I am using Windows 7 and have installed Avast antivirus. I received error message which says “Your system is not protected. I press on “Fix” button but could not fix then displayed the red x and it says as given below.
Your system is not protected
Please tell me how to fix this problem.
Unsecured Avast Antivirus on Windows 7
To fix it you could click on the fix now button but usually it does not work. If it is not working for you than there are a few steps you could try.
Click the right button in the system tray on the Avast icon, then select “Avast Shields Control, select “Disable until Computer is restarted”
Restart the Computer
If that is not working for you than try the following steps:
From Start Menu search for "Run command box" and type “services.msc” (with no quotes)
Attempt to “Start” Avast Service if it is stopped as Avast reported and be sure that “Startup type” has been set to “Automatic”.
3. Than restart your computer.
If you still have not been able to solve this problem try this:
Download and than run "Avast Uninstall Utility" in safe mode.
After you uninstall it, install the newest version of Avast and than register your free Avast copy.
