Why didn't Avast fix the size GUI size issue with the recent program update?

The only way access to cancel a scan is available to view in the window is not to have the windows toolbar at the bottom of the screen.

It is pointless posting about these problem as this isn't the latest avast version, as the post above yours states.

The GUI size is being addressed and that has been mentioned by avast in other posts.

The pause button still isn't present even in the latest avast version, it looks like this could be in the 17.3.xxxx.
that is it still hasn't been

It's not pointless as the issue persists in this and the latest version.

Of course it is, it stands to reason if it still exists in the current version it would still be in the previous version.

Since avast only works on current release issues and only allows for the user to download the latest version, then they wouldn't go back to previous versions to fix them.

What about those that only manually  update and that someone may have wanted to stop updating from the penultimate version?

You've pretty much answered your own question. Stay with an old version and live with the then existing problems.

Good answer, Bob. That's why I use the previous version which works.

Sorry, I run the current free version on a 64 bit Windows 10 system and have no problems.

You obviously run something on your system that doesn't work well with Avast.
To solve the problem, Avast needs to look for a common entity that exists on those with problems
and i missing from most of us who have no problems.
(Looking at your signature doesn't give any one any clue what's running on your system)

They are views of the topic and not necessarily those having any issues. For those who have posted in the topic, they get notified of new posts, so would be highly likely to view the new post. So it isn't 500+ unique users, just views.

Bob,
I have NO problems at this moment. But as long as I read in some threads - not only this one - about solid troubles with avast's new version I stay with 12.3.2800. And at the moment I don't look to another product.
But I'm annoyed when every year the GUI must change, stuff with no connection with malware is added to the software I use, and I don't want to be a beta tester.

All I want is a clean system (one with Win 7/64, one with Win10/32)  :)

That's something you should address directly with Avast:

I suggest you check the date of the last post before hosting Youssef
Besides, this thread is about a old verslon.
