Could you elaborate what seems to be slower? Is it UI or scanning (PC)? Does it concern launch or rather response time, copying files?

In my case it's the time it takes avast to launch after startup which causes the delay and keeps the PC sluggish until it starts.

Installed Pro edition on Win7 SP1 64bit using online installer, got a BSoD while installing. :(
After reboot I found avast installation broken, repair nor normal uninstall not working.
Uninstalled using avastclear, reinstalled and so far no problems.

My problem with UI not showing up on clean/upgrade install on previous beta seems to be fixed now.
This beta is running OK :)

Hello all,

I just discovered a possible annoyance with this new beta. I am running Win 10 x64 on a wireless laptop and this screen pops up periodically. I saw it 5 times in the last 24 hours and I was only on my laptop for a few hours and each time there was a different "offer" at the bottom (circled):



Anybody else getting this pop up? Is this a new form of advertising perhaps?

Thanks,

gus

Your image link doesn't work, it isn't displayed. I believe it is because the url inside the img tag needs to be wrapped the url tags

Code: [Select]
[img][url]https://s31.postimg.org/6he81jlez/advert.jpg[/url][/img]


EDIT: No that isn't it you need to investigate the correct url at your image site to display it in a web board.

It would actually be easier to attach the image to your post.

EDIT 2: Having seen your image by another means, this has been there for some considerable time, the lower quarter of the UI screen in the free version has always had some offer or ad of sorts.

This is much more preferable than screen popups.

General Machine Bootup for the Windows 7 32bit system, mind you i'm mostly on my machine with 8 Core processor, so maybe it's always been that slow on the Intel Atom 1.6ghz, 1.5gb of ram, 160gb hard drive, In General slowness opening programs, bootup, and such,   (unless the hard drive starting to go in that model) then probably will have to have shop replace, as it seems hard to remove it and replace it on that model.

@DavidR: Thanks for your advice; however, I can see the image just fine and that is the way I've always posted images to this forum. Now, given you were the first to complain, I will look at the other options in the future. So, I just used the hotlink for forums 1 option. Can you see the image?

images hosting

Here are all the available options:

photo uploader

BTW, the Avast pop up just activated again. You can see the highlighted icon in the screenshot of the task bar. this is happening too often and occurs more frequently than any of the previous versions where a small pop up window appeared. This thing is huge!

@DavidR: The pop up is not in the lower right corner of the screen. It is dead center and huge (as shown in my screenshots).

As you can see from my attached image of your post not only couldn't I see the image, I couldn't even see the link to the image.

I can see the images in your Reply #21, so that worked with the forum link.

What you are actually seeing is the full avastUI being displayed - this shouldn't happen - with the lower 25% of that screen having an offer/ad.

What we need to do is resolve the avastUI from appearing periodically. I think I can see why, in the top right corner of the avastUI you have 'Sign in' and that may be why the avastUI is popping up like this. Try linking this installation to your my.avast.com account (sign in).  If that doesn't resolve it then try an avast Repair.

gus,
the whole Avast UI showing up randomly is a known bug in this beta and it was mentioned in the known issues in the beginning of this thread. It is definitely not a new form of advertising. We will fix it before this release goes to public. Sorry about the bug and thanks for the report!

And this has been reported by many users at the forum and directly to avast team, none of which is even mentioned in this and  past few beta versions and avast keep on saying "we are working on it" are you   :(

Code: [Select]
https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=187676.0

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The fix for this issue is present in this beta (12.2.2275). If it persists in your case, please let me know!

@drake127

Seeing this in the event viewer log:

Source: SideBySide

Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\setup\iplugins\IStats.dll". Dependent Assembly Avast.VC110.CRT,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="2036b14a11e83e4a",type="win32",version="11.0.60610.1" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.

Looks like there is some lingering dependencies on the older VC110 assemblies still in the beta. My understanding is that these have been removed in the new beta:
