Version: 17.9.2322
« on: December 21, 2017, 02:51:06 PM »
Hello everyone,
new stable version 17.9.2322 has just been released. This one was mainly focused on bugfixing.
 

What's new:

- Now you can send feedback and bug reports from Settings > About
- Recycle Bin content can now be shredded via Windows contextual menu (Avast Premier only)
- Redesigned Scan & Shields screens in the Protection menu for easier navigation
- Redesigned Avast Passwords UI for easier use
- More detailed status reporting to Windows Security Center in Windows 10 Fall Creators Update
- Nested virtualization support for AMD CPUs
- Better proxy detection by setup and update from Windows settings


Fixed:

- Fixed a problem with white UI (you might see more processes AvastUI.exe now, but that's OK)
- Sensitive Data Shield now works with Windows XP and Vista
- Anti-Phishing Protection in Web Shield now works with Windows XP
- Clicking Scan Details in the Notification Center no longer starts another scan
- Fixed Avast service crash when a license expires
- Fixed performance scan in Performance > Cleanup Premium
- Fixed issue where Behavior Shield sometimes cut off a user’s Internet connection
- False positives can now be reported directly from threat detection warnings (File Shield)
- Fixed boot issue on Windows XP when Virtual PC driver is installed
- Fixed BSOD caused by conflict between DELL percsas3 and Avast Self-defense drivers


How to install:

1. Update from your existing Avast version via Settings -> Update -> Update program

2. Or you can download and install from here

Thanks@Asyn.
Bad move by Avast.... >:(

GUI will be faster in January, Quick scan can be configured in custom scans. We selected the most used Scans that are Smart Scan (that is quick) and Full system scan (that is slow but detailed)

So, on the subject of Quick Scan being gone... I'm still on 17.8.2318, but somehow my GUI has updated already--I have a "Core Shields" section and no longer have access to Quick Scans.

However, I had a regularly scheduled Quick Scan, and that still runs (I saw it do so yesterday). I'm not able to remove it from the schedule, obviously, because there's no more Quick Scans schedule to access. It doesn't appear in the new "Custom Scans" section. How do I fix this? Am I going to have to completely uninstall and reinstall Avast to get rid of it? I'm really not happy about this.

Thank you for the new release.
I hope you can also put update logs of the new version for AVG.

Congratulations, you just released a new version with ENTIRELY broken tray icon animation which doesn't animate anymore at all. Not that we warned about the bug pretty much on day one of the very first beta or anything...

Tray icon timeline:

- Version 17 released, tray animation re-introduced, but was glitching out
- Took more than half a year to get a fix for it
- Gets absolutely and entirely broken 3 months after the last fix

Have I missed anything? What the hell are you people doing? Seriously.

Also, what's up with the arrangement of icons under "Protection" tab? Why are they arranged vertically instead of horizontally and why are they all messed up as far as order goes?

They should go in order of relevance:
Core Shields, Scans, Virus Chest, Sandbox, Ransomware Shield, Firewall and Real Site

Not the current totally random mess of pad locked icons all mixed up together with other ones, antivirus ones being mixed with everything else... The GUI is constantly riddled with such idiocies. And if it was just once such example, whatever, but it's everywhere on all ends, all the time, making it look like no one even cared where anything is placed. This crap has been around for ages and I keep complaining over it and no F is given. C'mon, all it takes is 5 minutes of work required to have a professional looking, clean interface that oozes placement, predictability and refinement. But nope.  ::)

Just updated here via the GUI. It looks like it's working normally, except one thing.
It's just here that the Avast icon in the task bar doesn't move anymore when it's scanning something? It's still checked in settings to animate, but it looks like it doesn't work anymore.
