First of all, I would like to say "thanks" for making such a great, free anti-virus program. :)

Okay, I installed avast! 4 today (after uninstalling avast! 3) and everything is working great. However, a little while ago I went to look at the On-Access Protection Control window (I double-clicked the tray icon) and a dialog came up asking me to enter my password. Why is that? I was never asked to put in a password at all. I tried leaving it blank but it still said that the password was incorrect. I tried changing the password, but still, "You didn't enter the correct password." ... It wasn't doing this earlier today.

Okay, so, how can I
1.) Reset the password?
2.) Disable password protecting the program altogether?

I have no idea why it's doing this, because it never asked me to input a password in the first place.

I'm using Windows XP Professional, in case you need to know.

Thanks in advance for the help. ;)

Oops :o, this should never happen.
Unless you set the password, the program should never ask for it.

Does it keep happening after reboot?

If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.
