Avast Free Offline installer is not working on 2 Win 10 laptops so far when installed over existing avast 18.8.2356. When I restore from image backup, the live program update from the v18.8 GUI is (apparently) successful although I haven't yet found my old custom scans or a way to recreate them.

The offline installer results eventually in a product that will not run Avast service, so the GUI fails to start with a "Well, this is embarrassing" message. The entire sequence goes like:
>Run offline installer, custom install same components as v18.8 (about half of what's available)
>Reboot when instructed
>Run GUI, Software Updater shows Error w/Refresh button that does nothing, Smart scan hangs @33%, Wi-Fi Inspector hangs @0%
>Reboot again
>Try GUI again, get "Won't start" and Retry button does nothing.
>In Task Manager window, Avast installer comes and goes, same with Emergency updater, but eventually Avast service fails

Both systems are Win 10 v1809 with all current patches. Curious whether other failed installations have used the Offline installer.

If you're having a problem after an update, first try rebooting the system.
It may m=need to be restarted more than once.
If that doesn't help, try the following:

There is no option anywhere in this new version to modify existing scheduled scans, or to set up new scheduled scans.
not quite
As mentioned by Asyn (# 41), it is possible to configure new scheduled scans ... by setting up a custom scan.There is clock option.

OK so it is still there...

At least five mouse clicks to get to it in the custom scan option, and by the strange non intuitive option to click on a cog icon, and selecting settings...

That hardly user friendly for such an 'essential' function is it. Why did they decide to 'bury' it like this?

At least my previous scheduled weekly scan setting 'survived' the update, but no notification was issued in the notifications 'bell' after the scheduled weekly full scan completed last night (on both computers)

A good stable release.

I'm happy you are now able to see the files which are being scanned when a full scan is in progress. This ensures that users will not think the scan is stuck anymore.

The default automatic option when a scan is ran is : Repair > Virus Chest > Delete File. Why is there no option for No Action or Ask the user before the delete action? The same process could apply for the Core Shields. If there was a false positive...

The scans are set to generate a report file which will be located at C:/Program Files/Avast/Reports - there is no such location and running a scan doesn't create the path.

It is no longer possible to see when the last streaming update was received through the user interface. You were previously able to go to the Update section and it would be there...

If the Real Site component is not installed, it should not show up in Settings.

I see no reason why the option to Schedule Scans have been changed. I know you can create a custom scan and then create a schedule but why change it when it was fine before? The Quick Scan is still able to be scheduled via Custom Scans and so should the others.

There is no longer a voice when a threat has been detected. The sound is still there and I'm not sure if that has been done intentionally?

It would be nice to see the Ransomware Shield to protect "txt" file extensions by default.

Edit: Fixed typo.

I've reported this on the Developers Forum. I see Reports here, C:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast\report
(C:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast\report This folder is also hidden by default.)

Selecting Fix (recommended) moves file to chest if it can't fix.

Automatic update has caused the "UI failed to load " error.  I cannot open the program.  Can this be fixed without reinstalling and losing all my settings?  I have had to substitute another product anti-virus to have some protection.  I have used Avast for 10 years and prefer it but it is useless if it will not start properly.  What can I do?

What Operating System and what other security programs are installed ???

Using win7 pro 32 bit.  At time of update Zonealarm free firewall security program in use.  Have now added Zonealarm antvirus for interim protection. I will delete the Zonealarm anti-virus if there is a way to fix Avast.

Zone Alarm Firewall has been known to cause problems.
If you intend to go back to Avast, you'll also need to totally remove ZA AV.
You can get the tool from here: https://www.techsupportall.com/zonealarm-uninstall-tool/
