Thanks for the post. Was the issue with the date and time of Avast's notification history (link to the topic below) fixed in between yesterday and today? If not, is it being addressed?

The Avast team, I just updated, is stuck on this screen, what the screen tells me is the following:
WE UPDATE YOUR AVAST FREE ANTIVIRUS
SCROLL TO SEE THE IMPROVEMENTS

note: As the attached image shows that there is no place for me to scroll to the next screen, I think it is a bug

I just updated Avast on a virtual machine to see if it was fixed, look at the result:

Guys, I believe it's another bug.
My native language is Brazilian Portuguese. In the attached image, you can see that English is mixed with Brazilian Portuguese.

Seems like this version is still rather buggy upon final public release.

Just in a test I did by installing it on the virtual machine, I already identified 3 supposed bugs. lol

Well perhaps the bugs will be fixed in one of those stealth updates.

I will wait and do tests with Avast here on my virtual machine.

I can confirm the translation issue and this may also be the reason for the date issue .... The date formats used in English are not the same as for other languages (French, Portuguese....)?
