Avast Browser doesn't launch
« on: January 26, 2022, 05:42:42 PM »
When I open Avast Secure Browser it just flashes and then nothing. I have followed the instructions under FAQ but I still have this problem. I went through Avast Free Antivirus when istalling it again. Earlier today I used the browser without any issues. I'm running Windows 11 Version 21H2 (OS-version 22000.434). What can I do to get the browser running as normal again?

Maybe it's time for this?

Clean install of the Secure Browser:
Maybe it's time for a clean install of the Secure Browser
Download the installer from here, https://www.avast.com/en-us/secure-browser
Download the Secure Browser Removal tool from here, https://download.avastbrowser.com/avast_secure_browser_uninstall.exe
Save your Bookmarks via the Book Marks Manager if you have custom bookmarks
so you can import them when you re-install.
Uninstall Secure Browser via Programs and Features - Reboot
Run the removal tool, reboot, run the installer import your favorites if you saved them.
A video to help with the installation: https://youtu.be/r_VLA0HMLQM
Report back if that's solved the problem or not.
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
