You could try the latest beta: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=15
No thanks, don't want to be an Avast guinea pig
NP, you need to wait for the release version then.

Then I guess it is a waiting game until the fix in version 19.4 (as mentioned by Alikhan in Reply #12) is released and not in beta.

We really shouldn't have to though.
We pay for this stuff to work and the operating system is not new

Unfortunately the process of bug resolution, identifying/rectifying/testing/beta-testing and final release (can be a lengthy one) as either part of the next program update or a fix delivered via a VPS update.

Then why not just roll back to the previous version until Avast have it fixed?
Avast have caused the issue, they should take responsibility for it

Roll back for whom (how would Avast know who to roll back), not everyone is impacted by this bug, those who aren't impacted by the bug wouldn't want to roll back. 

Then there are the potential issues with any rollback, what change caused this problem for those impacted.  If it were security related then you would be exposing everyone to that vulnerability.  Or that vulnerability and other changes (bug fixes possibly) in the 19.3.2369 would also have to be re applied, or should they wait also.  Or wait fro them to be applied to 19.4 or possibly even later 19.5.

This certainly isn't something that can be rushed.

I think the bug fixing process is more like a monthly version, no more and no less, it's why the version post-its now clearly mention the month (Mar 2019)
I'm sure that for a problem like this one, avast could release an update much faster but will wait until mid-April no matter what.
Personally, I don't like this type of policy, especially since it is a security tool  :(

Which to a certain degree shows the urgency required. 

That however, doesn't get round any potential issues related to rolling back I mentioned in my earlier post.

Whilst like Chris.. I don't particularly like this bug resolution process.

I'm playing devils advocate on which might be more problematic, a quick resolution of the bug or the potential problems of a version roll back for everyone and possibly losing any security updates that might have been in the 19.3.2369 program version.

Not sure if you work for Avast, if you don't I apologise in advance.

If you do what a glib reply!
Not all of us are computer nerds and nearly all of us didn't know what was causing our issue, we just let Avast do it's thing and IT created the problem, all by itself.

It took me over an hour to track down that it was Avast software I paid for that was causing an issue on my pc.
So Avast not really bothering to help doesn't bode well for whether I will continue to use Avast when my subscription expires.

I don't work for avast, I'm a user just like yourself.

I did some time as a systems analyst/programmer so I have an idea of what goes on in the background when a bug is reported.  Finding exactly what caused it has to be found, how to resolve it and how this fix/resolution might impact on other functions within the program.  Then it has to be tested before release, usually through QA, Alpha testing and the Beta testing channel before being released.

As has been mentioned earlier in the topic this is meant to be resolved in the 19.4 release and there is a beta testing session ongoing and it is on its 2nd beta update 19.4.2371.

Yes, don't forget that some people had problems with the old version.
For my part, I could no longer use my VPN with the avast firewall.

The new 19.4.2374 (April 2019) regular program update has now been released https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=226462.0, time to check and see if this issue has been resolved.

19.4.2375 seems to have fixed the autochk/chkdsk on the system drive for me...however a new problem came up. See

Thanks for the confirmation.

I have answered your post, I just wonder if the certificate needs reimporting again.
