Action Center Win7 inform Avast is not running
« on: May 03, 2012, 03:17:20 AM »
Avast 7.0.1426 running perfect. All tickers are green. Despite of this, I have the flag icon with a red "X" informing avast is not activated. Any idea how to solve this? Just a Ctrl+alt+del? Restart?

Well, maybe you need to boot twice.
Maybe you need to check your system time and date and also https://support.avast.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=580
Microsoft released a fix for it: MS release a fix for it (http://support.microsoft.com/mats/windows_security_diagnostic/).

Run command line as admin:
net stop winmgmt
del C:\WINDOWS\system32\wbem\Repository
net start winmgmt

winmgmt /verifyrepository
winmgmt /salvagerepository

Tks - Your suggestion is saved, if necessary. As I didn't have a "time and date" problem, I tried a simply restart. And this time, a simple RESTART makes the difference. Everything runs all right.
