Bug in Croatian UI :

-Smart Scan
-Add-on with bad reputation (WOT)
-Skip this step
-Nothing shows like Finished Scan or something like that

No problems with English UI.

hello I found something in this new version after a clean install:
1/ unsecapp.exe is constantly running (since v19 was released) although Browser clean up tool is not installed (unsecapp is required for it to function according to avast dev long time ago)

2/ No PUP scan option in the new UI for File Shield or Core Shields. It's still available in the old UI though
It's also available exclusively in Virus Scans menu

3/ when choosing Hardened mode aggressive in the old UI, the hardened mode box in the new UI will be unchecked. It's only checked when HM is set to Moderate

4/ Warn when downloading files with poor reputation (web shield) is not functioning

thank you

Hi,

ad 3) Hardened mode was in fact always moderate

I believe this was introduced somewhere around avast 18.6.xxxx as to avoid this on my XP system I had to go back as far as avast 18.5.xxxx and install that.  You find the Behaviour shield does call for it to be loaded. To confirm that switch off the Behaviour Shield and reboot and see if the unsecapp.exe is still running.  This is not a solution or a workaround, just confirmation of the shield responsible for running unsecapp.exe.

See my post https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=220639.msg1484900#msg1484900 and there are lots of other comments relating to unsecapp.exe running.

I'm still waiting for the update of 18.8.xxxx, the last version to support XP/Vista.

Well, it works well. That if we except the error of https by firefox, (because that error is still in this version).

It would be great without the error of https, but otherwise without problems. Let's see when that https disaster is fixed, now it's less protected for those of us who use firefox.

Well at least for the rest it works well. No problems for now.

Update Avast Free 19.1 to 19.2 went well. I have to say I have not suffered the Firefox https issues blighting some users posting here.

On the downside. I see the useless, unwanted and unselectable Sensitive Data Scan is a fixed feature within Smart Scan. I assume complaints about this over past months and sucessive updates have fallen on deaf ears within Avast. Smart Scan is no more than a marketing teaser for paid components. I will continue to treat it as such and avoid.

Has the USB disk grabbing problem (unable to eject) been fixed in this version?


Edit/Addition:
Just had a look at Software Updater. GUI has changed and the big green arrow no longer appears if all up-to-date, which was a excellent visual cue. This is now replaced by button to do a Scan for Updates. But scan was performed to get here, bit confusing why this button is now here on the results page. See screenshot.

Please, for the love of all that is good an holy in this world, remove the @#$% pop ups within chrome web browser for the password extension.  I mean seriously?  I am browsing a page, and all of a sudden a new tab opens, pushing your password extension in chrome?

Spam-ware.  I mean I get that I am using the free-ware at the moment but seriously?  This only started after the latest program update.  I did go in after and silenced alerts.  I dont mind the pop-ups with the free version at all.  This is overboard.  Kill this shit.

I have been a loyal avast subscriber for over 15 years at this point.

Type the following into the Search window: geek:area

Geek:area does not have the same Action seetings as were in "old settings". e.g. Repair>Move to Chest> but do not delete.
Auto would do Repair>Move to Chest>Delete in that order.
Luckily "old settings" are still available (for now), but the crude choice of 1 action only and no action tree in geek:area is far inferior to what is(was) available in old settings. I do not see how it will be possible to replicate settings as above in geek:area gong forward.

As for Smart Scan components in geek:area, there is no tick box to select/deselect "Senstive Data scan".
Not surprised.

The controls for setting up a scheduled scan are still missing in this version  - 19.2.2364 (build 19.2.4186.404).
I tried the geek:area and old settings, but they are not there. I realize that I can create a custom scan on a schedule, but that's not the point. I want the old "scheduled scan" settings back for all scans.

@Asyn, thank you for the reply. It took me a few minutes to figure out you had just edited those 2010 posts so I figured it was worth a chance to click on the appropriate entry, esp since I could recognize the English descriptions (thanks for that!). However, when the Save File confirmation window came up, it identified the file as "from: http://iavs9x.avg.u.avcdn.net" not "https:...", even though the link you provided started with "https:". Did I choose the wrong link??

I just installed the latest version, 19.1.2364, which I thought (hoped) would fix the ability to change the scan time set two versions ago.

