After installing Avast Internet Security on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and rebooting, it told me my system is not fully protected.
When I open Avast it shows the firewall is turned off and i can't start the service or turn it on.

thanks in advance.

Maxim.
i tried updating mine! and works just fine! ;D

You need to turn off your window firewall first, and then turn on the avast fire wall.
Because both firewall can be crash if you try to use both of them.
After turn on your avast fire wall, and take a look its function correctly.
then turn on your window fire wall again.
if there are some problems using your window firewall, you should choose which fire wall you want to use.

I was actually just able to get the "repair" function to fix the issue.
Lucky you. Thanks for posting back.

I too have been able to re-start the firewall after the suggested repair action. Thanks very much!

Have you tried avast repair and reboot?

For a repair of avast. Windows, Add Remove programs, select 'avast! Anti-Virus,' click the Change/Remove button from the pop-up window, scroll down to Repair, click next and follow.

did it work?

Worked for me! I had to click uninstall first. Then Avast uninstalled asked me to repair or remove. I selected repair, restarted my PC and the firewall works now!

Seriously,  ???
Your reply is to a post that's 10 Years old and is not relevant now;  there have been "several OS upgrades" since then as well as several new versions of Avast since 2010. The conditions are not the same as today.

A repair of your of the Avast installation can resolve many issues.
