My avast right context menu not showing
« on: January 13, 2023, 04:28:02 AM »
Hi,
     When I tried to scan files using right context menu avast, it was missing.
I tried reset settings and it could not help.
I also tried repair avast. How do I restore it.
without it I could not scan by right clicking.
Why it was missing

Sounds similar to another poster's problem from March last year so might also be fixed by my suggestion which worked for that:-

Glad to hear my suggestion worked.

But as to the cause.........who knows? A weird, intermittent AVAST issue but how to stop it happening again - no idea.

If anybody has any insight on this I'd be interested to know myself.
