Avast Keeps Turning Off Screensaver
« on: July 10, 2020, 11:46:13 PM »
Third time now, Avast updated and I found my screensaver turned off.

What's up with that behavior?

And again, repair apparently did not fix the issue.

- Which Avast..? (Free/Premium)
- Which version/build of Avast..?
- OS..? (32/64 Bit..? - which SP/Build..?)
- Other security related software installed..?
- Which AV(s) did you use before Avast..?

I've also been getting this issue for several months now.

I am on what is still a brand new computer (built in August), with a (then) brand new install of Windows 10 64bit and fresh Avast (free) install. I also had this issue on my previous PC (Win 7 64bit).

Avast has now disabled my screensaver on this PC at least three times. It seems to occur each time there is a new version of Avast requiring a restart; possibly other times as well, but I'm not sure.

It just happened again within the last few hours, and no other programs have updated, so it can only be Avast.
