Is this a glitch or Skinless interface cannot be launched via ashSimpl.exe ?
Even if i check or uncheck the setting,it won't change. If i run through Start avast! Antivirus command on "a" ball it changes to skinless mode.

The same here  :'(

I'm also wondering why you don't add options to disable "a" ball spinning, VRDB database generation intervals rate changing,ability to adjust how many lines to show for "Show detailed info on performed action", also option to disable update popup/error popup (and leave only sounds that virus database has been updated). I belive this shouldn't take too much time and resources to impliment. I know its available via my tweaker and Technicals descriptions, but many users want to see this in program itself.
Think about it ;)

I follow this... Maybe the paradise will be all the options into an Advanced tab of settings. Oh, at that time, my thread will be useless  :'(

If I click on the "a" ball and then Start avast Antivirus I dont get skinlees mode  ???  I get the skin I was using before I did the update.. hmm

Me too...

There is a ashSimpll2.exe in the folder now..   i get skinless if i click on that

You discovered the solution  8)

It MUST be servers.def and NOT servers.def.txt.
Change the extension.

Painless install.

I especially like the skin-free interface and the "simplified" mail scanner.

Would like to see some more technical explanation about the "Network Shield".

So many people are thrilled with "skinless" feature... that's strange... if Alwil made skinless antivirus program in the first place, I'm 100% sure, everybody would complain because there is no GUI, or GUI is too simple, or avast! is too ugly... now, when they have so many skins to choose between, no one is happy with skins...   ???  :'(  :'(

It looks like all those hours designing skins were just one huge waste of time...  right ? :-\

I updated avast! to 4.5 without any single problem. It works wonderful so far... if I find something I'll report as many other happy users...

Cheers !

Yeah,its hard to belive its beta. Works so good :)
Btw i'm still using skins :) And i like the new Silver skin too.
Similar to Blue Panel,but different.

Btw there was one positive comment about skinless GUI on Wilders Forums. Thats a good start :)

Sasha, the skinless interface certainly isn't meant as "dispraise" of your skins!
The fact is that some people really need it (e.g. blind or otherwise disabled people who need to control the program with the keyboard through special programs that require standard windows interface).
I.e. it's not supposed to be used very often... but it's nice to have the option.

I didn't mean MY SKINS... I thought of skins in general... Martin made huge number of skins, RejZor made one... also, Darren...

It's not about me... and it's not about Alwil made this skinless feature just to "dispraise" someone's skins... it's about all those users who are never satisfied. If you leave them with skinless antivirus for few months without an option to choose between skins, I'm sure they will complain that avast! is too boring... I know that. If you give them 4 good skins, they will ask for more... always... If you make 16 different, all kind of  skins, they will say, avast! is not serious security program... it's child play... too many colorful skins, it's like circus. I know what I'm talking about, just take a look at all those comments on other forums... for example, Wilders. Vlk had to explain to one guy that he can not jujdge antivirus program by it's design... that guy said that avast! is not serious program just because he hates avast! spinning icon in system tray... I wouldn't even listen those comments...

Cheers !

Worth the wait.  :)

XP SP2 - Installation a breeze.  Tested email at http://www.gfi.com/emailsecuritytest/
and as RejZoR said caught everything - VERY IMPRESSED.

Thanks guys.

BTW - I like the spinning icon despite what others say.
