No, known bug.  What you are seeing is a panel in the avast gui saying 'A few seconds' irregardless of the actual scanning time; that is the bug.

Were you responding to me? I'm asking about detailed reports, which show you files that couldn't be scanned even in the absence of a threat. Prior to this release, you could see them, but now the option is apparently unavailable. Are you saying the lack of detailed reports is a known bug and we should expect to see them again?

I'm with this gentleman regarding scan history.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe there used to be two tabs: THREATS and WARNINGS.  You would see the THREAT tab only if you had an infection and WARNINGS tab if had hidden files that could not be read.  Mine were Adobe so they were always there.  Those tabs are now gone.    We were just noting this in addition to the Run Time bug saying a few seconds.

Follow the instruction offered in your other post. Posting in more than one place isn't of any benefit.
It just makes helping harder.

Update: Then after I rebooted, now I have no scan history at all!  Just says NO SCANS!  Everything's completely gone!

No problems here on W8.1, but it's up to you if you update.

After I'd performed the update I hit on computer restart as requested, then the message that 2 programs were stopping windows from restarting, logoff sound and Avast, I left this as long as I could before I hit on force start, don't normally have this issue, however it seems to have installed successful.

Re: NEW Version: 18.1.2326 + The Scan Progress Popup Box
« Reply #83 on: February 19, 2018, 12:04:44 PM »
Avast:

Hi. I posted previously regarding the scan progress message box failing to popup during scheduled custom scans. Since then, I've noticed forum posts reporting that the Avast tray icon isn't working.  After seeing these reports, and given I'm not at all sure about the correct jargon or labels, I decided to include a screen snip of the malfunctioning component.  The snip of what I usually and awkwardly refer to as the progress indicator or progress message box is attached. To summarize:  This component opened on Day One of the 18.1.2326 update, but stopped appearing after that.  Now it only appears if I change scan settings, or sometimes if I start the scan manually, and then solely on a same-day basis. The only way I can currently check my custom scan progress is by opening and then minimizing the Avast UI. 

Thanks for whatever help you can provide.  The snip is attached to this post.

--jjb


so you would like to see the scheduled scans in popup instead of main UI?

Martin Z:

Hi. Thanks for your response.  Answer: No.  See, on the first day I run a scheduled custom scan after an update, a message box automatically pops up.  The message box shows me how far along the scan is.  It indicates the scan's progress in terms of percentage and, I guess as a further visual clue, simultaneously shows scan progress using the moving bar method.  I've found this message tool helpful.  I can glance at my laptop screen while passing by my desk, see how far my scan has progressed, and thus use my scan-running time to take care of non-desk work, so I'll be all ready for desk work after the scan is completed.  Something like that, anyway. Unfortunately, the scan progress indicator, auto-popup message box (or whatever it's called) only works on Day One, but never appears again. I've been able to start it on a same-day basis by changing my UI settings, deleting then rescheduling my custom scan, cleanly removing and reinstalling the latest Avast edition (my process includes clean reinstall method Bob supplied me via link), and other techniques suggested here, but the message box still refuses to appear beyond Day One (except during a previous edition, when it agreed to show itself for three days before withdrawing again).  As I stated earlier, the auto-indicator is useful to me, but of course not as valuable as Avast's excellent (and free!) security protection, and its otherwise mostly user-friendly interface, despite some other bugs in the new edition (18.1.2326), as mentioned here and possibly yet to be encountered.  ?  I don't know why this particular tool continues to malfunction, but I'm hopeful that its failure doesn't much matter -- doesn't indicate other problems elsewhere -- and that it will eventually be fixed.  Is it a known bug? 

Well, whatever.  I'll attach the snip of it again, just in case my vocabulary and overall problem description here is misleading.   Sorry.  Thanks.  Thanks for your work with Avast, for providing and managing this forum, and for your individualized forum input/output.  !

almost a year later the GUI is STILL SUPER slow to load it images when click on task icon to open the program., I know this reported multiple times. is really that hard to fix that? and this is on SSD drive too boot, it much worse on HDD drive we talking 8+ seconds on HDD vs  2-3 seconds on SSD there should be such huge amount delay in show images

Yes, we also aren't happy with the opening "speed" and we are currently working on some optimizations that should make it faster in the upcoming 4-6 weeks.
