Though with the Pro version you should stick with the Enhanced User Interface, much better.
The Enhanced is the only way to get access to the Pro features. But I don't think it's better, I love the skins, always like them.

How do I turn on the SUI?
Starting avast (ashavast.exe) or by the icon on system tray will open: a) or the Enhanced or b) the Simple... you choose and avast kept the last chosen option.
To run it directly, run ashSimpl.exe ;)

I don't see an option/switch using the  "icon on system tray ... will open: a) or the Enhanced or b) the Simple... ." The Avast window comes up that says it's checking the memory and when it's done it opens the AEUI.

However, I did click on ashSimpl.exe and got the SUI.

I'll go with your advice DavidR and use the AEUI so as to have access to the Pro features.

Thanks all,

Kerry

Precisely: ashavast (the splash screen) is started and then it will call or SUI or EUI, the last one called (i.e., it starts the last option you've run).

Just to be clear. I don't see or get an option to open the SUI. It automatically opens the EUI. The only way I got the SUI was to go into the Programs Files > avast > ashSimpl.exe.

Before renewing it would always automatically open with the SUI. Now that I understand the EUI window supports the Pro version I'm OK with it automatically opening the EUI.

The reason for which I began this post still exists, Tool Tray > Globe > About avast > still reads home version. From what I understand this is an avast error that hasn't been fixed yet.

Whew!

No. There is a menu under View... and there is an icon on the toolbar (the S of simple).

After you choose this, next time, avast will open the SUI and not the EUI.
