    It looks...ugly. That green status bar kinda reminds McAfee which makes me to throw up. If I ever need some bloat on my PC, I'll gladly install this. :)

    I also thought of McAfee when I first saw the new UI. But I don't mind it too much, it looks better than
    the old one. imho

    Well, better than the old gui.But with Avira, my biggest concern is the bloat that comes with the product:unsure:

    Please get rid of the Avira Center interface. A single interface with all the modules is what users want. Most of us are staying away from Avira because of the aforementioned bloatwared interface.

    I'm pretty sure he means the opposite, less bloatware (modules).

    Why so hurry to release new UI when it's unfinished? It's almost like Alpha release. Some settings cannot even be found, and the "old style" notifications? :cautious:

    Not even talking about new modules/features what I would like to see in Avira products, because that's just user feedback and whatever is suggested, like Behaviour Blocker, will take another few years for Avira to implement. Some developers listen to user suggestions how to improve the security products, some just grow user base by attracting them with Driver Updaters/Tuneup Utilities :D

    @MWTHelper Thank you for replying(y)
    For me a good behavioral blocker is necessary in your product to deal with malwares,and especially against ransomwares.Avira has great signatures. Zero-day protection on the other side is weak. Added to that, i would add something like a 'Folder Shield' to prevent malwares to access sensitive data.
    Please work on performance a bit to make the product smooth and fast.

    @RoboMan Has some very good suggestions.(y)

    Also it would be nice to see the guys of Avira more active and present on the forum,and giving infos and answering questions:)
    Thank you @MWTHelper

    Good to see a new interface, that old one was horrid.

    However I won't be going to Avira again after they hosed me BIG on licenses as per this thread;

    Avira licensing changes.

    They lost a customer from that nonsense..

    Well, you can choose , which version to download and the setup asks as well, you can skip all.

    Umm, the new GUI seems to be just to appease basic users, because if you go to advanced settings, the ugly one is still there. :p

    That is exactly, what it looks like to me, designed for mobile phones, but not for Windows 10. GUI is like somewhere between Vista and 7.

    Re-EDIT: The scan froze, I guess my Windows does not like the new GUI either. The scan has finished, but it is still frozen. :(

    Can someone post a screenshot of the detection popup? or is it still the same one from the old interface? which seems to be a mashup of old/new

    If your going to do a new UI please completely get rid of the old one.

    Well, i think Avira will bring continous updates to UI, for example in latest beta build: 15.0.32.6, they have added the license manager back into the product, and it will be accessible through the help (?) icon on the top right and updated icons in several places. The good thing is that they are polishing new UI. The thing I am saying is they released it too early. :rolleyes:
