Avast 6 asks for password
« on: February 24, 2011, 06:22:31 AM »
I updated today to Avast 6 and when I go to settings, disable, or silent\gaming I'm asked for a password. I've been using Avast for about 2 yrs. and I don't recall ever setting a password or ever needing one. Has anyone else had this problem? I wish I never hit the button at this point I can't disable Avast for a download for Open Office that I'm having a problem with error 1606 and I can't get it to load and I need to disable Avast to allow the download. I've about had it. Can anyone help? TY :o

Sorry guys but you must have set a password and suffered from amnesia afterwards.
Nothing wrong with engaging gaming mode or turning it back off in both the free version and IS.

No problems here, neither.

If you did not set a password, are you sure someone else did not set one for you?

The first 2 are probably spam entries just to get signed up.
We'll find out eventually.  ;D

sorry to disappoint you, you insignificant being
first : why the hell would we lie?? it's not like we wanted this, ever thought of that (oops sorry, you can't think!)
second : I'm not the only one with this problem or are you saying that mg67 is also a liar (who clearly isn't!)
third : if you know everything, why haven't you got us a solution?? (seems you don't know anything after all!)
fourth : we clearly don't have amnesia, you dip****, I think someone would remember if he/she had set a password (maybe you don't because you don't have a brain!)
fifth : someone who hasn't had this problem doesn't have the right to say bad stuff about us (saying that we're "spam entries just to get signed up" certainly is bad stuff!)
sixth : didn't it ever occur to you that we had this problem around the same time, both happened when we updated to avast!6 (talking about someone who didn't do his homework! (cough pathetic cough cough))
seventh : why the hell am I talking to you?? it's not like someone as
simpleminded as you could understand me!
well don't have any hard feelings now, okay ;D (ironical).

Pax vobiscum.

A complete avast uninstall/reinstall would solve the problem I guess (possibly also including running aswclear in safe mode - not sure, I've never tried)

geety6,
That kind of attitude doesn't fly on this forum.
If you still haven't remembered the password you originally entered,
Follow mag's advice:
Uninstall- reboot - use the removal tool, reboot again and then reinstall.
After you've finished reinstalling, either use a password you can remember or
even better, don't use that function at all.
Enjoy avast! and have a great day.  :)

Bob don't argue with idiots as that reduces you to their level!  ;)
As they have amnesia they won't remember anyway.  ;)

the two first posters are possibly one person  who came here to find out how to disable Avast on a friend's computer ;D

No, not really. Their two IPs reveal they come from different continents of the world.

Well, this can be achieved quite easily. ;) (I don't say, that they did it, though.)
