Avast troubleshooting settings
Disable/enable avast self-defense module
Avast is one of the most widely used antivirus applications. Many users who had previously installed Avast on previous versions of Windows did so on Windows 10 — some of them later changed their minds and migrated to Windows Defender, but that’s another story.
However, even though Avast Antivirus is completely compatible with Windows 10, some errors can occur. In this post, we’ll go through the most popular problems that users have identified, as well as the solutions to those issues.
It’s worth noting that after installing the new Windows 10 update on their computer, Avast Antivirus users often encounter BSOD errors. This issue arises as a result of incompatibilities between Avast drivers and certain CPU models.
If this happens, you’ll most likely see pop-up messages in the lower right corner of your screen saying stuff like “Windows Protector and Avast Antivirus are both switched off” or “Windows did not find an antivirus program.”
To find errors causing security issues and slowdowns, run a PC Scan with Restoro Repair Tool. The repair process will replace damaged files with fresh Windows files and components after the scan is completed.
How to fix avast ui failing to load error – the easiest way
Activity Shield keeps an eye on the programs on your computer for irregular behavior that might suggest the existence of malicious code. Select one of the following options from the drop-down menu to configure how Behavior Shield handles suspicious program behavior:
Script Shield prevents potentially malicious scripts from running in browsers and other applications. This includes online and outside-source attacks, local threats downloaded to your hard drive or cached in your browser, and scripts originating from encrypted connections.
To determine which browsers and applications are covered by Script Shield, check or uncheck the appropriate boxes. By default, all browsers, Adobe Acrobat Reader, and other applications on your device are covered.
When running almost every program in fullscreen, Do Not Disturb Mode works to silence unwanted alerts. Configure these options to configure device behavior when Do Not Disturb Mode is on, and to improve the performance of fullscreen applications. With the exception of the following, all options are available by default:
There was an error while completing the setup process
Both Core Shields have been disabled for the time being. When the required time period has passed, the Core Shields will automatically reactivate. Follow steps 1-2 above to manually activate all Core Shields, then press the red (OFF) slider until it switches to green (ON).
The sensitivity of the Core Shields can be changed from the default Medium sensitivity. High sensitivity enhances security while also increasing the risk of false positive malware detections. Low sensitivity decreases the risk of false positive detections, but it can also reduce the Core Shields’ effectiveness. To adjust the sensitivity of your Core Shields, do the following:
All programs and files on your hard drive are constantly scanned by File Shield as they are opened, run, updated, and saved. File Shield detects malware and prevents the software or file from infecting your device.
Incoming and outgoing email messages are scanned for threats through Mail Shield. Only messages sent or received using mail management tools like Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird are scanned.
Fix: avast antivirus won’t open (quick fix)
An anti-virus environment that scans connections that use the SSL security protocol is the source of the problem. Since SSL creates a secure link, it adds an extra layer of security to connections that should already be secure.
Kaspersky can search encrypted connections between Postbox and your mail servers, including IMAP/SMTP over SSL. Kaspersky will intercept your email connections, insert itself between Postbox and your mail server, and secure the “last mile” of your communication with its own certificates. Postbox will complain about expired certificates as a result of this.
By adding Kaspersky’s SSL certificate to Postbox’s list of exceptions, you can recognize it as legitimate. Kaspersky can search your mail on their own servers, allowing you to use the full range of Kaspersky security software features without limitations.
By editing the settings in Kaspersky Internet Security 2018, you can disable the mail interceptor. Start Kaspersky Internet Security and go to the bottom of the application window to the Settings icon. Select Network in the Additional section of the Configuration pane. Scroll down to “Encrypted connections scanning,” pick “Still check encrypted connections,” and then select “Manage exclusions…”
