Thnx,

That was indeed the problem.
I have no time now, but will test it better this weekend.

Thanks for the new beta :)

BTW since previous beta, sometimes I have a DNS problem with Real Site (site not loading, DNS resolution failing).
Stop/restart Real site seems fix the problem.

A troublesome scenario regarding Notification Center ( what has happened to me ) :

1 ) Open Avast - Settings - Components - ( for example ) Behaviour shield - Off / Stop ... - Yes - Ok.
2 ) Open  Notification Center - Problems - V ( arrow down) - Ignore.

- Notice there is a mention about Ignored problems.

3 ) Than again Settings - Components - Bahavior shield - On - Ok.
4 ) Open Notification Center again.

- Notice that the mention about Ignored problems is gone.

The problems are :

1 ) When you ignore mentions for one shield, all the other shields are ignored as well.
2 ) With this scenario you won't get mentions for the shields ( any shield ! ) because they are ignored, and most likely you are not even aware of it.

Greetz, Red.


EDIT : I got a quick reaction from Avast Developer Endt on Slack, that he sees my point here and it will be passed on to the product developer.

@ Red,

This really is annoying beyond belief, making changes to something that was perfectly fine (and found to be very useful to many users), only to screw it up royally makes me wonder the direction avast is taking.

The disappointing thing is this isn't the first change that has been made only to break something.

I can remember when beta testing way back in avast 4.x was unbelievably stable for a beta, not the beta testing appears to be a bit of a minefield. I have had to drop out of this beta testing sticking on avast! free 17.5.2296beta, any beta after that I was plagued by BSODs and I have lost the desire to continue that situation.

They should just move the old Status Monitoring settings access from main settings into the Notification center. And leave it as it is.

We have just released a quick beta refresh, version 17.5.2302. It fixes couple of deadlocks which could occur under special circumstances.
Thanks for updating!
