?

Hi Rednose. Thanks for the advice and I have used Malwarebytes to identify and remove the malware but the issue remained. I have since restored the pc to an earlier point and this seems to have done the trick(for now)

Thanks again
