Not sure if this is meant to be part of the design or something is missing in the UI > Status > Account ?

Also the connection to the account is just spinning its wheels I gave up before it connected.

EDIT: Though the View Account button immediately connects to your account in your default browser.

updated from 2291 beta to 2292.

However, nothing is fixed the problem ( https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=199732.0 ).

Webshield makes "Connection was reset" when I open router setting page.
Uninstalling(with avastclear.exe) and reinstalling does not help.

Clarify: Can I use the OFF LINE INSTALLER on my XP box to install Avast Free in the future ? ? ?
My XP box is connected to internet, but I intensely dislike using Stub Installers
As your XP is connected to the net, yes.

So, the mentioned overhaul of GUI is just this? A framework update? No added statistics, no fixed shields page or split on-access and on-demand scans. Ugh :(

I think it has actually got worse, now every time you open the UI it is (massive) in your face centre screen.

Previously that was/something changed and you were able to reposition it and it stayed there, not any more, every time it is opened it goes back to centre screen. It seems every time something is changed, something gets broken.

Well I have to report that we still have the issue of clicking the Details button (Notifications) after the Smart Scan far from showing the details it starts the bloody smart scan again. And still no Pause button in the scan.

When is this ever going to be resolved !!!

Just what is it that we are meant to be testing in this beta as nothing outstanding appears to have been addressed. Other than this CEF, whatever the hell that is ?

Clicking the Details button (Notifications) after the Smart Scan far from showing the details it starts the bloody smart scan again. = It's a known bug and will be fixed.

Regarding the pause button, that isn't certain to come back. They are considering to bring it back but not very likely.

The stats will be rather later than sooner and so will the scan information (+pause button) if they decide to bring it back.

CEF (Chromium Embedded Framework) is the framework that the UI runs on. That includes the toaster and everything related to the UI. It's used for online content on the UI too as far as I am aware. The latest version of CEF will fix the UI and toaster bugs such as when the scan is reported as cancelled by the toaster, whereas, it actually completes successfully.

There is still rather a few fixes that's left to do with CEF within the UI.

Here we are in another beta and known issue or not, this has been going on for absolutely ages, I kind of hoped beta were for testing old problems that have been fixed. There seems to be less and less going on in the beta/s, it begs the question, what is the point.

I have never been one for stats the original one that got removed had too little information to be particularly useful.

At last an answer about CEF (given there are many computer related acronyms for it), thanks. Previously I never suffered the 99% or scan cancelled issue on this system.

This is a huge change with impact on a whole product. Please watch any UI crashes or not working pages.
Well, no crahes here, but no bug fixes either...

There is also a lot of people using 17.3.2291 and XP SP3 having issued with the UI not even loading, more and more topics. I didn't suffer this issue in 17..2291 or this 17.4.2291 beta.

I don't see anything in the initial posts about any fixes:
Are there any and would it include the UI not loading error on XP SP3.

This really should have been in its own topic in the viruses and worms forum. This is a program beta topic and viruses/malware are handled outside of the program version itself.

I can't see avast specifying a particular day (they would first have to have a sample/s).

I also haven't any idea what it is you are trying to have them correct, the video in itself aside from the language is long. so I don't watch it through. Presumably you ran some samples in a VM environment, checked by hitman pro and then by avast.

Any samples that weren't detected should be sent directly to avast for analysis and inclusion (if conformed) in the virus definitions update.
