Why are you recommending an update when in the latest beta thread you're requesting that this problem be fixed ???

+1
The previous beta 2363 still had issues as described in this thread, the latest/new beta 2364 is now being tested and the verdict isn't out yet as to whether we have a smooth functioning GUI/program. :)

Turns out after a day of testing I find today that the GUI is not accessible due to UNRESPONSIVE Avast Taskbar Icon.
This issue in Not Fixed in the latest beta (2364)

Edit: A reboot has cleared the issue for now. Very glitching, unreliable GUI at this point it seems :-\

Edit: Avast is very aware of the issue and is working on it. :)

If Repair doesn't fix the problem, try the following:
If your Avast settings are not the default settings and you want them restored after the Clean Install, follow this before removing Avast.

Default settings as i can't change them since i can't open it.
Clean installed many time every new version and beta and nothing so far work.
As stated earlier in the thread even formatting windows does not help.

Ran some stability test last week
System is stable,no error on any hdd test,memtest86 stable for 20 pass,ran multiple stress test *prime,furmark,cinebench,3dmark* everything is rock solid
