How about this  :o

This is probably what hulk uses  :P

Comodo 2013



The point here is, Avast UI is already nicer but can be made finer and a little bit Windows 8 interface friendly for Windows 8 users only. It might be a sore for non-Windows 8 users if its for all windows versions.

After viewing a number of GUI screenshots from different Security software, whats with the GREEN color used by many of them. I think they all want to look like Kasperski :P
I have to say at first I was somewhat taken back by Avast Orange, But now have come to truly like the use of existing colours(Orange, white and Dark Grey) in the Avast GUI. :) ;D

I think the colours are just file (as you can probably tell from my screenshot) as avast are trying to maintain their corporate identity (colour scheme).

Just removing the (ugly/badly antialiased) rounded corners on the current GUI elements could make wonders without much effort.

Hello,my dear friends!
i've got 1 suggestion: to add pop up when usb flash drive was plugged in: "USB flash drive was plugged in. Do you want to scan it for viruses?
- quick scan
- full scan
- do not scan"
and checkbox: do not ask about it
Do you like it? or not?

May the FOSS be with you!

Not a bad idea, i think this feature could be quite handy, include the option to auto scan the external device when plugged in as well ;)

I also like this idea. Not to have to open the flash or look for the letter to scan with Avast! explorer.