The cog wheel and the time of that previously set scan no longer appears under "Full Virus Scan," but that time that I no longer want still remains, hidden, somewhere, The latest update did not remove any previously set scan times, nor is there an ability to change it or delete it that I can find.

I found that out tonight when I set a new custom scan to occur prior to midnight, only to have the set time from two versions ago kick in at 1:30 a.m.  I thought no cog wheel and/or evidence of a previously set scan time meant any previously set time was gone so we can just set up a new custom scan.

I have looked through every possible option where scans are involved, and find no place that shows that previously set time, nor how to delete or change it.  It is alive and well, but hidden somewhere out of view or clickable edit.

So right now, I had to delete the new (earlier) custom scan time so that I don't run two scans within two hours of each other.

So, back to the drawing board, please.

Can we just have the cog wheel back that shows the time when you hovered over it, but with the ability to click the time or the cog wheel so we can just change the set time of the scan that now seems to exist but is hidden away from view and edit?

Or if it is not somewhere editable under the SCAN section, can someone tell me where I can find the hidden set scan time previously set two versions ago so that I can change it, or delete it and then set up a new custom scan?

Thanks.

I recently updated to 19.2.2364. Ever since doing this, the install of Additional Boot Scan Definitions for a boot scan is now taking forever. It used to take about 1 minute, maybe 2 at the most. Now it takes 20-30 minutes or more. I believe the delay is on the Avast "cloud" side. I am seeing this on different PCs, all running Win10/Pro/64. There is nothing wrong with my LAN and my WAN download speeds approach 100mb/sec. Once the definitions finally download and install, all else works fine. If I'm right above, others should be seeing this.

Note to Avast: your verification text characters are often IMPOSSIBLE to read and your "listen to the letters" option doesn't work.

Or if it is not somewhere editable under the SCAN section, can someone tell me where I can find the hidden set scan time previously set two versions ago so that I can change it, or delete it and then set up a new custom scan?

Thanks.

I am also waiting on a fix for the missing scheduled scan settings that used to be in prior versions. See https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=225096.msg1493722#msg1493722. I first noticed this issue in version 19.1.2360 and posted in that thread at the time. It seems that this new version still doesn't have the fix baked in.

I just installed the latest version, 19.1.2364, which I thought (hoped) would fix the ability to change the scan time set two versions ago.

The cog wheel and the time of that previously set scan no longer appears under "Full Virus Scan," but that time that I no longer want still remains, hidden, somewhere, The latest update did not remove any previously set scan times, nor is there an ability to change it or delete it that I can find.

I found that out tonight when I set a new custom scan to occur prior to midnight, only to have the set time from two versions ago kick in at 1:30 a.m.  I thought no cog wheel and/or evidence of a previously set scan time meant any previously set time was gone so we can just set up a new custom scan.

I have looked through every possible option where scans are involved, and find no place that shows that previously set time, nor how to delete or change it.  It is alive and well, but hidden somewhere out of view or clickable edit.

So right now, I had to delete the new (earlier) custom scan time so that I don't run two scans within two hours of each other.

This is the 2nd time my computer crashes when i download avast products. I have premium clean-up, VPN, online security....Had them installed a year ago, they were working well. When I bought “driver update” and installed it, my computer crashed. It cost me $200 to fix.
I tried to return all products, avast only refunded me for the latest (less than 30 days). That was 3 or 4 months back. I wasn’t happy and didn’t re-download any avast products on my computer.
Last week I decided to reinstall all products and my computer crashed again so I'm done with avast. No more!
ALSO NOTE THAT YOUR CUSTOMER SERVICE AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT TEAM SUCK – THEY ARE BOTH SUCH A WASTE OF TIME – I SPENT HOURS WITH THEM OVER THE PHONE, THEY COULDN’T TELL WHAT'S THE ISSUE. AVAST IS AN ABSOLUTE WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY AND YOU GUYS DON’T CARE ABOUT YOUR CUSTOMERS – ALL YOU CARE ABOUT IS MAKING MONEY – SHAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have the new version on a Windows 10 64 bit machine.  I can open the interface, go to the protection section but the only scan I can run is the Smartscan.  I can configure a custom scan but not save it or ececute the scan. What is the trick to executing a scan other than the Smartscan?

