I, too, have been getting this for a while now.
Been ignoring it as it wasn't disruptive to my games or anything.
However, now I'm getting where the GUI opens at random as well, which is disruptive.

I'm just glad to know I'm not alone on these issues as I was getting worried I was either hacked or some virus got through and I was gonna be in for another full reinstall...


Yeah... it does seem to have actually gotten worse.
Before it was just a brief popup, but now it's actually taking focus away.

For anyone wondering what's happening with it now:
1. Blank Avast popup opens and then closes.
2. Normal Avast screen opens (the one where it's open to the Status tab) is now front and center.
3. Now requires that window to be closed as it has taken focus away from whatever you were doing.

Same issue here. Avast randomly pops up, even when I am playing a game in silent mode and it then minimises the game. No reason for it at all.

I do have Spybot installed to check for spyware but it has never interfered with Avast before, I have always used the two together.

Same thing. Driving me crazy. Seems to happen about once every hour. Beyond annoying.

Ha HaHa subliminal what ever…
So is anyone else using free and no longer getting adds?
It feels to me like the pop-ups behave like adds did.

But if you don’t get adds because you pay to use
then there’s no connection.

I'm a premium owner and still get ads.
The pop-ups seem to be happening when Avast updates virus definitions.
Weird bug to start happening out of nowhere, but that's technology for ya.

I think you can mitigate the intrusion by just having the window already open in the background.

Another that has been getting random split second pop ups to then change to completely opening the UI on it's own while gaming last night.
Premium member also.

At first I got random split second blank pop ups too for months.
This week isn't blank anymore but Avast UI pop ups completely, and it doesn't disappear unless I close it manually.

"Repair" option in Avast setting doesn't works, I still get the pop ups.

==========

Fyi, I don't install another anti virus or anti malware software, and I don't change any setting both Avast and Windows.

Hi Everyone, Thanks for the efforts to you guys & the avast team, i can confirm that my problem is finally fixed, i have not been getting any annoying pop-up for 2 days, so the problems seems to have been fixed, if anyone still encounters the problem, you might have to restart your PC to take effect after the update

PS:  FYI, for the issue i encountered, i did try to leave avast window open but minimized, but that didn't work as it kept popping up, i am premium user too, none the less glad to get this fixed, hope it's solved it for everyone too
