Home network security is not working on windows 10. I can't even stop it (Stop button isn't working).
I hate the new UI, this beta is quite poor and boring because there is no any new malware detecting and preventing features. I don't need in Passwords and Safe Zone features at all.

Don't know if it is working properly in XP either. Previous version of avast 2233, the Home Network Security scan was very quick. The 2016.11.1.2234 Home Network Security scan is taking an eternity, spinning outer core but progress indicator appears to be stalled.

As mentioned Stop does nothing. Looks like I will have to kill avastUI.exe to stop this scan. Self-defence module disabled and it took name end processes in task manager to eventually kill avastUI and the Home Network Security scan.

I can see this Iconised UI being a lot of hassle, when trying to explain how to find things to users.

Avast Free broke a few hours after install (System lockup), had to remove via safe mode......

Im gonna skip this Beta on my real system for now and keep it in a VM only.

Cautiously optimistic from the windows 10 build 10547 land

Installed OK

No flashy white screen :)
No hang on reboot :)
IE works (yet to test Edge) :)
Shutdown still to test


Scans are still as fast
Safezone appears to work

EDIT :  Edge appears to be OK as well
I will now give it a multi-boot/reboot work out :)

Thanks gents
Multi reboots and shut downs showed no problems :)

I not like interface too.
Why need to change images, when need to add more and more features? New interface is not new feature - this is more questions where I can find that I have early...

For now only the Main page and sub-pages have changed, the settings are exactly the same than in Avast 2015.

Its basically the sidebar moved to the top and a new start page for the status, its not that hard to get used to it :)

I can't even install the Beta. Totally locks up my system. I'm back on the last stable release.  :(

now that has direct feedback from avast interface can report problems more easily however I have a doubt will be for the beta or final release version will be maintained this feature? I hope that the final version has this feature that can facilitate and life of the User and also the avast team :)
