Avast stopped working shows "unsecured"
« on: May 07, 2010, 04:00:59 AM »
My Avast has stopped working and I can't get it do any thing. Under the SUMMARY tab is states "unsecured" and gives me an option to "fix now". When I click it nothing happens. There's also a button that says "start program".....when I click it nothing happens there either...also tried "update engine and virus definitions"....NOTHING...

Anyone have an idea what is going on here? It almost looks like it's not licensed anymore.....

 I have version 5.0.507

Are there any specific areas that are shown as unsecured ?

I don't know if this will help, but avast 5.0.545 has just been released, so try a manual Program Update.

Several other members have also had this problem.  Try a hard reboot.  

If that doesn't work, do as David suggested.

Edit:  FYI David, see last post from Igor
