As I said, for me the UI loads faster than in the last release.

Looks like the duration of the scan (incorrectly reported as a few seconds) in Scan History has been resolved.  I ran a Quick Scan and timed it at 3 minutes and 2.47 seconds.  The scan History reported it as 3 minutes for 22253 files in 5742 folders for 7.8GB of data.

EDIT:  Interestingly scan details prior to this update are now reporting what would appear to be actual times and not the 'a few seconds' text they previously displayed.

A good stable release which hasn't seemed to introduce any new bugs. The UI opening is a bit faster than before but can still be significantly improved.

More works needs to be done to:

- fix the delay of Avast notification alerts and the sound.  Currently, the sound comes first and then the notification alert later... they should be in sync.
- add useful stats to the Scan UI
- start planning to bring the stats back for the shields

I though Avast had already said that the Stats wouldn't be coming back ?

Did the update using the full offline installer on both machines and it went well. But on my old Dell Dimension 8200 P4 1.6Ghz 2GB RAM with XP PRO SP3 it does take a little while to put the Avast Icon in the System Tray ... It loads much faster on my Toshiaba Laptop with Windows 10 Home 64 Build 1709 (that machine has Celeron B830 at 1.8GHZ & 4GB RAM)

EMAIL SIGNATURE Back to the old style??

Hi All,
Compliments on this version. All working better and firewall now working with IPV6 emails. After doing this update I noticed my email signature (notes) are that if the old style . . .

 Avast logo    

This email has been checked for viruses by Avast antivirus software. 

rather than the new look . . .

    Virus-free. www.avast.com

Not an issue, just wondering if the new signature design can be restored.

ALSO, any chance we can add a pause for scanning and option to shut down, sleep and turn off post a scan ??

Thank You

Patiently waiting for Windows 10 1803 Release, then so reinstalling Avast,  planning on a Clean install of Spring Creators 1803, as was switching between Avast and Defender trying both to see which one i really liked on my newer system,  decision made to stick with Avast, now just have to wait til 1803 fully released, then get it installed cleanly, and make sure system up to date,  then update a few drivers, then reinstall Avast i think when done with that.

if that is proper way to do that, installing the Drivers first, then Avast once all that in before other 3rd party programs

Yes, installing drivers first is a good idea to avoid any compatibility issues / false-detections (not that I've experienced any), but at the same time you want to minimize your PC's exposure to activity without Avast protection up and running.

Confirmed, stats are history and won't come back.

I thought Avast meant the stats were not planned.

EDIT:

The stats will be coming back in the future but they are not currently planned yet - that doesn't mean they will not be coming back.

MartinZ has confirmed that to me "In future yes but not in 2 or 3 months" because there are other priorities at this moment of time.

Well, we've heard that (or similar) many times before. But OK, let's see... ;)

Right from the time we were told it was being removed for a revision/revamp some considerable time ago, we are talking years not months ago.

Personally I'm not particularly fond of stats (lies, damn lies and statistics) and one way or another won't lose any sleep over there non return.  But if they say they will be back after a revision, I at least expect them to follow through on it.

And if stats come back, make them useful.
Not picture book level.

don't worry the bugs are still there but well hidden ;-)

stats won't return earlier than Q3/Q4...focus is now on settings and licensing

Indeed, the stats have been removed for years (in June 2016, no?), Which does not prevent that they had to be postponed when avast would have a little time (one or two months).
You said it yourself that the return was planned for September 2016 at the time.

I also know that you have many times given your opinion on the disinterest of this tool, I think it is clear, but also know that there are other users who find an interest

As far as I'm concerned, I've been repeating myself since time, I found an interest in the 5 lines of avast analysis in real time, in a glance one's eye over we could see what was happening in the background (opening of files, third site annalised, ....)
