I believe this is incorrect:
When turning updates to "Ask...", main UI shows "Turn off" instead of "Turn on".

This is a bug. I'll report it now.

Not sure if this isn't actually the right thing to do, if you turn off auto update on the VPS, you don't get streaming updates.

I notice my image is slightly different the Status tab changed to Yellow and an exclamation point (!), the tray icon also shows the ! (with yellow triangle) superimposed. The FIX ALL resets it back to Auto.

And yes the Turn OFF needs changing.

Yes, I have it turned on. I was just experimenting ;)

Wrong.

Those taking part in the beta testing are on the beta channel, so should another beta session be started, you automatically get notified of the 'update.' You can only remove the beta branding in the UI by installing the non beta channel regular release, or doing a clean install.

I choose my AV for the protection it offers.

Hi,

No reply on my previous posts regarding the GUI scaling on HiDPI screens (4k, 5k etc.). Any comment from the developer that they are at least working on this GUI bug would be appreciated. It is not only about the protection that Avast offers, but it is about the whole package if you ask me. Looking at the pic, you can understand my frustration when I scan something and can't even see the scan results properly.

Hi guys,

I'd like to open a new thread regarding the "skin" of the new Avast.

I have seen various discussions about it scattered around the forum, but it's a bit difficult to get a grasp of it. In general, I understand the feedback tends to be negative, but I'd like to understand whether it's related to the size of the UI, the layout of the navigation, the color scheme, the font, the speed, ... BTW One thing that we focused on improving were the flows, i.e. making the various tasks much more bullet-proof and user-friendly. I think we delivered on that one, but I haven't seen it discussed anywhere.

So, can you please be a bit more specific in your feedback? Besides RejZoR's suggestion on how to reorganize the menu bar, I haven't seen much except for adjectives like "awful", "unprofessional" etc which don't really give much insight at all.

We still have some time to shuffle some things around, although obviously what you see is pretty close to what the final will look like.

Thanks
Vlk

Mainly the Color (looks horrible) and the Size of the Main Window (can not be resized, but the Settings sub window can be)
And it does take just a bit too long to open on some computers.

I also liked the old UI more. And what's even worse: I always hated software that gave me the feeling to work with a free or trial version by displaying "Upgrade" buttons on the UI. Now, avast Pro is doing the same although it is already a paid version. This is really annoying! This should be removed, paying users should not be bugged to upgrade to anything, this is ok for free versions, but not paid ones.

I open chrome after a new install and days of computer fix-ups, and a robot voice declares I have viruses... even thought i have avast working overtime to protect my computer... and so i open avast and all i can do is look at this stupid interface with no clue as to what to do except be a robot and let them do what THEY think should be done to my computer and probably nothing to do with viruses. I am faced with "RUN SMART SCAN".. Just make the interface useable please. I am sick of it. Would avast like to tell me what time to change my underpants too? How about listening to users for JUST ONCE PLEASE!

And criminals... please go get a life in some garbage dump and leave peoples computers alone....
