Thanks for update. Avast is  now again lightweight like before (no second AvastUI.exe).

- There is little bug in Test history - run time - always said "few sec" even my test was 15 min long.

- After each PC restart, scan history is gone.

- Fixed wrong text in the Recycle Bin context menu - now there is no text only icon (blank space where should be text).

Yes I agree, it feels so much lighter, it works super nice I have to say this is good update

So are there not supposed to be detailed reports for scans anymore, if there isn't a virus?

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.

Avast Rescue Disk unable to boot.  (again).

Gives "Unable to launch main Avast Rescue Disk shell, aswShell.exe!" error box.  Clicking OK in box results in system reboot.
 
Latest vps version for 20180216 installed in both CD and USB versions.  ARD worked just fine in version just prior 17.9.2327.

Media search of aswShell.exe not found.  Can anyone confirm?

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 think I also found a bug because sometimes when I open scan history avast crashes. I reported this so we will see. Avast IS, windows 10 home 64 bit version 1709. Also when I complete a scan it doesn't show up in scan history. This also looks like a bug.

Re: NEW Version: 18.1.2326 + The Scan Progress Popup Box
« Reply #69 on: February 17, 2018, 09:16:38 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.

I report, as I already do for the mobile android version the missing Italian translations and possible bugs present in this version

Operating system used: Windows 7 64 bit
Avast Version: 18.1.2326



In the first image I point out the lack of translation into Italian of some phrases.

In the second image, with the 'full trash' by clicking the right mouse button, the avast icon leaves without any word.

I hope this report will reach the avast team for corrections with the next program updates.

Google translate helped me with the translation in english
I apologize in advance in case of error.

Asyn:

Thanks for responding to my inquiry.  Sorry for the delay in responding to you.  My laptop system was frozen until late afternoon yesterday, and the Avast forum login site has not been accessible for me until now. 

The Control Panel Repair method you suggested was never really successful for me in the past.  However, just to be sure, I tried it again yesterday.  It not only failed to fix the message box problem, but it also froze during its run, and immobilized my entire laptop system along with it.  I've since freed my system, and cleanly removed and reinstalled Avast, which is now up and running.  phew.  Anyway, with the exception of my recent freeze-out experience, all the usual fix-it methods work for one day (Control Panel repair, resetting the scan, changing random interface settings, manually activating the scheduled scan, reinstalling Avast, etc.), but seem to give up by Day Two.  Any other ideas?  It's not a crucial problem, but the feature, if fully intact, would be helpful to me.   

Thanks again very much for your input.  I appreciate your work.
