« on: August 28, 2019, 02:40:02 PM »
Hi Avast Forum Team, i just wanna ask about my avast free lately on the new program update i notice every 2 - 3 days my avast free always ask that you need to restart your avast in order to fully protect ill attach the screenshot, it is somehow annoying avast free always ask about restart but there is no update on the program itself. Is this a bug or something? Thanks In Advance

Not seeing that on my win10 system with the latest avast! free 19.7.2388 (build: 19.7.4674.494) version. 

Your reported version has a different build number build: 19.7.4674.524), I don't know if this is because you have different components to me, mine is very much a minimal installation and I don't use the Avast Secure Browser (ASB).  There is a possibility that you have a component or the ASB that has been updated and requires a restart to be completed.

Another possibility could be the emergency update check, but if this is the case then I would have expected to see this to.

If I recall, there are a couple of other topics in the main Avast Free Antivirus / Premium Security (legacy Pro Antivirus, Internet Security, Premier) forum relating to a restart required that you might want to browse for.
WinXP ProSP3/ Core2Duo E8300/ 4GB Ram/ avast! free 18.5.2342/ Firefox ESR, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro7.11.0/ DropMyRights/ WinPatrol+/ Drive Image 7.1/ SnagIt 10.0/ avast! mobile security
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 19.7.2388 (build: 19.7.4674.526)/ WinPatrol+/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro7.11.0/ WinPatrol+/

Try here (as DavidR suggests):

It is possible what you are seeing is related to the general Avast Premium Security update.
Windows 10 Home 64-bit 1809 Avast Premier Security version 19.7.2388 (build 19.7.4674.524) UI version 1.0.402.  Formerly called Avast Internet Security

Just seen notification displayed on UI asking me to do a Restart.
