This issue started with Avast not being recognised by windows, claiming I need to turn it or Windows Defender on (choosing Avast does nothing) while Avast still appears to be functional on it's end. After looking it up I was suggested to try in the CMD
Rather than getting that it's consistent or inconsistent I got
WMI repository verification failed
Error Code: 0x80041002
Description Not found
Following this trail lead to also seeing hundreds of DCOM 1084 errors in the event viewer that started apparently 7th Oct (15 days ago) that I never noticed. After looking around I think the WMI/Repository is to blame but i'm don't trust myself to blindly jump into something I didn't know existed until a few hours ago. Another note is that another site suggested I try system restore before this started. While I can system restore before Avast started having conflicts. I can't system restore before the mass DCOM 1084 errors in the event viewer started. Infact they started an hour before the last System restore point I have if that means anything.
I've also checked to see if my hard disk was dying (it's fine) and scanned in safe mode with Malwarebytes which turned up nothing.
I don't know where to approach this from or even what to do if I knew what was wrong mostly since other places where I look that share symptoms appear to be cases where the system won't boot at all or is suffering many crashes/unresponsiveness Currently my system runs fine aside from the Action Center not acknowledging Avast.
Help would be vastly appreciated.
