Repa,
Turned on the computer today, and hovered mouse on avast or ball icon, and got the "your sustem is not fully protected" balloon. Usually after I do any updates, etc. on the desktop, and by the time I'm finished, the avast shows that my system is secured, but, not today.

I had a bill to pay so before I did anything else I wanted to know that Avast was indeed Secured. When I oped up Avast it showed that all was secured, all the updates were current, all shields were on. I did not see anything else that I could check to see what is causing it to say that my system not fully protected. So, I decided to turn the computer off, and so after it being off for 30-45 minutes, I turned it back on. This time Avast showed that my system was secured.

1) I suppose I'll need to uninstall Avast and reinstall it again. What do you say?

2) If you say reinstall can you kinda refresh my memory on doing that? I know I'll be without AV protection while reinstalling it.

3) I am thinking that I installed Avast from majorgeeks site?

4) I thought I had a note on doing this procedure saved on my desktop, but, I must have deleted it during the Reoad thing. Sorry for the inconvenience.

WC, if you just booted your computer up and checked that, you may have not given it enough time to initialize, especially if it was doing a virus update during the startup. If, after you see the orange ball in the system tray and more than 1-2 minutes have passed and it still gives the indication that the system is not secured, you may want to consider reinstalling.

Repa,
I was checking the orange ball all during the course of time that I was updating, and checking things on the desktop, plus I left the room several times during that period. Yeah, it was definitely more than 1-2 minutes. All told, I'd guess it was a period of at least 10 minutes. I feel that it was sufficient time for the system to fully come up.

Man, I hope it stops saying "not fully protected". I sure don't want to have to do that uninstall-reinstall again so soon.

WC, go to Add/Remove programs and click Change/Remove for Avast. This will bring up a panel that will give you the option to Update, Repair, or Uninstall Avast. Click the Repair option, follow any directions and prompts given, and see if that fixes your problem over the next couple of days. If not, you should uninstall and reinstall Avast.

Repa,
Thanks, I forgot all about that feature of Avast. I'll give it a try.

When I turned computer on today, it was showing that my system is secure.

I'll let you know if it works or not, after several days.
