I've got real problems with this new version, 19.8.  Running Windows 7.  Right-click on Avast icon in sys. tray and try to check for Program updates and it won't work half the time to tell me if I have any new program updates. I can't get to the Engines and definitions and Programs screen.  I have to go find it another way and click on a millions things to get to that screen to see if I have a new Program update.   I manually download my new program versions since it caused problems before when it automatically downloaded.  Also I keep getting a blue new notifications warning! on my Avast icon.  I don't even see where to check for what the notification is.  I can't even turn it off.  I think it's just a bug since I never got these notifications in the previous version.  I need to restart my computer to make it disappear.  I turned off my notifications and have it in silent mode now and I'll see if that works. The previous version worked just fine and I didn't have any problems with it.  Get all these problems fixed.  This new version sucks!

beckyrutecki,

I experience similar issues with Windows 7 laptop.
I got to the UI screen and it would try for to update the program to new version then it failed at least 4 times, eventually it worked but it took ages.

My problems went away, after totally uninstalling avast, then installed v19.7.4674, then updated to the latest.
(When earlier it updated automatically, with probably more versions in between, or with some older version's remains, it did not work, hence the uninstall above.)
Hope this helps someone who also could not work with the new version at the moment, but wants to find a way to make it work.
Best of luck!

If Repair doesn't fix the problem, try the following:
If your Avast settings are not the default settings and you want them restored after the Clean Install, follow this before removing Avast.

Very nice share thanks for that. I will save the links. If I may, I want to make a clean install of Avast Premium Security from my existing Avast IS. My internet connection is poor at the moment (I am poor..tsk) and the upgrade always fails due to my ISP cutting me out. Is the download link below correct for a clean install?

re:
Premium Security (formerly Premier): http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_premier_antivirus_setup_offline.exe

Can my existing license activate Avast Premium Security?

I have still an Avast Premier license unused and will be using it once this existing installation expires after 170 days.

Can my unused Avast Premier license activate Avast Premium Security?

Thanks all!

Just made another attempt to update from 19.7.2388 to 19.8.2393.  Blue Screen after restart and Windows 10 Core Isolation still disabled.  Processor is Intel Core i3-3220.  Also three Avast UIs running.

Reverting to 19.7.2388 again.

Avast Premium Security - FAQs
https://support.avast.com/en-us/article/89/

Changes to existing products

How does the launch of Avast Premium Security affect Avast Premier?
After the update to application version 19.7, we will automatically upgrade existing Avast Premier users to Avast Premium Security.

What happens after the upgrade?
You can continue to use all features that were included in Avast Premier.

From the end of September, Avast Premier users will receive an additional upgrade to Avast Premium Security (Multi-Device), which allows you to activate Avast Premium Security on up to 10 devices across multiple platforms.

-- Does this mean existing Avast Premier who has upgraded to Avast Security Premium will get an additional upgrade from "Single-device" to "Multi-device"...?




How does the launch of Avast Premium Security affect Avast Internet Security and Avast Pro Antivirus?
Avast Internet Security and Avast Pro Antivirus are no longer available for purchase and we are in the process of discontinuing support for these products. Existing users are gradually being upgraded to Avast Premium Security.

What happens after the upgrade?

You can continue to use all features that were included in your previous version of Avast Antivirus.
Avast Premium Security is an upgrade to your current Antivirus protection. It includes all the features included in Avast Internet Security, and additionally includes Webcam Shield, Data Shredder, and automatic updates in Software Updater.

You are upgraded to Avast Premium Security (Single-Device). Depending how many PCs your original subscription protected, you may receive an additional upgrade to Avast Premium Security (Multi-Device) from the end of September.The Multi-Device subscription option allows you to activate Avast Premium Security on up to 10 devices across multiple platforms.

-- Does this mean existing Avast IS who has upgraded to Avast Security Premium may (or may not) get an additional upgrade from "Single-device" to "Multi-device"...?

1. Yes. :)
2. See quote from Benko below.

The whole license migration matrix is a beast, but these examples should cover the majority of cases:
  • Avast Premier users (all seat variants) -> Avast Premium Security Multi-Device
  • Avast Internet Security 1 Seat -> Avast Premium Security
  • Avast Internet Security 3+ Seats ->  Avast Premium Security Multi-Device
  • Avast Pro 1 Seat -> Avast Premium Security
  • Avast Pro 3+ Seats ->  Avast Premium Security Multi-device
