The update option for programs is set to "Ask after update is downloaded" but i have to open the update settings to see the thext next to the update button that a new version is available. There is no popup message which a user would expect to see if he has explicitly selected this option.

I see an improvement, but some bugs remain FYI. The help popup sections were initially expanding okay, but when i get to Behavior Shield settings and clicked the help, they were again collapsing right after being expanded just like the previous beta. Plus the initial opening help popup is too small and needs to be expaded a little bit manually. I suggest looking at the size of the main GUI and making the help popup load at that same size. There are resize buttons at the edges of the settings screen, but it can't be resized down, only up. This hides the OK and Cancel buttons for 1366x768. When you have more free time you should make IMHO a separate settings for each component accessible right from a settings button right next to the component button itself which will also match the theme. Shields are now activating okay after being disabled. The notifications issue is still here. Animations and fonts are not exactly smooth, but these are minor problems which i guess you will fix for Release Candidate. I'm still not sure if it's by design that the default exceptions from the stable version are missing in the file system exclusions like the Pagefile and so on. It is good that you added all the components to the protection popup, but you should also move the current available ones to the top and leave a little space and then have a bottow row of components not installed, this will make the distinction more clear. The elements sized are OK but the padding is too large. More rows can be created by reducing it which will allow a distinction blank row. Clicking on the not installed elements does not show informative screens so add them. The HTTPS problem with loading sites in Chrome disappeared at the middle of the previous beta and is not in this one either.

Okay so what exactly is the difference between the two attached images? One is for AMSI and the other one for regular detection? One is for behavior blocker and the other one for regular detection? Clicking on any of the options shows the same alert after 1 second. Clicking on block in addition shows the second popup in the bottom right and again then shows the first popup. I want to send the sample which triggered the popups. Avast doesn't ask for a restart because it can't clean it, it just pops up these messages. If someone from the Avast team wants to run it and see why these popups are appearing after clicking any of the fix options post here.

Thank you developers for you hard work! Running smooth so far!

One question/comment: Why is Behavior shield not included in "minimal protection" package? It's one of the components needed for virus protection, no?

Why not give me the choice?  It is no different from the webshield, etc...

I was referring to setup process. When you choose Minimal protection, Behavior Shield is not checked (only File and Web shields).
Of course whole setup is modular so you can make up your own package. I just thought Behavior Shield should be in the Minimal package.

Ah ok.  As long as the custom option still allows people the choice on what to install.

From what I can tell, the IDP module almost doubles the ram usage from using just the file/web shields.  So for those that want a very small footprint, they may not want the added overhead.

Not sure how to confirm if it is related to Avast, but I have 17 svchost.exes currently running since installing this beta.  Doesn't that seem like a lot?  I don't remember having so many prior.  I guess maybe I will uninstall Avast and see how many I have running.

Yep, that's quite a lot. (I've running 6 here.)

I don't think it is Avast.  I just uninstalled the beta, rebooted, and now I have 19!  lol  Weird.

BTW - what version of Windows are you running that you only have 6?  I am running Windows 10 Home 64bit.

Also, other than my complaints about the GUI that I mentioned earlier, the program seems to be running well.  It will be one of my favorites.  The GUIs color scheme is actually growing on me a bit, but still think it is too large, and don't understand the 5 second load time.

The Behavior Shield blocked too many normal apps. NVIDIA Share.exe, runonce.exe, OneDrive.exe, iCloudDrive.exe, etc.
The "minimal protection" it is very important.

You should make a topic about this so they can fine-tune it. Include files :)
