@ 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.

...

@ David,

I can understand that Avast wants a notification center, a centralised place were you can (re)view all messages from Avast.
But the current implementation of status monitoring was ( and is ) simply not ready for Beta testing.

Greetz, Red.

I have to say since the Notification area came in, it has been a pain in the backside.  This forum is littered with posts on the failures/bugs in the Notification area, false reports, duplication, multiplication, failure to show details, but runs a scan again, etc. etc. etc.

It's a mess.

"Dismiss all" notifications button fades notifications out WAY too slowly.

Would also be nice it it was possible for users to disable the notifications count number on the tray icon. I can imagine people want notifications histor so you can look back what happened if there is a need, but don't want avast! triggering their OCD by showing a number on tray icon. I know it's bothering me a bit...

When installed beta, I got TONS of separate folders in it from Documents. Why not just protect whole documents, pictures, music etc folders instead of adding separate folders from within it? I had to remove like 15 of them and then add just the root documents folders instead.

Oh ok Thank you for replying, seems to be stable so far, except this Windows 7 Desktop so much slower than my 8 Core System lol, but in case of bsods or any other issues I tend to test on the Slower WIndows 7 System lol

wow so many old files on this system to get rid of lol, old games I never play anymore, some other misc files, download folder to clean lol

Is this problem solved in the latest beta?  See image attached.

(Sorry if it has already been solved in a beta version. I don't like to install beta versions, and it has been quite a looong time since we don't have a new stable version).

Thanks!

Would be bad, as all translations for the ransomware module are missing (in German).
