Probably just a glitch, but I had to close the GUI manually after the restart.

Edit: Typo.

I frankly don't like popups that are displayed in the middle of the screen, potentially being mistakenly clicked and that stay there in your face. Whole purpose of antiviruses is to protect you without interruption. It's why I loved popups till now, appearing above taskbar, small popup just to let me know why EXE I just downloade is not accessible/existing anymore. I loved old avast! 4.x detection popup line appearing over taskbar for each file and if there were 15 detections, they'd just nicely stack. In yellow and red to show something bad happened, but you're fine. I most certainly don't like it how AVG shows popups and I certainly don't like the direction where avast! popups are now heading. What was wrong with existing method? We asked for improvements that never happened and with them it would be perfect. Now it's all gone for these massive popups across entire freaking screen.

Snap +1
If I, the user move a dialogue/alert window/popup to the edge of my screen, I expect it to stay there the next time it pops up. This has been a convention with MS windows for years

As RejZoR mentions, it is effectively stealing focus making any active button on that window live and likely to clicked accidentally, we all aren't touch typists, but pecking away at the keyboard.  The toaster popup was by far the the least intrusive (but noticeable) to the user.

Lets not lose sight of the fact that the the malware, etc. has already been stopped so the in your face urgency of the popup is I believe over the top, excuse the pun.

I agree with Boris and David,

When Avast showed us the new detection dialog, we were already afraid that this would happen.

New dialogs for malware detections
Found two bugs...
1. The dialog can only be closed manually (popup settings don't work).
2. "Show last popup" in system tray doesn't work anymore.

The new Web Shield page injection is also going to be annoying. Imagine you're on a webpage and just some content on it is malicious (or FP). With old popup, you'd just get link blocked and popup displayed on desktop, separately. Now, this "popup" inside browser will take over entire webpage. Now, if it's whole webpage that's blocked, fine, no harm, but if it's scenario as I've mentioned, it's annoying to lose access to whole webpage because you block just one link on it, but you also have to show a popup across whole page to the user...

I really do hate this change for changes sake, this is just another pain in the rear with an in your face popup requiring manual intervention. 

I suppose having effectively abandoned the popup settings, the 'show last popup' is redundant as the popup is in your face forever, plenty of time to go have your lunch, come back and read it.

It used to be that avast was the most configurable AV around, now I'm not so sure.
