Some are reporting that "Full scan immediately ends" on running, but runs second time around.  This I believe was also in 19.7.

I also detected 2 AvastUI.exe processes and excessive memory consumption.
Whether normal or not I can't say!

Does the banking mode open correctly ?
as far as I'm concerned, the (grey) window well opens  but with nothing more than closing and switching to the desktop... so unusable.
The same remark was made by another member of the French forum

On the other hand, when updating, I was also notified to migrate to premium without waiting for the end of the year.
The problem is that I restarted my pc to update the program and I can no longer find the message to migrate.
How can I find it now?

Edit : sorry , found in the settings -> subscriptions and not directly in "subscriptions"

It's not opening the browser.
This happens either via the right click System Tray Avast icon function or opening it via the Security & Privacy center in the Secure Browser.

I can confirm, same issue here with the bank mode! Greyed out and not opening the browser.

Hope this will be fixed very soon via stream update or emergency update since this a critical feature in the product.

Waiting for your reply Avast team  :-\

I also find another bug that i think someone already reported in beta, but still remains in stable.  The virus definitions number on section: about are not correctly presented since they should be the same as the vps update.

Hello.
This new version still DOES NOT solve the problem with the Mail Shield turning off and staying off after each reboot.
Even if those of us with this problem tick the Enable Mail Shield option, it doesn't stick and emails aren't scanned or protected.
The solution provided of having Anti-Spam enabled does nothing to address this issue.

I've noticed that it seems to be a problem for those of us still using Win7. I've read in another topic that Win10 users have no such problem. Until I switch to Win10, I hope Avast will resolve this problem asap.

Thanks

Smarter Smart Scan - Virus scan now deals with threats automatically, so you don’t have to sit through our scans

There's no choice about this? I do NOT like security software automatically 'fixing' things without asking. I've had enough times when security software has 'fixed' things that were not actually a problem, and in doing so wrecked things, someteimes very badly. I had every option set to ask what to do, not automatically take action. That's not going to work on Smart Scans now? Please tell me there's still an option to set its actions to 'ask'. If not I'll have to disable Smart Scans. And if that's not possible I'll be uninstalling it and cancelling my subscription. This is a very serious issue for me.

I don't see anything special in the "Top Right Menu"
