Dear zenon68,
Would it be possible to get a screenshot of the dashboard (feel free to send it to hasik (at) avast (dot) com) ?

It would be great if you check also your version and version of virus definitions in About dialog. The product should try to update the virus definitions periodically (automatically) therefore this situation should not happen when you are not offline for looong time.
You can try to hit the UPDATE NOW button in Preferences > General or run following command in Terminal /Applications/Avast.app/Contents/Backend/scripts/update/update.sh (screenshot first, please).

Lukas.
Quality is also a feature.

I just installed this version of Avast. So far so good. One thing I wanted to point out is File Shield. Under the options there's something that says:

Report potentially unwanted programs (e.g., those bundled with other programs).

The irony here is you guys do this very thing with Avast. My version of Avast comes BUNDLED with Google Chrome.

I would suggest removing Google Chrome from Avast as those who want it know where to find it. This has bothered me ever since you added this additional annoyance.

Perhaps this is something to think about as far as your product is concerned. Are you guys becoming a bastardized version of what drew people to you?

Updated avast on my Mac this morning. No issues so far, however I was wondering if there was a Notifications panel similar to previous release where I could see when an update was done and a history of recent updates? I do not see that in the latest. Also are there still popups or are they gone too? Missing those to be honest.

Thanks! GB

Updated to the new version today and a bit disapointed...I miss the popups when update is done and the right clic option "Analyse with avast " which is very usefull and faster than opening the UI....Hope it will come back !
