Every 10 minutes or so it stops protecting. i get the message,  "Ul failed to load.  This is really embarrassing.  AV service is not responding."  With the option to exit or restart service.  When I click restart service it shows it's protecting for 10 minutes or so and stops again without warning or notice.  I did clean install and  also restarted several times.  Not acceptable after paying $60 a month ago.  Windows 10

This seems to have worked, after second restart.  Thanks.

The new version has an error. If you are viewing a computer via VNC (tightVNC or RealVNC) and you click on anything that activates Avast you totally loss control - no mouse or ability to click. If you switch to a local mouse you can view in OK in VNC. I maintain several computers in my home from one location and this makes it very troublesome because I have to physically move to each computer just to check status. :(

Same problem here, TightVNC just 'stops' whenever I activate anything related to Avast. Like a single click to open the interface from systray.
Please Avast do something to correct the situation, and do it fast. This is unacceptable!

Two days in a row (today and yesterday) on the Dell 82000 P4 XP PRO SP3 ... Behavior Shield was not enabled on boot up and had to be turned on manually. No issues on the Windows 10 laptop. I thought they had this glitch fixed .. guess not.

Hi

I updated all my computers with this new version and I have a problem

regardless of taking the hand on my computer with VNC (UltraVNC) or LogMeIn, when I open the Avast program or make a scan on a folder, I cannot use more the computer remotely

I can only see the screen, and if someone is using it in front of the computer it's ok, but remotely I can't do anything until the Avast Window is close...

Hope you will correct that very quickly

I updated to Avast 17.8.2318 on 2 computers running latest fast ring insider preview Redstone 4 Windows 10 Build 17035 and both computers keep crashing with a green screen and will not let Windows start!

Luckily I was able to restore the previous build "17025" and then install Avast update 17.8.2318 and then update to Windows 10 build 17035 again and this time Windows starts just fine on both computers after restart.

So there seems to be a major issue with Windows 10 Build 17035 and Avast 17.8.28 when updating and restarting the computer.

Thanks for version 17.8.2318, it seems to update and run fine on Windows XP.  I did get the infamous "UI Failed to load" message on the first reboot, but subsequent reboots loaded it without trouble.  :)

My custom settings were not wiped out. :)

Smart Scan is still unable to scan for "compatibility issues", as previously reported here and here.

It would be nice to be able to rescan files from within the Virus Chest, as was possible in old versions.  In fact, right-clicking used to offer all sorts of useful options which we no longer have (see attached picture, nostalgically ;)).

When informing about the availability of version 17.8.2318, the user interface is calling it a "Security update" instead of a "New version" (see attached screenshot).  This is confusing.  In my experience, the term "security update" is used when the update fixes a security bug (or "hole") in the software.  This does not appear to be the case with version 17.8.2318 - the fixes listed are all related to functionality.

Totally agree on the Security Update, I did a double take when I saw this message.

This is a program update, not a security update, that I would have expected to have been done on a micro update or emergency update.  Not to mention there is nothing mentioned in the change log about this being a security update, or nothing listed relating to security.
