Can you link me to the full uninstaller and instructions?
Did a full uninstall and a clean install and still have two AvastUI.exe running.  Are we sure this isn't normal?
I believe Lukor said that it is normal.I also have two AvastUI.exe in Task Manager.

@Dumi86
Thanks for Full Installer links.
Can you link me to where he said this?  I can't find it.

The first AvastUI.exe instance is main GUI application, the second instance is for displaying web-content inside GUI (main page) or for popups with web content.

Thanks everyone, is there any way to make it one instance again?  It's not a huge deal if not, I'm assuming it's not using any more resources then it used to and it's just another instance splintered off to prevent crashing or such things.  Steam recently did something similar.

I just don't like the idea of "Poups with web content." sounds like a way to allow some obtrusive advertising.

When you click on the Account tab within the avastUI you get another window open - this is for your my.avast.com information.

So I can't see you being able to just run one instance and how would you know which instance was doing what to be able to try and stop it. Not to mention the avast self-defence module would most likely object.

The same is true of other instances when you get another window being opened by the avastUI.

So two should be running at all times however if you go to the Account area a third one starts, is this correct?

If you go to my.avast.com using your browser, no, there won't be another avastUI.exe as your browsing is handled by the main avast scanning function avastSvc.exe.

The two are running and as mentioned they handle different tasks if you want to go to your my.avast.com account from the avast GUI. When you click the Account tab in the GUI, the main GUI avastUI.exe would open another window - this is handled by the second instance. It doesn't open yet another one.

I guess so (2015.10.0.2214) though I don't know how this might be corrected; possibly an avast repair to correct out of sync information.

When I go to the account tab in the avast UI on the left hand side a third AvastUI.exe opens up, is this normal?  I just want to make sure, I don't think anything is wrong with Avast, I'm just worried about the install somehow messing up and not getting protection.  The third AvastUI.exe goes away if I leave the Account tab in the Avast UI.

Please post link for full installer.
I don't use stub installers.That is my rule.

What is a "stub installer?"

I can't check this right now as I'm on my XP Pro system and this dual avastUI.exe doesn't occur.

I'm sure I have nothing to worry about, Avast tends to be pretty hasslefree outside of my own paranoia.
