system is dreadfully slow after this update. can barely browse the net going to reinstall and see if that helps.

edit: all seems fine after a clean install. something during the update must have caused an issue.

I'm with the others. The GUI opens painfully slow. First I get an "over-sized" white box, then after a few seconds the GUI finally opens up.

It fixed itself somehow only on one of my PC's. On two of them it's still broken. I don't get it. And majority of people also can't import it because the dialog is just empty. Why isn't this getting fixed properly so people can finally import my config file?

No, Behavior Shield should always have exclusions separate.

This just happened in VMware virtual machine I'm using. Any logs I should send?

Avast icon - About opens just fine.

disable all shield , behavior shield truely disable , that means behavior protection is a part of shield. i dont understand why need exclude scanning separate .

Because behavior and file scanning are VERY different methods of protection. Just because you want to exclude something from signatures, you don't necessarily want to exclude it from behavior protection as well. Signatures are far more prone to false positives than behavior analysis...

Maybe include an option on the global exclusions page to apply exclusions to Behavior Shield.

And still no answer from avast about the 30+ fixes >:(

How are we supposed to test/check things if we don't know what changes (amongst the other things) that we should test/check...
