This morning on my XP PRO SP3 computer "behaviour shield" did not come up enabled. Had to do it manually. Guess this is one of those bugs the programmers just can not locate.

If you didn't constantly edit your posts and continually threaten to remove avast then only to return with more confusion then you likely wouldn't be putting yourself in the place of being the forum joke, those ridiculous signature phrases you keep coming up with only give reason for more jokes on your part.

I guess after all these years of members putting up with your lack of learning anything and total disrespect for those who reply to your ongoing confusing posts only to have you keep deleting posts and editing post after post make members wish you would just move on and stop wasting our time.

We had that blue dot long ago and was then thankfully gone. Now it's back? It's annoying as it drives my OCD insane. I have to check notifications just so that blue crap goes away.

Yes I too remember it and was thankful it was gone.

As Bob said some notifications are so trivial as to be pointless.  Users are really only interested in serious issues, those that need attention now.  If it gets to be serious, then it should be a toaster popup or full blown alert.

Who comes up with these ideas.....bells and whistles......and BLue Dots.
Geeeez ::)

Hi there, is there any workaround to get rid of this annoying issue? I don't know with other OS build, it happens on Windows 10 April Update 1803 (RS4) build 10.0.17134.112






I have tried to fix it as suggested, but it comes again after restart. So far I just ignore it, but it would be better if there is a permanent solution.

I'm beginning to get annoyed by repeating myself in these forums. I have now installed Avast v.18.5.2342 free edition. Update with the offline installer or install via a clean install makes no difference to the issue. Problem is occurring on 2 different Windows 10 Pro version 1803 (OS build 17134.112) 64-bit PCs.

When I perform a Smart Scan, it is checking for Sensitive Data, which is a paid module that I have not paid for. Also the Software Updater component is not being performed in a Smart Scan.

The Sensitive Data problem occurred a while back in v.17.8.2318 and also in v.18.4.2338 which I previously reported. The Software Updater problem is a new problem.

Please can someone advise on how to turn off the Sensitive Data check in Smart Scan and get Smart Scan to run the Software Updater component?

… and in addition, clicking Resolve All after running a Smart Scan often results in a blank (white) Avast user interface. The only way I can fix Avast when this occurs is by rebooting.

Hi
I've found serious bug in the newest release 18.5.2342
After updating Avast, when Windows starts up there are one of these bluescreens:
BAD_POOL_CALLER, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA, SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED

Please fix it soon.

Windows XP 32bit
How did you update ???

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:
https://goo.gl/4Ptzkf
If you need additional help with the Clean Install, watch this:
https://youtu.be/p-h3myRD51A

As always I've updated Avast in the update page.

Everytime bluescreen appears there's something with NDIS.sys.

I've tried fixing Avast. Maybe it will help. Don't know.


Thanks for reply

Hello,

The same problems on my Windows XP SP3, as with version 18.4 and 18.5 betas:
- Avast service does not start!
- and - what follows - UI Failed to load.

I have restored my system from backup to a configuration with working Avast 18.2.
So - I understand - Windows components including services are OK.
Then I have upgraded Avast to version 18.5 - Avast service in this version does not start.

I have also removed previous version with avastclear and made an offline installation of 18.5 - the same problem.

Any ideas what to do next?

AW

I'm having another bluescreens. Something's messed up with these release of Avast :o Please fix it. I never got such bluescreens. Where should I report it? I can send minidumps.


Today Avast Secure Browser installed without my knowledge. But more annoying thing is that it changed my default browser to Avast Secure Browser and it automaticlly autoruns with Windows :o . I've changed it back, but please make it choosable by the user, not to force anyone to use it...

Why it installed on Windows XP despite it's not supported OS? Bug?


Thanks for still supporting Windows XP but fix bugs please

Just finished upgrading AIS to latest version, 18.5.2342.  Bug in Avast Shields Control reporting 1 shield inactive now fixed.

Thanks bob3160 for reporting issue with Avast SecureLine Beta being vamoosed and VPN feature in AIS being automatically installed despite using Custom Install and unchecking this before beginning install; Confirmed. 

Licensing issue (conflict) between single-use stand-alone beta and paid-for VPN (AIS) still needs to be addressed Cannot run two separate systems online at the same time, one with beta vpn, the other paid vpn.)

As always, did a clean install, never do an over-the-top install or online install.

Nice job.

[EDIT:]  Updated second system to latest version. 
Only two glitches:
  • Install for Google Chrome had box already ticked for install
  • A file called avastremediation.exe needed to be allowed to run at then end of install
A clean install was also done on this system, allowing Windows Defender to run again between uninstall and install of AIS.

This issue is now fixed please restart your PC if you still see this error
