Title: UI problems since a recent update
Post by: jackguy1554@gmail.com on February 16, 2017, 05:54:50 AM
Recently the Avast tray icon has been missing stopping me from running scans, i can see the Avast process still running in the background and windows isnt freaking out telling me to turn it back on so it appears to still be there, when i click the desktop icon to try and bring up the UI it then shows the tray icon again. Unfortunately when i try to open the IU using the tray icon it stays open for about 3 seconds then closes and creates 2-6 tray icons then goes back down to one shortly after, every time closing the UI.

Some google searching turned up nothing though i may just be bad at wording searches.

Win 10 64bit
Avast free
