RejZoR, I just reported two problems you mentioned in your video:
  • OO-2688 - Missing focus for tabindex in Uninstall screen (not visible index in uninstall screen)
  • AV-11990 - ASW_NOTIF_RELOAD_IPM event does not refresh IPM elements (causing not refreshing ACTIVATE button in main window)

Also, we will change submenus a little, not according to your designs, but I believe you will like it more.

And I have to add one more thing, in your video, menu looks so empty, because you are not installing all components. When you install all of them, you will see that there is not that much space.

Not everyone will install all the components so the space still needs to be utilised better.

Which basically underscores the request for a resizeable user interface (smaller as well as larger) to compliment the users choice of installed components.

The avast installation setup file allows the user to choose what type of installation - Recommended, Minimal and Custom. The minimal is just two shields File System and Web Shield, so that would be pretty light on space requirements.

The thing is, things need to be organized differently. Shields crammed into same panel as on-demand scan is just very bad design decision which frankly looks horrible. This needs to be separated from the rest of tools. And access to Virus Chest also needs attention. People expect easy access to it and they (like me) often forget it's there in tray icon menu. It needs to be on front interface.

I'm not expecting exact design per my comments, but I've raised the issues and I hope you guys will implement or redesign them well.

@ Be Secure,

Maybe you need to do a repair ???
Unless this is only a problem in your version of Avast. ?? I use the Free version without  this problem.

Smart Scan should Replaced by quick scan in Anti-virus menu and Make statistics more user friendly.

I don't see the point in that, given that the Smart Scan is quicker than the "Quick" scan.  The Smart Scan is even quicker if you have removed some of the components that it would scan.

So there is no quick scan anymore ?
BTW I am not a beta tester.

No one actually said there is no Quick Scan, in the text I quoted it stated "Smart Scan should Replaced by quick scan in Anti-virus menu." This is a suggestion, one that I'm not in favour of and why I commented on that suggestion.
