BTW, I forgot to mention,
before, while I was searching around, I bump into this web,
don't know why, but I feel it's just not right coz after I finish scrolling down and read, a message pop up from the web to install that software mention on it,
I'm not sure though, cause avast web shield o.k with it and doesn't block it, here's the link http://pcdir.net/microsoft-security/microsoft-security-essentials-vs-avast-home.html
Don't know should I brought this up or not, but it keep buging me, so I'm sorry in advance and thanks
The website may not be malicious. The tool they offer is probably a different story.
I would not download that "tool"

This should be fixed in next Avast version.

Downloaded the latest Avast version today.  It is still unable to display Avast's status.
You downloaded the current version. The fix is slated for the next version.

I have downloaded and installed the new version 17.8.2318. The issue is not resolved in version 17.8.2318.

Is there any further advice available?

A screenshot of your problem would make things easier to verify.

For me, the first post is from black_coffee and I see a screenshot in that post (showing Windows Defender Security Center with the Status unavailable, open Avast Antivirus for information message).

Yes, I realise what Windows Defender is telling us, but I was referring to the response from MartinZ:
This should be fixed in next Avast version.

but it is NOT fixed in version 17.8.2318, at least, not for me on several Windows 10 Pro 64-bit PCs.

Guess you'll have to wait for MartinZ to answer. I don't see a problem for Avast to fix.

I realize this doesn't resolve your problem however I have the latest build installed on my 8510p Win 10 Creators 64bit machine and everything shows as it should. Both in the UI and Security Centre.

Hmm this looks like something different, that the service that reports status to Windows Security Center doesn't work at all in your case...
Could you please send me the zipped log folder from C:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast\log ?

Thanks

Not only that, the forum software doesn't allow .rar or any other file type other than those image and text file types listed.

You could upload it to a file sharing site and PM MartinZ the sharing link to download it.
