What happened to the virus chest? Spent a lot of time looking for it and not found it (v2287). I sometimes use batch files to run certain programs and avast deleted one of them! I have no problem with it deleting something that may be seen as potential threat BUT must have a way to get it back! So where is the chest? Non-existent?

we work on redesign and then we will put it higher in the navigation. ~April

Updated on 2 different systems - one two updates performed with last week or so.

As compared to:
Program version:      2016.12.3.2280

The main or "Splash" screen does not fit monitor window, cannot be resized to fill window, does not populate with either vertical or horizontal scroll bars and thus user cannot access certain information and links embedded on that window.

Tests performed on 14 and 15 inch laptop screens.

Do not recall a similar issue in any past versions.

New staff developing your updates??
 :(

HTH

Hmm this should already work... what is your resolution and dpi settings please?

Avast 17.1 and 17.2 has longer scan times for all scans compared to version 12. I mean first scan after restart PC, if i run the same test again, it takes much less time to complete. This also affects launching programs. First launch has about 2 sec delay to launch and next launch is without delay. This never happend in version 12.

I ran into an issue with the latest version of avast (Free).
Program Version 17.2.2288 (build 17.2.3419.0)
I had to do TWO Separate re-starts on TWO Separate user accounts to get the avast update fully installed, and allow access to the second user account!

I am both Administrator and I have a user account for browsing. There is a second user account.
The update ran without a problem, from my user account, including the restart.
When I tried to open the second user account, windows 10 displayed an Error Message and would only allow Limited access. I was told that any changes would be lost when logging off. Avast was NOT showing anywhere on the task bar or Menu and Many desktop icons, and menu listings were absent.

I used the "cortana desktop search to find Avast and open the program, then Avast appeared on the task bar (^).
I tried several times to open Avast, but it would NOT stay open. The avast window would blink on then disappear within a second.
I brought up the Icon from the task bar, Right clicked, chose "Update" then clicked on Program (update).
I was told I had to re-start my computer to finish installing the update! The computer had ALREADY RE-STARTED, a day or two earlier, to finish installing the update using the Other user account!
After the SECOND Re-start the second user account opened normally.
There was no problem with the Administrator account.

Windows 10 Pro 64 bit
Version 1607
OS Build 14393.693
I5-2400 in HP Compaq 8200 SFF w/8GB memory and 1TB HD

CHANGE THE SETTINGS ON THE AVAST WINDOWS, SUPPLYING INFORMATION ABOUT AVAST SO THAT I CAN COPY THE  INFORMATION TO THE CLIPBOARD INSTEAD OF HAVING OI COPY IT USING THE KEYBOARD!!!!!!!!!

Your audio verification seems NOT to want to play on FF and VLC media player

If Repair doesn't fix the problem, try the following:

I tried to install Avast version 17.2.2288 using the previous version GUI (12.3.2280) and a clean install of the new version, but both failed. I followed the usual suggestions such as uninstalling, reinstalling, running avastclean.exe, and rebooting between attempts, but all I get for a GUI with the new version is a big white box. This is the same identical experience I had trying to update to version 17.1.2286, which did not work either. Fortunately, I set a restore point before starting, so I was able to restore the previous version of Avast (12.3.2280.)

This is the second version update failure in a row. I am astonished that a major security software company like Avast would release software that clearly is not ready for use. It is really irresponsible.

Problem in the Avast Antivirus.
Users has smaller users like notebook laptops and more. The problem is the program, I can't press the buttons in the bottom. I was trying to scroll it but it can't reach in the buttons at the buttom. I was trying to resize the program but it can't because there's no feature like that.
Problem(s)
- No feature of resizing the program
- No scrolling down to the buttons at the buttom.
Please, add it!

I noticed the same thing on my Dell S2340M monitor .. You can not see the bottom of the installer screen.
But yet on my laptop I did see it ... What you might try is Right Click on an empty area of the Desktop, select
Properties and select a higher screen resolution to use while you are doing the installation. Later on, you
can reset it back to what it should be. And I agree, the installer window is WAY TOO BIG and also needs to
be allowed to be resizeable.

I have been banging this for so long it gives me a headache, certainly since I got an Acer Aspire One, Win7 Starter (32bit) 10.1", 1024X600 screen, this was over three years ago.

This as far as I'm concerned is even more critical than the size of the UI (which is massive). Avast are now designing the UI so it is always smaller than the resolution of the system.  Yet nothing about the installation screen.

The suggestion to simply increase the resolution won't work as you can't raise it higher than the native resolution. Well it is possible but you have to perform a hack to artificially allow you to do it, the screen isn't great, but at least you can see the complete installation screen.

Thanks for that again Bob, hopefully avast will do something about the size of the installation screen, so people don't have to apply a hack to see all of the installation window.

Hello!

The installation of Avast software causes blue screen of death shortly after the system is booted. It started after upgrading Avast to the latest version. While the system is loading, HDD light flashes actively. Also was not able to run Google Chrome while the system was booting...

I've installed complete pack of Avast Software.

BTW, I've recently used Windows startup recovery tool. It worked for some time, after which I was informed about the tool's inability to solve the problem.

But after that, I got all Avast Software products removed and Microsoft Security Essentials installed again.

BSODs I recall are: BAD_POOL_HEADER and BAD_POOL_CALLER. There were other(s).

My hardware is: ASUS X52F Laptop
OS: Windows 7, 32-bit

At first, Windows Updates were off. I thought that maybe new version of Avast requires certain Windows Updates. I deleted Avast with your removal utility, after which I updated my Windows, checked it with Microsoft Security Essentials (some viruses were found and removed) and tried again. But same thing occurred.

Software installed is shown on pictures attached.

BTW, I've recently used Windows startup recovery tool. It worked for some time, after which I was informed about the tool's inability to solve the problem.

Without Avast Software, the laptop works fine as it always did.









Have a nice day!
