(Resolved) Browser closes just before completing Launch
« on: January 25, 2021, 10:13:55 PM »
I've never experienced this in my testing.
I've been on the beta channel with 2 machines for quite some time.
Today I find on one of my machines that ASB begins its launch only to close just prier to launching. The second machine ASB is launching.

Decided to try a reinstall; I used the Browser uninstall tool and reinstalled ASB (v.88.0.7791.97) but still doesn't want to launch,
Don't know whats up as it was fine this morning and I have not manually changed anything. ???

Edit: I'm pretty sure the Browser just updated to v.88 on both machines

Did you also use this tool when you did the clean install?

Avast has offered a separate tool to totally remove the Secure Browser if the above instructions don't work.
You can find that tool here, https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=230288.msg1531315#msg1531315

Thanks Bob, I save useful links as I follow topics and not sure it was what you are linking to above, I'll give it a try as the Browser isn't working.

Edit: I've never used the .bat file so hopefully
