Is there any chance you guys can show us the Exploit and Rootkit popups as it's unlikely we'll be able to see them anytime soon ourselves and since we can't induce them like for file detections using EICAR...

Thanks for the update, but so far it seems not to have solved the "UI Failed to load" issue on Avast Premier after windows 10 update (1803).
After installing version 2338, after restarting the PC got the "UI Failed to load" error again.
Are you fixing problems or creating additional ones?

The 'UI failed to load' is still occurring.

It happened to me AGAIN after I tried to update to this version on my Windows 10 laptop.

There needs to be a permanent fix.

I'd appreciate any help with this.

Thank you.

For some reason i had to restart my PC twice to get all the updated functionalities. Maybe others should try this too.

Using the Full Offline Installer and upgraded fine on XP PRO SP3 and on Windows 10 Home 64 computers. But please, put the Settings Button back on the Left Side where it was before and should stay. Also when you bring up the Licenses Page, the Close button (X) is on the Upper Left ... Normal convention for programs is the Close Button should be in the Upper Right Corner
Dell Dimension 8200 P4 1.8Ghz Windows XP PRO SP3
Toshiba Satellite C855-S5347 Celeron B830 1.8Ghz
Windows 10 Home 64 Bit Version 1709 Build 16299.192
Both are running latest Avast Free 18.5.2342 Build 18.5.3931.0

Avast failed at the first two restarts after the program update. It started fine at the third and two subsequent restarts, I wonder if it just needed the update to take before the problem was resolved. Anyway ... that's enough restarts for one evening.

Too many restarts for me.

A permanent fix needs to be issued.  :-\

I managed to get it going for now (Avast Premier. Did a clean install, worked fine. Switched off the machine, when after a while I switched it on again, there it was again the UI failed to load. Rebooted and so far it is working, but this is getting ridiculous and rather upsetting.
Now on top of that a minor question: How to deactivate the bothering promotional messages for other avast products in Avast Premier?

Unfortunately that doesn't help me because I'm using Avast Free.  :'(