Thanks for the response.  I had tried that before and just to be sure just took those steps again.  Nothing changed.  Each screen for setting up or selecting scans looks appropriate but I do not see anything to click or check to actually execute a scan.  For instance when creating a custom scan I can select any of the options involved but the scan is not saved or if I set a specific date and time the scan does not run, nor is the named custom scan saved for future use.

The other option is to get used to the new settings. You do that for your Operating System and many other things.
You can currently select the Custom Scan which by default starts with the same settings as the Full Virus Scan.
The Custom Scan can be scheduled just as you want.

There was no indication in the Avast system tray icon of the shield not running.

Can't run Full Scan.  If I choose "Protection" then "Virus Scans" I can only choose "RUN SMART SCAN" or create a Custom Scan.

I think I found the solution after WAY TOO MUCH time on this problem, which should not have been a problem to begin with.

If you hover over "Run Smart Scan" under "Custom Scan," to the far right are three vertical dots.  Left click on those dots for a pull-down menu and select Settings.

From there, you can change the "scan name" to whatever you want it to be.

Then click on "scan type" and select "Full Virus Scan."

Set your frequency and time, and any of the other options to your preference.

Click "Back" at the top left, and you should now have a full custom scan set up as a daily scan (or your frequency of choice).

To test if the "Smart Scan" would show up again as a relentless default, I disabled Avast by unchecking "Enable Self-Defense" and then ended the Avast process via Task Manager.  I then restarted Avast, and my "Full Virus Scan" remained exactly as I set it up to be.  I then re-enabled "Enable Self-Defense" again.

I have not rebooted my system (which I will do in the morning), to see if the settings stay put as I set them, or if that single "Full Virus Scan" custom scan reverts back to "Smart Scan" as a relentless default.

If it does revert back, I will post again.  But for now, the full daily scan kicked in as it was supposed to, as I set it up an hour before the full virus scan time "I" wanted it to scan at.

FYI:  If you check under the main window of "Virus Scans" while the scan is running, you will see that the Custom Scan to the far right is active while the scan is in progress.  The "Full Virus Scan" option to the far left will not show activity as it used to be in previous versions.

What would you expect to find in a support forum. 

Those who aren't having any problems are hardly going to register/logon to say they aren't having any problems.  When there are many millions of avast users, with innumerable different programs/OSes/setups, then you are likely to see some issues.

Bob, under Custom Scan, there is initially a single default option that appears named "Run Smart Scan."  That is the name input by the program of that one initial Custom Scan that the program sets up.

By selecting the settings for that single default CUSTOM SCAN (Run Smart Scan), various things can be changed to become a Full Virus Scan, as I originally detailed.

So now I no longer have one Custom Scan named "Run Smart Scan" (that I didn't put there).  I now have the daily Full Virus Scan that I have wanted, and have control over once again.  I no longer have any (default) Custom Scan named "Run Smart Scan."

My settings stayed intact when I turned on the computer this morning, and my daily Full Scan kicked in like it's supposed to, just as I set it up.

So, yes, "under Custom Scan," changing the settings of what the program sets up automatically as the single Custom Scan (Smart Scan), works perfectly, and it's running like clockwork as I type this post.

Well, while I now have the daily Full Virus Scan setting that I want (as I previously laid out how to get it), the "old time" of the daily full virus scan setting from two versions ago still exists.

Two hours after "my" preferred time ran the daily scan, the "old and no longer wanted" time kicked in.

So, right now, I am forced to keep the Full Virus Scan at the time I set up, but then I have to cancel the Full Virus Scan that runs two hours later because the latest version did not erase what once was, if my computer is still on.

Very frustrating.  I want the "old" scan time setting GONE GONE GONE.  But there is no way to achieve that because it remains hidden in the dark untouchable recesses of the program.

Preventing access to an old time setting makes no sense at all.  When something works, why break it?

So, right now, I am forced to keep the Full Virus Scan at the time I set up, but then I have to cancel the Full Virus Scan that runs two hours later because the latest version did not erase what once was, if my computer is still on.

Very frustrating.  I want the "old" scan time setting GONE GONE GONE.  But there is no way to achieve that because it remains hidden in the dark untouchable recesses of the program.

