  1. Has anyone had problems with free ProtonVPN and Avast Security? I ask because I recently swapped my old Mini Mac for a newer version and decided to download Avast anti-virus., which I hadn’t used before. After doing this I found I couldn’t activate Proton VPN. Proton said it wouldn’t work with certain anti-virus systems. But having deactivated Avast, I still can’t use Proton VPN.
    Any suggestions?
