Just wanted to point out that before I updated my avast to todays new beta from the previous 20.9 beta my computer was booting a bit slower than usual. Today when I've updated it is booting much better now.#

20.9 does NOT fix the 5+ minute shutdown despite the changelog claim otherwise

Read your previous replies (rather than posting all over the place), you have been given a link to download older avast versions.

update: spoke too soon, another 5+ minute shutdown earlier today on latest 20.9

okay, some good news to report, the very very newest 20.9 beta, not the one from last week but build 5730, finally seems to solve the shutdown problem, it's now back to seconds instead of many minutes


but unfortunately there is a new problem with 20.9, any GUI popup or attempt to bring up the menu immediately freezes the GUI and access to the rest of windows desktop until I use control-alt-delete to start the task manager

I basically cannot "touch" avast, the systray or the menus or it ghosts out, not even the X in the corner of any popup from Avast

it appears the core engine is still running though for what that is worth

since the changelog mentions GUI changes since 20.7 I believe, it's probably related to that

can avast tell me what registry setting to change to fallback to the old GUI interface/method? I won't be able to access it from the troubleshooting menus

Hello av4me,
Thanks for the report! Unfortunately, I'm having trouble reproducing this issue.
What kind of popup freezes the GUI? Could you please send me a screenshot?
Also, could you send me the contents of your log folder, located at C:\ProgramData\Avast Software\Avast\log? Either via the support tool or via michal.prokes@avast.com
