Default Re: "New Device" appeared in File Explorer

It depends upon if you want address the issue of unknown device.

If going back to 2nd shows the registry hasn't been done, subsequent Avast updates will rectify that.

I don't know Win 8.1 so don't know if you have any control of which updates are installed, but being selective in which of Windows Updates you allow to install may ID what could have brought about this unknown device.

Each Windows update will create its own restore point prior to installing so you will be able to revert if you are able to ID whichever it is.
