Silent Mode turns itself off every boot
« on: May 08, 2024, 02:23:12 PM »
I am using Avast for years on my current computer, always in Silent Mode.

Since about 1 week ago, Silent Mode started to disable itself every time I boot my computer (I have to re-enable it and then it stays active until I stop the computer).

Is there an issue on my end or it this a bug in the latest Avast version?

Same here.  Have always been able to set to silent mode and remain on silent mode even after a restart/reboot.

Avast stated they found a bug and will fix it pertaining to this issue.

Confirmation in this post.
Hi again, this problem should now be resolved in new micro update 835. Silent Mode will remain selected after reboot.

Wait, did you need to do an actual reboot for it to work? Does a power down / power up not count as one?

I just did a proper reboot due to a Windows update yesterday and now it appears to work as intended...

After a program update it is best to do a system restart for changes to be applied/become effective.

Ordinarily you would get a notice to restart.

The highlighting in the quote is mine.
