  • If at first you don’t succeed; call it version 1.0

That's strange.
The usual questions would include: Does anyone else use the computer?
How long has Avast been installed?
Is this a recent problem, ie: have you been able to open it in the past?
Windows 10,Windows Firewall,Firefox w/Adblock.

If you've forgotten the password, I suggest an installation from the scratch:

1. Uninstall avast from Control Panel first.
2. Boot.
3. Download the latest version of Avast Uninstall and use it for complete uninstallation.
4. Boot.
5. Install again the latest avast! version.
6. Boot.
7. Check and post the results.

Tech, greetings.
Where is this PW seen ?  I was never asked to type one nor to enter one.

It is in the avast icon right click menu, see image.

If you can't recall setting it or remember it the only way to resolve the problem is a clean reinstall as Tech shows.

Are you logged as an administrator?
Does anybody else could log as an administrator in your computer?

You asked a question and you got a picture and an answer ;D

I also expanded it for the benefit of the original poster.
