The main UI did NOT open for me again today, even though the Avast Scan History shows the scan completed successfully with "no virus found" status.

Perhaps after a few runs it stops displaying?

My system has been running 24/7, doing these scans now every morning at 6am, for a full week.

Avast UI still opens after a scheduled scan completes.

No new software was installed before I updated from 2014.9.0.2018 to 2014.9.0.2021, so only Avast was updated and could be causing Avast UI to open after a scheduled scan completes.

Nah, it opened again here this morning. 

It's clearly intermittent.

I did a fresh install of v. 2021 and it works as it's supposed to with no problems (UI does not open up after scan).  Have you tried a Repair or a fresh install if you find this too annoying to live with?

After trying a repair and eventually a uninstall (including avast_clear.exe in safe mode) and reinstall, I found that on my machine the opening of the UI after a scheduled scan happened when the next scan completed, but on another machine it didn't happen until the third or fourth scheduled scan completed.

It would be nice if a developer from Avast could comment on this.

So that's what's happening?

I would also like this "feature" to be removed or made optional. I have my Avast set to perform different scans at certain times of the day and I only really want notifications if and when it has found something.

Having it working away in the background suits my needs fine. It's certainly the case that if I'm on one system I am almost certainly doing work and having the UI pop up is an irritation.

The Screensaver scan should fit your needs. :) avast! is one of the options when you select your screensaver. :)

The Avast UI opened again for me this morning.

Of the 9 days on my current bootup, I left the system logged-in (just screen-saved) overnight 7 times.  Of those 7 times, the Avast UI popped up after the scan 5 times and the scans completed without opening the UI 2 times.

I have this problem too. I don't know if it's related but in addition, a couple of scheduled Quick Scans ago, the windows also said Threat Detected! Clicking the 'details' button had no effect. However the scan history showed that no threat had been found and there was nothing in the Virus Chest. I mildly panicked and ran Malwarebytes, but that didn't find anything. I then ran another couple of Quick Scans and both came up clean, as did the following scheduled one. Just an aberration?

I have heard from a few people I do computer support for that even with Silent/Gaming Mode turned on the Avast UI opens after a scheduled scan completes.

I'm personally puzzled as to why so many scans are needed and scheduled ???
Once the system is clean, the shields and on-demand scanners have you back.
Do you really have that much extra time on your hands for almost daily scans ???

Not everyone shuts their computers off, Bob, and many prefer to have their systems use the time when not being used interactively to ensure their computing experience remains optimal.  That's the time for backups, disk maintenance, scans, etc.

With a bit of tweaking of the settings, an Avast scan can be much more thorough than the shields.

Some might wonder how an avast! Überevangelist could stand not to do daily scans...  Maybe even hourly.  :)

Ah, I should probably have been clearer.

I have Avast set up to do a daily scan on systems when I know I'll be using them. I don't tend to leave my systems idling for very long so I have Avast doing a daily Quick Scan in the background while I do my work (and a Full Scan approximately once a fortnight). Because of this, the screensaver scan isn't really ideal because I hardly ever see the screensaver :)
