Could you please create a "Classic View" interface so that we can more easily access the features of the program? 
The new interface is pretty and all that but it seems to be hiding some of the more simple things.. Update, Boot Scan -or any "special scans" - things that we used to access easily are now either gone or buried so deep that we can't find them.
Thank you

Protection, other scans. :)
Not really hidden just need to dig a little deeper or get used to the new interface. Once you do,
it will probably change again. :)

I second that suggestion.  This morning I woke up to my PC being automatically updated from 12.3.2280 to 17.5.2303 NOT happy.  Oddly while trying to rectify the offense, I logged into another computer with Microsoft Remote Desktop and the interface of 17.5.2303 was presented in the classic style.  What I concluded from this is the classic interface is still in there, somehow triggered by display settings/visual styles perhaps.  Because Remote Desktop can tune down the settings for speed, but I don't know what settings have triggered it.

The new interface is disgusting, it's following the trend of burying things deep and I hate it.

As somebody else pointed out, probably change again. At least it's better than bit defender, thank you Avast!

Some like the new interface while others don't.
It is just a matter of taste and how someone looks at it.
As they say "You can't please everyone".

That is why I posted a request for the "Classic" option.. I've had this new one now for some 5 years and I still can't find what I need to easily..
Looking better is not a substitute for a better working program...

Certainly makes no sense to resurrect a 2 year old thread.
