That's strange. What version of Windows and what was the update?

The same thing happened to me and I can't find any documentation in the vast Avast web presence. Look guys, if you're going to drop something like this shouldn't you document it and give users a chance to adjust?
I made extensive use of the Avast password manager and now can't access an export function to extract my data. Not cool!

Without details, your complaint is meaningless.
I'm running windows 11 insider preview build and still have the Avast Passwords working.
Give details, what version of Windows, Avast, etc.
