Now on top of that a minor question: How to deactivate the bothering promotional messages for other avast products in Avast Premier?
Hi Victor, this has been moved to privacy settings - see screenshot.
Thanks Asyn

The Close button in the Notification area doesn't appear to work (well it doesn't) and the only way out is the 'X' top left of the window.

Re: NEW Version: 18.4.2338 & Scan Button Unconfigured Issue

Are the developers working on this bug and will it be eventually be fixed.
Yes. As workaround create a custom scan, that fixed it for me.

Thanks Asyn...I already have a 'custom scan which disappears whenever the Scan Button Unconfigured Issue happens-if I access Custom Scan any created Custom Scan does not exist anymore.  If I do a restore of settings/configuration that was made when unconfigured scan buttons were all functional then custom scan is restored too; as it was part of the created backup the restore is made from.
Can you be more specific regards creating a custom scan as a workaround.  Is it scheduled for example to run at a certain time? Am wondering are you doing something  I am not doing to preserve the custom scan even when issue happens.  Gary

1. Nope, just a random custom scan without any schedules.
2. Well, I didn't restore any settings afterwards. Hope this helps.

- Dropdown menu in top bar
Seems that devs forgot to include this change in the offline installers.
After performing a clean offline install of v18.4.2338, the main window takes a very long time to load at first launch.
..and when it has finnished loading, it presents you with the old GUI, without the new dropdown menu in the top bar.
The new GUI (with the dropdown menu), doesn't appear until an internet connection has been established!

I used the Full Offline Installer for Avast Free and we get the Hamburger menu to get to Settings & Licenses on it. It also shows the correct version and build .. 18.4.2338 (build 18.4.3895.0)

You probably allowed it to access the internet then.

Even the offline installer eventually still needs internet.

I don't know if it did or didn't .. my computers are on line when the update is done, then Avast asks for it to reboot.

Yes, for automatic virus definition updates, of course.
However, being offline installers and all, the complete GUI, and every potential changes to it, should be included in the package!
Personally, I never allow any software to connect to the internet, until I've configured everything to my liking.

The Close button in the Notification area doesn't appear to work (well it doesn't) and the only way out is the 'X' top left of the window.

Confirmed, same here ;-) We will update UI next week and fix this.
