Yes, having stats back would be useful.
  • Did a clean install of 18.3.2333 AIS only to find avast disabled on reboot.
  • Inserted license and avast activated.
  • Went to GUI to run some features and several were missing.
See attached below for missing paid for features:
  • Did a repair and no change.
  • Did a change, confirmed features were ticked off, no change.
  • Considered a system image backup to restore system to latest image
  • Remembered a bug (this one has been in place for several years now) in SecureDNS/Real Site that required a system reboot with the internet connected to activate even when disabled.
  • Rebooted to enable this feature.
I rebooted eight times before I successfully hit on this fix.   :)

Hint:  Seems an avast server is needed to validate features on install and this is done at first run very early in the system boot. 

[EDIT:]  Didn't say, but all six missing features were live and accessible after the last reboot while connected to the internet.

This version still causes DHCP NACK error in windows event manager/router. I described it in 18.2 thread.

Still getting "Behavior Shield Not Enabled" on the XP PRO SP3 computer ... Happened a couple of times so far, since the latest version of Avast Free was installed. No issues on the Windows 10 Home 64 bit computer.

Hello,
When installing the program, I selected the following component:security browser extension.
After installation, I can not see it in the Chrome browser add-ons.
I should see the following in the extensions:Avast Online Security?
What is the reason why the plugin is not installed yet?
Regards

yes it should install Avast Online Security to Chrome, but you still need to activate it in Chrome..(Google rules)..if you open the CHrome extensions page it's not there?

If it's not listed in Chrome,

you can manually install it from the Chrome store,

I'm running Avast free, and updated from 17.9.2322 to 18.3.2333 via the GUI. Now the system tray icon is animated all the time, slowly changing from the original blob to a circle and back again, without any scan running. Is this the way it's supposed to be, does it mean anything?

Previously it should only be animated when real-time scanning (file system shield, web shield,etc.) is in progress and not for on-demand scans. 

Now it would appear that it may also animate when on-demand scans are running and also when you do a Windows Explorer context menu scan (right click on a folder). I also tested some other on-demand scans, Targeted Scan (Folder Select) and the Smart Scan, both animated the tray icon..

So if you aren't running an on-demand then it is likely one of the real-time shields is scanning activity.

The icon is animated without any browser started, and I'm not running any scan.

I'm not seeing that on my system with avast free 18.3.2333 (minimal installation) when I'm not running a scan and I have no other activity (like when compiling this post) the tray icon is inactive. 

Do you have any other programs running that may be generating activity (check in task manager) ?

No other programs running (checked task manager). This behaviour started immediately after updating to latest version today.
By the way, I'm running Windows 7.

That's not normal behavior. Try the following: Repair Avast:
Control Panel> Program and Features (Add/remove program)>Select Avast> Select Repair. Reboot when completed
https://www.avast.com/faq.php?article=AVKB204

If Repair doesn't fix the problem, try the following:
Clean Install of Avast:
