Seem to have a problem with Avast anti-virus procedures. The computer occasionally displays a warning message that I have to restart the computer. Can you provide a simple solution an explanation for this warning.

I note that there a problem reported with a recent update of version 4.7.826 of Avast, and that a complete re-install was required. Could this be the same problem!.

hmmm... I only get the "Your System Must Be Restarted" message after a program update...

What operating system are you running?

The restart message usually only appears after significant program updates, though it's not always necessary. There's nothing wrong it's just doing its thing.
Some people posted about problems encountered because of 4.7.826, though it didn't appear to be very widespread and I didn't have any problem with it. Alwil did however issue a new update 4.7.827 almost immediately, perhaps as a reaction to users complaints.

I think you have given the answer to my question. Not being completely use to the workings of Avast (confirmed AVG user), all seems to be coming together now. Thanks again.

Ticked as resolved.
