It could have been done through a VPS update or an emergency update.
Neither would have changed your version number.

Not gone for me.  Out of about 15 workstations, one is presenting this problem.  Tried all the tricks up to and including an uninstall - cleanup - reinstall.  As long as Manas says there is a fix in the works for the next program update, that's good enough for me.  It's not interfering with the programs ability to detect threats and I told the user of that machine that they were selected to test a special new add-on for the next month or so.  Hey, it was that or "put a sticky note over it and move on".  I chose the positive route.  :D

I too am getting this same icon popping up in the taskbar on my Windows 10 computer even when Avast is not opened. I have also tried uninstalling/installing and the repair feature to no avail. It is very annoying because it looks like the program is open when it is not. I called tech support and allowed them to remote into my system and they could not fix it. The final word was that Avast appeared to be working so they could do nothing else. Well Avast is working but when you open it you then have two Avast icons on your taskbar and upon closing one goes away and the other stays. The icon popping up for no reason is definitely an Avast problem. The attitude, "it works so what do you want" is not very good support.

I have exactly the same problem!
Disappears if you reboot the PC a couple of times.
But this continues throughout January!
...And now February!  >:(

Hi! Thank you for a great antivirus program.

However, the CAvastTrayIcon window is still causing problems -- but in a different way. It's not visible -- but it steals focus on startup! This happens even when "Show Avast Tray Icon" is disabled.

This is highly problematic for an HTPC, for example. I run KODI on startup, in fullscreen, and have been annoyed for a long time that about 30 seconds after the startup, the task bar ends up on top of the fullscreen player window. Finally I decided to do something about it. I changed my startup script to start the MPC-HC media player in full screen mode, playing a file directly.
I did this because it has a useful feature -- when it loses focus, it tells you what it lost focus to.

Focus lost to avastui.exe - CAvastTrayIcon

Gotcha! :)

Your UI code must be unnecessarily calling SetForegroundWindow or something to that effect.

Would most appreciate if you could stop doing that in the next update!

Thank you in advance.
