For me, Passwords page does not load... I'll try reinstall later on.
W8.1 x64, Estonian language UI. Same with UK English.

Seems like clean reinstall helped (uninstall, restart, avastclear, restart - install).
Previously I added it from Components menu (not during install).

1) I have been a loyal avast users for a number of years.
2) avast has saved my butt more than once.
3) Looking forward to some real fixes.

From what I read here there are no real fixes to be found here.
It seems avast released a beta just so they can say they released a new beta.

I'll pass on this beta(?).
Dell Inspiron, Win10x64--HP Envy Win10x64--Both systems Avast Free v17.9.2322, Comodo Firewall v8.2 w/D+, MalwareBytes v3.0, OpenDNS, Super Anti-Spyware, Spyware Blaster, MCShield, Unchecky, Vivaldi Browser and, various browser security tools.

The management and coders, will never learn to do what the users want them to do. Like resizing the installer and main option windows. Or to stop releasing BETA versions every couple of weeks. It is better to have major releases done either quarterly or twice yearly. This will give the coders and testers time to get all the bugs out.

I also have a question as they say Avast will stop support for XP in a couple of years. Okay, but will we still be able to get the Definitions update for the last version installed that does work on XP after XP support is dropped ? ? ?

 :( This Beta version has not solved the UI issue for me in Windows XP SP3.............same problem, that AV service either failed to load or not responding.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled so many different ways now and yet nothing has worked re this problem which makes the computer impossible to scan.

I have for now migrated to another AV on my XP pc, with huge reluctance after 10 years of Avast use.

There are a whole lot of issues that haven't even been addressed in this beta.

I certainly think that it is due an update after almost 13 days, to have addressed some of the outstanding issues from earlier versions.

Plus Address Any issues that came up since Creators update release in Windows 10 would be nice

I experienced this other day

turned off shields for 1 hour, then reeanbled them as didn't really help eject usb drive that didn't wanna eject lol,  anyways webshield refused to turn back on, after a reboot it did though

Sure with a new OS release, there is gonna be a few bugs, so i'm living with it, keeping Avast in, as I tried defender a few times, and definitely don't like it, plus it's scans so slow compared to Avast lol,  Sunday planning on whole system major full scan, all externals connected, flash drives, making sure system clean as Comcast Gateway modem somehow ends up on hard reset, or standard reset with utopia.net dns suffix lol, Comcast says to check machines for Malware, though I think its on there end as I checked with wifi inspector, scanned each machine in boot scan, nothing found so far, (but might recheck with all drives connected to this one Sunday)

This is Bullshit. I pay good money for not only protection against DNS hijacking, but also, I EXPECT AVAST TO KNOW CURRENT THREATS AND WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE COMPUTER WORLD.

OPEN QUESTION TO AVAST.COM STAFF: WHAT IS THIS UTOPIA.NET, WHERE DOES IT COME FROM, AND HOW DO WE REMOVE IT?

I recommended avast to dozens of people. Maybe I should start recommending another antivirus and internet security company.

NOT Happy,
KH
