Confirmed, twice reboots were needed.

Found issues:
- "Licenses on this PC" in "My License" shows "Loading" forever
- "My Licenses" => Enter Activation Code => Use a license file => "ENTER" button start circling without inserting license
- "Avast Store" and "About" are not working

My License is loading forever for me as well.
After clicking Avast Store and About, nothing happened. After a while, the 2 menu entries disappeared and I was logged out of my Avast account.

Right clicking the Avast icon in the System Tray and clicking Subscription information brings you to the old Subscription page, even though it is removed.

Regarding new subscription menu - "Avast Store" and "About" should disappear after the next UI update. Just restart the computer, it should do the trick.

Rest of the issues will be investigated as we did not induce it before releasing the beta.

Thanks for the reports so far.

During a Smart Scan the Avast UI appears to have crashed. It was not possible to relaunch it until after a system restart.

Avast secure browser is the successor of Avast Safe Zone and it's a fork from the chromium repository modified by avast. Chromium dropped support for XP time ago and as result, Avast secure browser dropped it too and is compatible with Windows 7 and up, which is fine.
What's weird, though, is that after I installed the latest beta, every time I boot my computer an error message pops up saying that Avast couldn't find a directory in app data in which there should be "avast secure browser checker.exe". I personally checked the directory and the file is there. Out of curiosity, I tried to run it, but it didn't do anything.

I don't know what Avast is trying to do, but whatever it is, I think it should be disabled if it detects that is Windows XP, in order to avoid to show the error.
