Both back, but disabled by default. Antivirus is suppose to be a quiet thing, sitting there quietly, protecting you, but some people developed an odd urge to have something obnoxiously loud on their PC instead. Go figure :D

Is it only me or there is no more Avast sound when scanning is finished (when nothing is found) ?
Both Smart and Quick Scan.

Edit:
BTW I selected to bring both back also.

I voted to Bring back both the sound and notification of VPS updates.  There should be the ability to disable sound and/or notification.  Having the notification was nice, especially since sometimes the VPS server farms in some areas quit working properly.  Fortunately, Avast has corrected that situation.

I don't mind one way or the other. If sounds then the option to disable the sound, but if it is a no return, then the UI needs to reflect that, remove the element for Sounds.

The first thing I do is turn off all Avast's sounds. Her voice has scared the heck out of me one too many times plus I don't care for the interruption.

Thanks for the poll.   :)

I voted bring back both but disabled by default.  Those that don't want it won't have to dig for settings to disable it.

I loved the very old avast4.x Alert, now that really was an alert, scared the pants off you along with the Radioactive Tri-foil style image.

The notification with the sound is something that is re-ensuring for the users atleast from what i have seen.

I have got a dozen of people pestering me with:
avast! isn't working properly it doesn't give me update notification with the sound.

So i am voicing this for them.

Give them their chick back.... ;)

Bump... looking at the poll so far, users favour for both VPS sound and notification to come back while some prefer them to be there but disabled by default.
