Did you do this and then reboot
I suggest to download the latest full update package from here and apply it. The "Fix" button should work then.

It looks as though there may have been a broken VPS which not everyone received  but, downloading and installing the latest VPS with a reboot seems to work

I have not experienced this myself

I do not know if this will help, but I noticed that I had an update to my computer– I had to do a safe start, uninstall Advast and do a re-install

UPDATE: I'ts working today!
  Yesterday I did uninstall from CPanel... ran Ccleaner.... reloaded Avast... got update..... shut down this morning it is working.. seems ccleaner must have cleaned out the problem... hope so.