Preventing access to an old time setting makes no sense at all.  When something works, why break it?  [Bolding mine]

@ -Midnight,
The only way to get off the beta version is to do a clean install.

If your Avast settings are not the default settings and you want them restored after the Clean Install, follow this before removing Avast.

Can I install this version without uninstalling the Beta?  Sorry I see you already answered my question

No because you'll retain your beta status.
Right now there isn't any difference between the last beta and the current release.

Keeping in mind that if/when Program Update settings are set to "automatic update" the beta channel updates the installation automatically without prior notification. As well I believe(?) backend modifications can occur unannounced on the beta channel

Just found my Windows10 machine with an Avast splash screen saying we have just updated to 19.2 and did I want to install Chrome etc. I had 19.2.2364 build 429 before and the change was to build 430. So why the automatic update and splash screen?
I was totally taken back as I have automatic updates turned off, so do not expect any program updates to be implemented automatically at all.

So what is going on with automatic updates occuring when they have been turned off in the UI ?

Note. This "automatic" Avast update to 19.2.2364 (build 19.2.4186.430) coincided with a Windows10 update which required a restart tonight.

I believe this was a bug fix that (occurring in a VPS update), hence only a small incremental update in the build number. So not a full program update, which your manual program setting would have worked.

For the update to actually take effect it requires a reboot, this obviously occurred after the windows update required/initiated reboot.

Hi Bev, as you've so many questions, it's probably better to start your own new topic.

I need advice. Suddenly my Avast premium doesn't work. No firewall and passwords. Can't even log on to my account. It say "Loading...this shouldn't take long", nothing happens though.

Thanks in advance

Again, like about a year ago, Avast Internet Security, after the update on 02.06.2019, computers on the local network became inaccessible! In this case, the Internet works. Support does not respond. On a working computer - Windows 10, on two other Windows XP, files are stored on one, a printer is connected to another, for which Windows 10 does not have drivers. Now I do not have access to my files or print. Full paralysis. Thank you very much Avast, you are the best for my money!  I wrote twice in support, no answer! :-\

@pavelbulava,
If you have Avast Firewall on Avast Internet Security and you are using the computer on your office or home LAN (i.e. not on a Public network) then check the Firewall is set to "Private". Default is fail-safe to "Public"which is more restrictive.

Hi
The Avast GUI is the Program "User Interface"

You can "Right Click" on the Avast Icon in the Bottom Taskbar and choose 'Open Avast User Interface' at the top.
The GUI will open. (See attached Screenshot)
Once opened then go to Menu/ Settings/ Troubleshooting and choose "Repair" (See Screenshot)
As Asyn stated, follow instructions :)

So has anyone noticed the Avast UI window is extremely laggy when moved around the desktop? Try grabbing the window and doing little circles with the mouse and you'll feel what I mean. I thought at first it was something to do with my setup (recently added a G Sync monitor) but it is also present on two other PCs that just had windows clean installed on them.....

Kinda strange its happening on 3 separate PCs all with different hardware configs

Edit- should probably add they are all Intel/Nvidia systems with Windows v1809. I have an Intel/AMD laptop with v1803 and avast doesnt experience the issue im referring too. And that upon opening the Avast UI It takes around 5-7 seconds of spinning before the slowdown occurs. Now who is going to sit there and spin a window for 7 seconds during actual use.... but still figured Id point it out if others were experiencing it too.

For me I would say moving the monster AvastUI out of the way is a pretty reasonable action, as for dragging it round in circles, not so reasonable.  I would also love to be able to resize the monster UI (my pet hate) and relocate it permanently so I don't have to resize and move it again every time it is opened.

Well I'll just throw my ?cents worth in while we're on the subject

The Avast GUI development has been IMHO their weakest element>  Design, Color/s, Size, Not Resizeable, Glitchy, Resources used (just kills my XP when Initiated).
Just my opinion from my experiences with other Security Software over the years. :)

I have the same experience and it even kept moving after I stopped moving my mouse, although only for a second or so.

Yes Avast is aware of this issue. I have sent logs that were requested.
I have the same issue "at times" and does take a Reboot to clear it.
I have been informed it appears to be some kind of "Deadlock in the GUI".
The cause is unknown as of yet as the issue still appears on both my Win 10 OS's
This issue has been plaguing me since mid-December 2018 :-\
