Ok, what the hell is wrong with the damn avast! installer? It's now taking freaking forever to install. Installs are now taking over 15 minutes. It's ridiculous. And AVG has the exact same problem. It's sitting at 2mm of progress bar above taskbar for 5 minutes now and it's barely moving anywhere. No AV including avast! ever took this long to install, not even Norton in its worst days.

And what's worse, it's IMPOSSIBLE to cancel installation. I now have to sit through half an hour of waiting for the stupid installer to complete. If lucky.

EDIT:
30 minutes have passed and the progress bar is still sitting at 1/3 of the progress... This is just absolutely absurd.

EDIT 2:
It finished in exactly 40 minutes. WHAT!? Started the install at 10:50 and it finished at 11:30. This is just ridiculous.

EDIT 3:
Oh no, it hasn't actually finished. It's now doing a progress bar thingie in its main interface. Stuck at 33% just like the last time...

To add to what RejZoR said,
When the system starts, it takes a long time for the Avast icon to appear on the System tray.
If you happen to run the VPN, that takes another 40 seconds before it appears.
(The slowness of the VPN module isn't new.)

I've actually reported this problem here on the forum for a previous stable version and everyone dismissed it as "not a big deal".

That's actually intentional - to minimize the effect on Windows startup (i.e. on other programs you may want to launch or be launched early), the start of the Avast UI has been delayed - which includes the tray icon.
However, it doesn't mean that your machine is not protected till then - the main service (AvastSvc.exe) is launched earlier and it doesn't need the UI to be running to scan and block infected files. So the real time protection is running, you just don't know about it for a while.

I want it to load up considerably faster too but doubt they will change it.

Obviously you don't understand.
It takes a long time for the Avast tray icon to become visible. (OK, this is by design.)
Now you wait another 45 sec. or longer for the VPN tray icon to come up. - This is not acceptable.

This mornings boot revealed the following:

The Restart Service doesn't fix the problem.
I've just finished doing a repair. Hopefully the problem will be fixed once I reboot.  :'(


Windows Defender still states that I'm protected by Avast. ???

A clean install solved the problem. :)

Clean Install of Avast:

Interestingly enough I never experienced Behavior Shield service shutting down or GUI failing to load. Quite a lot of people seem to have this problem here.

Well got it fixed on that system,  weird how it always happens on that one system,  GUI Failing to load or Behavior shield issues, and yes it was a clean install in the past, perhaps I switched to MSE/Avast too much on that system, who really knows for sure,  Definitely staying with Avast now though lol, too much hassle redoing all the exclusions for a game, and such.
