Unfortunately the redundant reboot message is still happening. I had one today. 

How is it redundant when 19.8.2393 has only recently been released ? 

The update cycle may have been cycled over a few days, not everyone can get it at once.

It was called redundant in the release notes. Did you read it?

Yes it was, but if there have been recent updates that require a restart, that is hardly redundant.

There have but I'm skeptical that was the case today.

I decided to uninstall Avast Free 19.8.2393 and reinstall version 19.7.2388 on all my five Windows 7/10 PCs and laptops. The current release is too flaky. Fortunately Avast is a doddle to reinstall. It's a pity because the previous updates of version 19 have been very clean and non-disruptive. All good things must come to an end. I shall have to go back to trialling new updates again.

We'll add a setting so the user can turn this off if he wanted to

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.

All I did was to uninstall (ver. 19.8 ) and then installed the old (ver. 19.6) that was saved in my downloads. in avast settings changed the application setting to manual .so now my system is running ,bank mode works,the system is no longer slow,and I will not let avast update the application until they have a fix for 19.8..
The virus definitions will still update . hope they get a fix soon and post it here.

Well, an AV is no static software, so there always will be updates. ;)

The BSOD with memory integrity has been patched, yes, but turns out this was not the end for issues regarding it... As now, when switching it on, and restarting, like Windows wants, nothing happens, the setting simply remains turned off

Not here. I clicked on Restart windows. It took a while and windows restarted.
Then it took a while longer till everything again finished loading and the system was ready to use.
