Avant options keep reverting to default settings

Post by alanuk » Sat May 27, 2017 10:14 pm

Every time I close Avant Browser it loses my settings and reverts to default so that when it restarts I have to reset the skin and all my options again. On one occasion I got an access violation message from Windows 10 but it didn't stay on the screen long enough for me to read it. Any ideas?

If you use online storage you could try to log in with a new/different account first, see: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=35097&p=200368&hil ... ne#p200368

Otherwise you better export your bookmarks first and then rename the .default folder or totally uninstall Avant and reinstall it.

I guess you never made a back-up in Avant itself? Tools ---> make Backup/Restore Profiles
