The status window is not resizeable and can't be maximized. Is there anyway to change this?

I don't us it in IE since it requires it's own toolbar which is a total waste of precious space.
Hope that's addressed soon. :)

Avast Online Security plug-in does not play nicely with IE10. Also, a downvote for 9.0's 'Win 8 style' UI, horrible 2D blandness and big ugly scaled buttons and fonts. Yuk!

On plus side, seems to work normally in FF24 and all settings seemed to carry over from 8.0

Hi.  The new version seems to be working well for me.  This is not a big problem, but I am curious if there is a way to disable the green/yellow/red check marks that show up next to search results in Google, Yahoo, and etc.  I know this was possible in older versions.  I dug around in the new interface and in the settings for the browser plugin and did not see any way to disable the check marks.  I am wondering if I am missing something obvious and figured I would ask about it.

Thanks.

AVG went down the pan pretty quickly around the time of the Link Scanner debacle. I don't know why AV persists with the nannying.

There certainly is a way. :)
Go to your add/remove (Program and Features) function. Select avast! then select Change. From the drop down menu unselect Browser Protection.

Once the operation completes you'll see the following:

Very easy once you know how. :)

Should you change your mind simply reverse this procedure.
Once you're informed that the module again want's to activate, allow it
Then, close your browser restart it and you'll be back in business with the avast! Browser Protection:

Why does Avast 9 only have three shields?

Why does Avast 9 only have three shields?

From the FAQ: http://www.avast.com/faq.php

The number of real-time shields in avast! 2014 is reduced by merging some of them to another. The P2P Shield, IM Shield and Behavior Shield are now a part of the File System Shield, while the Network Shield with Script Shield are a part of the Web Shield.

Congrats to the Avast team on the new version. I have been trying to use 1483 because , the later versions seem to have an issue with the wireless adapter, choking it. Is the issue solved . Thanks!
