What to do when Avast won’t open on Windows 10?

Avast is a free, widely-used antivirus program known to Windows users to help them protect their devices from malware and malware on a daily basis. Lately, however, Windows Defender is much better than before, and many users, including myself, have just switched to Windows Defender, but today we’re talking about Avast.

Some users complain that Avast does not open on their Windows devices, and that deliberate attempts to open it did not cause Avast to crash or open at all. After many attempts by users to solve the problem, it seems that Avast doesn’t work at all.

What are the reasons Avast doesn’t open in Windows 10?

There are many different reasons not to open Avast, but the reasons are usually different on each device. There may be behavioral problems or conflicts with other applications that may prevent Avast from opening or running.

The two main reasons why important Avast program files are usually not opened are when important Avast program files are corrupted during an update or other action, or when the Avast service does not start automatically, or when another service or program prevents the Avast service from starting automatically.

Before we begin fixing Avast, make sure you are on the latest version of Avast antivirus if you don’t update it first, and only continue with the following solutions if the update hasn’t fixed your problems.
