I think we saw that with the 'Protected by avast' boot-time notification poll topic.
Sorry the off topic, but this message appeared only once for me.
Should it appear in each boot? ???

No, because it has been canned/removed so you shouldn't see it at all now.

i finally realized
why people complain, it's because the Like button is always on top even if the main window height is too small and it creates the 'scroll down/up' phenomen

i not noticed it as my window height is double of normal height (really great we can resize the whole avast control UI window)

yeah this is definitely bad, the Like button should in case of 'not enough height' become equal to the rest of left buttons and be visible only when scrolled down

ofcourse the option to disable it in next update is very nice bonus

Why was it removed?

it wasn't removed exactly per se, You can still enable it (experimental) via registry entry

As a result of the response in the Poll that Vlk created about it. I believe that there was a post with a piece about being able to change the registry settings to restore it.
