Few months back Avast 6 released with AutoSandbox technology and WebRep plugins for browsers, and these two features got more hype, but a little useful feature wanted by lots of users gone unnoticed is addition of “Reset now” button in Avast 6 (all versions). This button in the Troubleshooting section of Settings allows users to reset Avast Settings to their default values.
Restoring Avast Default Settings
If you’ve made a lot of changes in Basic and Real-Time shields in Expert settings and can’t remember what you’ve done, Avast 6 allows to restore its default settings, but all customization of the program will be gone and this cannot be undone.
1. Open Avast User Interface.
2. Open Settings>Select Troubleshooting section on left hand side> on right side click Reset now button under Restore Factory Defaults.
