Avast blocking scanner files being saved
« on: November 16, 2020, 10:22:09 PM »
About a week ago I ran the network scan for the first time and it showed my router software was out of date.  I made no changes at that time.
For the last three days I have been trying to scan some documents and my scanner always gives a "unable to save scanned files" error.
This morning Avast again popped up to do the network scan and I realized that the only changes made to the computer before the scanner problem arose was the Avast network security scan and whatever it had done.
How do I reverse the change that is blocking my scanner files being saved?
