Use updater to update to 18.1.2326 but systray icon animation only work when running scan.
- still remember the systray icon will animate even while surfing in the older version of Avast.

Well it looks like they have changed the way it used to work, it never animated when doing an on-demand scan only when on-access scans took place.

With the old version of the animation, some people complained that it didn't work with on-demand scans, it was explained that it was only for on-access scans.  Don't ask me for a link to this explanation, it was a long time ago and I'm working from memory.

Not sure how much control over this the Avast team has, but the Windows Security Center showing an exclamation point all because Avast has a program update is a bit annoying. I have it set to manual, which is basically ignore, yet it still reports this info to WSC. A minor complaint, but still.

I have avast updates set to automated, but I am usually waiting a couple of days until auto-update kicks in (it usually does after the initial hotfixes are out).
I have set avast to ignore the notifications about updates, but Windows Defender still keeps saying avast needs my attention. It should dismiss the message as soon as it is dismissed in avast.

This is fixed in this version, so next update should be without exclamation mark

I've got a second AvastUI.exe running and I never got the part of the update where it asked me if I wanted to install chrome, is that gone now?  But how do I get rid of the second AvastUI.exe running?  I thought that was gone.

the second process can still appear. If you close the main window there should be just one running (tray icon). The offer of Chrome is not displayed after every update, usually every 90 days or so..

Do I have to turn off the Avast Anti-Exploit module if I have turned on Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit?

No, you can have both. The technology of Avast Anti-Exploit is kind of similar to Behavioral Shield, but with focus on different characteristics (and different malware behavior). It runs on background and evaluates the processes behavior. It also scans the process for know virus signatures in certain trigger points.

Anyway, if you find some incompatibility with 3rd party products (like Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit), please let us known. Thank you.
