possible bug - notification not working
« on: September 01, 2019, 07:03:08 AM »
Notification is not working for being notified when a new antivirus engine is available.  When set to Ask when update is available no notification is given.  I can see that a update is available from within the product (Free Avast).  This happens on both Windows 10 home and Windows 10 Pro.

Seems to be a common issue. I also have that Bug, been for a while now.
I believe Avast is aware. :)

Edit: Sometimes I see a Triangle/Exclamation mark over Avast Icon which leads me to open the UI and see Update is Available.....and sometimes I don't get any notification. :-\
