Thanks for update.
- GUI opening is slower then previous version.
- Scanning files inside Virus Chest still not working.

very disappointed. >:( :(

I agree. This is a disappointing step back. I hope this gets fixed very soon.

UI loads the same time as before, we just changed the way how it's displayed. before you saw just Loading spinner now you see the UI kinda flashing. Anyway we know it's slower than we would like it to be and in next version we will do some other improvements in the code to load it faster

Sorry Martin,
1.  Since I wasn't experiencing any issue with the loading of the UI previously, now I have.
The loading time of the two stage loading is far greater than my previous loading.
The two stage loading looks like there is something wrong with the UI, it's a mess.

2.  The issue about scanning files in the chest has found another bug. 
We know (previous bug reported) if we go to the virus chest from the context menu and try to scan a file there is no scan carried out.  It had been said if you happened to have the UI open before using the context menu to get to the virus chest, then it would scan. 

Here is the next bug:
Testing to see if the above bug had been resolved, I opened the virus chest from the context menu and try to scan a file, nada doesn't work as before.  I thought lets open the UI and see if it will now scan the file in the chest NO It Doesn't.  I closed the virus chest window and the main AvastUI window is locked completely and there are two entries for avastUI.exe in the task manager.

Trying to resolve this by disabling the self-defence module, which I had to access using the tray icon context menu 'About Avast' when opened - Trouble shooting and disabled the self-defence module. That had an unexpected effect it triggered the main UI Notifications - unlocking the UI so the main UI was now accessible - I went into the notifications section I closed the notification for the disabled self-defence module. I was now able to close the main UI. 

What a pain in the backside.

In the laptop, the program updated without any problems.
But I have also have a tablet with Avast, but everytime that I check if there's a new update available, it always says that there's no update available.

Both devices are using Windows 10.

Any suggestions?

RAM: 8GB
GPU: Nvidia GT740M - 2GB

Forum Support:

Your previous update corrected signage accuracy, but failed to fix Quick Scan scheduling.  So far, I've been unable to set automatic Quick Scans, except when scheduling them on a same-day basis.  However, your latest version, 17.6.3625.0, no longer allows me to schedule any automatic Quick Scans at all -- even when scheduling the scans on the same day I intend them to run.  I'm hoping this malfunction will soon be fixed.  Possible?  Otherwise, my Avast Free Antivirus has been transformed from slowly improving to seriously flawed.  Sorry. 

Thanks.

I confirm that for me too the opening of the UI is longer than before, I had never noticed a time with the display "loading".
Anyway, even if you maintain that this time has not changed, many users feel a slowdown, I think that the feel of the users is important?

So,if there is no change at your eyes , why not make a comeback, when we - users - feel this flashing as a slowdown, a bug?
Pleasure to change or something else ?

Edit:Confirmed after tests between old and new version on same pc = more or less 12 sec
With old : 9s for UI to appear and only 3s with "loading"
With new : only 4s for UI to appear but 8s with "loading" (even if it appears long at our eyes , there is no change)

I don't know how much testing this update has been through but, if I open the interface it starts with what most of the users in this thread are claiming about. However, with my install it just hangs and eventually when I click on it again Windows reports that this program is not responding.

Avast is not exactly making me feel secure about my pc environment at the moment.

The version number for my install of Avast UI.exe is 17.6.3625.0

I'm saying on v17.5.2302 until the latest version is resolved, sorry Avast because you've release the latest version too soon without any further double checking before the final release.

All I can say about 17.6.2310 is the UI is horrible. Why would somebody change something that was already just fine ? ?
Also the mods and Avast people here kept saying the Behavior Shield Not Always Starting would be fixed on the next major release. Guess what, it still happens on XP PRO SP3 .. Maybe they meant when Avast goes to V18 ? ? ?

I have this feeling almost always when new version arrive (especially move from almost perfect v12 to buggy v17). Old bugs not fixed and new bugs appears. It seems like Avast must release new version regularly at all cost. Beta version one day, second day stable. Just keep beta for month or more before you fix all bugs, after that is good time relase stable version. I feel like beta tester whole time.
