Antivirus and Action Center

So my Action center flag at the bottom popped up with a notification that said, "fine a program online." I have avast up to date and on, it says it doesn't recognize any programs. It just started happening. I have had avast on here for about 2 months. It happened last night. OTHER than just turning off that feature, why isn't it recognizing it?

Its a known bug that when you do not use Microsoft Security Essentials, your AV is not recognized. Why you did not have a problem to now, I cannot answer. But, many have turned off that warning. You are protected.

It is my suggestion, not because of this problem, but because it is one of the best for Windows, use Microsoft Security Essentials.

Avast program is at 5.0.677 as of right now. So if it's not up to date to that version, I'd update it through the program update from within Avast.

If it's completely up to date, might try going to Avast in Programs and Features, and click on it, the window will come up. Pick "Repair", not uninstall. Then do what it says, might have to reboot. See if that corrects it.
