Just did the update for the Free Edition, and the main GUI has changed for the worse.  The shortcut icons are gone, replaced with one option: Run Smart Scan
<snip>

Click on the Scan Icon and you will see the scans available.

Thanks, I see it now.

If the shortcuts we used to see on the main screen are gone, I guess all I can do is hope they see sense and bring them back.

You're welcome.

I can't do anything about the front page as an avast user like yourself - do I like it no.

What in the world is this? I installed the Avast 2016 Free Edition and it shows me this? I did a clean install of Avast 2016. Previous I had the stable version of Avast 2015.

Also it shows me internal server error when signing in to avast account via GUI. Signing in to avast account via website shows no problem, but it still shows me that Home network security is not installed and give a red colour and also on my name MyName - HP it says unknown. I reported this issue few times and still not fixed. By the way, about the internal server error i already gave the feedback via gui. Hope Avast team reads it.

Edit: Signing in to Avast GUI works now, but there's a problem that i reported few times and still not solved. You can review it by one of my support ticket. Ticket number is #BYU-790-31187

Updated xpSP4 via GUI and the upgrade from 2015 went smooth but took some time as my Comodo was very active.
Now I'll play around and see if all works.

Mine updated but still has the beta tag. Should I do a clean install?

Just did the update for the Free Edition, and the main GUI has changed for the worse.  The shortcut icons are gone, replaced with one option: Run Smart Scan
The customizable shortcuts was one of the best features of the previous version.

I've attached a screen shot.  I can't find a way to launch the Software Updater.  I only see it under Settings, which is not the same thing.  I've right-clicked all over the place to see if the main GUI is customizable, but it doesn't seem to be.

So, I'm not sure what the point of this update is.  Should I uninstall and do a fresh install?

Thanks.

Run Smart Scan is all you need to do - I think telemetry will show it's all most users do.

Looks OK so far.

Two issues:
1) Seems to have duplicated all of my devices in my online account.  Weird.  Licenses don't show duplicates, but I have dupes of every device in the device list.

2) Don't know where to access the scan history.  I liked that tool in the older version.

Positives:
1) Quick update was glitch free.

2) Interface is attractive and responds rapidly.
