Is this picture the "alarm" you get?
Does the Avast icon look normal, and spin when files are scanning?
Windows 10,Windows Firewall,Firefox w/Adblock.

Don't Panic!

Before you try doing anything else.. Shutdown Your Computer - & - Start Up Again!

This Should Hopefully Fix Your Problem  ;)

Sometimes, Windows Security Center stop recognizing your antivirus or firewall... So, check your system time and date and also http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=23457.msg193534#msg193534
