Got this after Reboot
Will do clean install

A clean installed resolved the UI message. When the installation was complete I did have to  Reinsert my 'Avast license file' to resolve the fact the AIS was now in "trial mode".  :)

Hi guys,

just FYI, the (re)scan option in virus chest is gone (and won't come back). :(

Side note, no need to wait for the stats to return either...

I have to say I'm totally unsurprised by this, considering it has been gone for so long, supposedly for revision.

just FYI, the (re)scan option in virus chest is gone (and won't come back). :(

I despair, that totally defies logic.  Unless avast are going to regularly scan files in the virus chest and restore them if no longer detected.  But I can't see them doing that, avast is getting blacker and blacker as useful functions are removed and functions added that have limited/no place in an antivirus program. 

I would have to ask what is achieved by removing a rescan option in the virus chest, certainly not a reduction in resource use or space. 

What used to have Avast stand out from the crowd is morphing into into the crowd an indistinguishable blob, some could say the same as the avast tray icon and orange blob.

It also makes a bit of a pigs ear of submitting files to the labs for analysis - how the hell do you test to see if they are now considered clean or infected if they were considered an FP.

I'm almost thinking Avast is morphing into AVG, rather than the other way round.

EDIT: incorrect duplicate quote.

I would have thought that during any considerations, that the status-quo should be maintained.
