So this explains what is the new notification area,but does not answer the problem

I have the same question ,how do we clear these notifications from the list.The old interface allowed to dismiss and this will clear the issues
Now you say this is called history,but how do we clear this from the list? Why did you change something that worked before but now seems not possible to do?

p.s what on earth is with these verification letters before being able to post?Are they hieroglyphics or what?
If you need to implement this then please at least make them readable,it has taken 6 attempts to post this and i think i got it in thend by complete luck

Hello Zay,
right now it is not possible to clear history/activities. Thanks to this feedback we are reworking it again.

Thanks i hope you will rework it to be able to clear the list as it was before.It makes no sense to have a list of "history" that we are unable to clear once we have read it.

Can't update, it just runs for a minute saying installing the update, after that red text 'Something went wrong and the update failed. Try again.' Currently having v. 19.6.2383 -  19.6.4546.517.

Still not working, you can't update the program, gives the same 'Something went wrong...' message everytime. When is it gonna get fixed..

Virus db updates have been working normally again.

edit: got it working, finally. seems that windows update broke the firewall and it couldn't update settings for new programs anymore.  sorry for blaming avast with this one. should have guessed it has something to do with the windows update once again.

Hi, just a quick note that:
- In the latest 19.7 version, separated data consent, the new entry in Personal Privacy settings (...analysis of product performance and usage) now mirrors the setting of original (merged) data sharing property. So if the previous one was off, both are off now.
- Privacy policy documentation was updated

I'm unconventional and use the offline installer with my Ethernet device disabled during the install to update Avast! (free).  Do the offline installer versions get updated to the "latest version" in this sort of situation?  What I get when I download now compares the same with my original download earlier.

Whilst it is called an off-line installer, that can depend on your OS as there are different elements that may require an on-line connection.  Even if using the so called off-line installation file.

After this update upon startup PING.EXE and TRACERT.EXE both run at startup, is this happening to anyone else?
I'm running a Windows 7 64bit machine and have never witnessed this until after I updated today.

Any info?
I'm sitting on Win7-64, so for now just disabled avast update and waiting for answer.

Taking a wild stab in the dark, but avast does checks to ensure no DNS hijacking.  I don't know how exactly they do this, but ping and tracert be a possible method.

I just made the mistake of installing Avast Premium Security yesterday on home built desktop PC with Windows 10 Pro and that was a big mistake.  How can I go back to the previous version?

These are the issues I have so far:

1. On the reboot after install it hung forever. It took several attempts of rebooting to get the machine going again. 
2. Now, unless I keep pressing the F8 key numerous times during bootup, my MS USB keyboard will not function after bootup, is not shown in Control Panel devises, and cannot be found when search for, but the "on light is green" so it gets power, just not there. Even if I try all the USB plugs.  But if I keep pressing the F8 key during startup then the keyboard works.  Go figure that one!
3. I no longer can access my 3 remote analog security cams on DVR. They require the old browser IE and ActiveX to view on a PC.  Yes, I went into Avast and checked IE Browser and all Cam related apps I could see listed as approved apps.  ActiveX was not on the list to check though.  Yes, I went into the browser security and rechecked the ActiveX items that mysteriously became unchecked.   Yes, I stuck in the URL's of my cameras into Avast to allow those URL's, as well as in the browsers security settings as safe URL's too!  Yes, I cleared the browser cache.  No, the activeX software still will not open when I put in the URL's of my camera's into IE.  I'm NOT HAPPY THAT I CANNOT MONITOR PROPERTY FROM MY PC NOW SINCE THE NEW AVAST ULTIMATE INSTALL!
4. I ran "sfc /scannow" and that did not fix anything. I haven't run all my software yet to find if other issues, but these issues are plenty annoying enough so far, and I would like to go back to previous version of Avast, as not so buggy. How do I do that???
5. I also hate this forum security Verification letters, they are way to blurred out to read, and the "Listen to the letters" does not indicate if caps or not!  So, it takes multiple attempts to post anything!!!

Security verification is there for the first 3 posts to prevent spammers.
Make sure your firewall setting is set to private.
