'System' app showing up in my Rules list. Help. Is it malware?
« on: January 29, 2024, 10:11:12 PM »
Hi..can anyone help me please? I'm new to Avast. I've downloaded it and am going through the rules section. Most seem fine or can be looked up, but I have a really weird app in the list called 'System' with an icon that doesn't look right, writing in Chinese (I think) and no file pathway listed. So it looks bad to me. Any thoughts or ideas? Thanks

Oh that's a good idea, thanks. I did it but comes up with letters and words I don't understand. It is definitely not supposed to be on my Windows PC I don't think:

Is this related to the Firewall, out of curiosity?
