Avast should keep its own corporate identity and colour scheme.

God NO, not metro, I hate those ugly tiles, this is possibly the one thing that many really dislike. Avast should keep its own corporate identity and colour scheme.

I think now it's time to change the background entirely dark (which avast has little at moment) and give some little orange color(which currently we can see mostly in the GUI). At the same time by giving the metro look to the GUI will definitely make premium look.
Symantec uses those colors. Please no flat ugly metro garbage.

There's a heck of a lot of us out here, plus non-avast users, who seriously question equating (or even associating) metro with "premium look". Sorry if some feel this is wandering a bit OT.

I like the avast GUI.  It's a refreshing change from my previous AV (Norton).  As suggested by others in this thread, I too think the shields could be included on the Summary screen.

My $0.02

PS: No Metro, please.

All of the other forums I'm a member of have the option to change the theme color.  Would be nice if Avast had this option.  Black and orange is too Halloweenish.

midnight this thread is about the GUI, where not discussing forum theme colours ::)

If you want to change your theme click on your profile then look and layout, you'll see theme options there.

Im not sure if this has been noticed before, It is purely cosmetic, But when you maximize the window, the top of the buttons appear to be cut off, As you can see in this screenshot

I don't know if this has been brought up but the sounds in Avast are very loud compared to the system sounds on my computer. I had to disable the voice and automatic update sound because it startled me when I first heard it. Is there a way to adjust the volume of these sounds?

They're not any louder than anything else for me. I don't think there is a volume setting but simply on or off.

1. Make the avast orange ball more crystal like like the 2 following pictures :

http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2011/110/e/8/avast_icon_by_ssvlad-d3e17tf.png or http://icons.iconarchive.com/icons/tribalmarkings/colorflow/256/avast-icon.png

The second one is blue but you can make it orange and sort of glass like.

2. Display program version and date of updated database whenever whenever the user mouseover the orage icon.

3. Return back the ability to skin.

When you are working at those very small icon sizes (easy when your example image is 317 x 323) I guess it is hard to have too many effects, especially when you have to have a different icon for the rotation effect for scanning. Also for the other icons, with the ! in yellow triangle over the avast icon and the one with the white X in Red circle over the avast icon.
