No, there have been no skins in avast since avast5 and that hasn't changed in avast6 and is not likely to do so.

~~hmm...If there are skins for Avast 5, is it possible to have a skin like the one I posted in the original topic?

Thanks Again ^^

Hi Red :)

By design de GUI of Avast! 6, but also Avast! 5, simply is/was not skinnable.

My comment about no skins since avast5, poorly worded, included avast5 not having skins. avast 4.8 was the last skinned GUI.

No, the avastUI is fixed as such and reflects the avast corporate colour scheme in the avast web site, blog and forums, etc.

The self-defence module is also there to prevent malware from modifying/stopping avast.

I have been using avast for over seven years and the avast5 & avast6 GUI is much better, than avast 4.x even with skins it wasn't very easy to navigate and consequently users didn't find it that friendly. Not to mention in reviews the most commonly talked about thing was the quirky media player interface, not how good the features, protection, etc. were.

I like the overall scheme of avast, but it would be cool if transparency was enabled so that it goes more along with WIndows 7

I like that.
Igor said that color scheme will be difficult to change.
Maybe transparency is the last resource we can ask for...

I think avast doesn't need skins cause it would cause a bloat to the anti-virus and an anti-virus doesn't need to be bloated. The current UI is simple :) Simple is better.

+1
Color scheme (theme) and transparency aren't skins.

Wouldnt be much of a bloat to the anti-virus.
The current ( 5/6 avast ) UI is not simple ( as compared to avast 4 ) . To me, the new interface reminds me of all those viruses that pretend to be an antivirus,and look exactly like how the new avast 5/6 UI looks like.
...It just looks like bloatware now...
( my opinion ) hehe ^^

I already asked for that and had a discussion about that (half agreed and half not [about changing look of avast])... May be ( not sure) that avast 7 will come with same orange scheme but a new look .....
