Are the minimize/close buttons grayed-out (like disabled) when the main Avast window is active/inactive ?
Not as far as I can tell -- though these icons are grey-on-grey -- they look identical to their inactive state in the functioning window (Admin account). The mouseover highlight/glow effect never occurs, and they are unresponsive to any clicks.

Does Alt+F4 close the main Avast window ?
Yes.

Does Winlogo+M minimize the main Avast window ?
Yes (minimizes all active windows as usual).

To confirm, this issue did not present in any previous version (direct update from 12.x).

Because I'm nothing if not stubbornly persistent, I uninstalled Avast using aswClear, scrubbed my system of all known traces, rebooted yadda yadda and reinstalled -- only to find: no change. Main interface titlebar icons remain unresponsive. FWIW one new crumb of info: whatever the cause it's tied to my current user profile, because (A) the other Admin profile does not have the problem, and (B) changing this profile to Admin does not solve it. So it's not you, it's me. Humbug.

Yes.  I even updated Avast on a friend's Win 7 computer yesterday and her Standard user account works, no glitch. I'm cursed, I tell ya -- cursed!

Oh man, wish I'd seen this sooner, because the flamethrower sure didn't help

Just a note to confirm that the latest program update (build 17.4.3842) fixes the GUI glitch and all related functions appears to be working.  8)
