windows 7 action center
« on: October 25, 2011, 08:15:45 AM »
Hi, clean install of windows 7 64 bit, I turned windows firewall off, whenever I boot pc action center say both avast and windows firewall report they are off. if I stop and start avast firewall action center sees it, but avast reports it's on all the time so action center is not reading it?
any ideas? thanks.

You could try a repair of your avast-installation over the control panel. Please reboot your PC after that.

If that fails, I suggest an installation from scratch:

1. Download the latest version of avast! Uninstall Utility and save it.
2. Download the latest avast! version and save it.
3. Uninstall avast from Control Panel (if possible). If, for any reason, you can't run it, try booting in Safe Mode and doing it from there. Anyway, boot after that.
4. Run the avast! Uninstall Utility saved on 1. If, for any reason, you can't run it, try booting in Safe Mode and doing it from there. Anyway, boot after you've run it.
5. Install avast! using the setup saved on 2. Boot.
6. Register your free copy or add the license key for Pro. Or even upgrade your key from old versions.
7. Check and post the results. If, for any reason, you did not solve, try doing the step 3 in Safe Mode anyway.
The best things in life are free.

Hi guys thanks for the replies, it seems to have fixed itself, just got in from work and its ok, I didn't want to start rebuilding repository as it's a new install. all seems fine thanks for the replies.
