    Bet it's easy to figure out a gui when you just steal windows defender gui and make it a bit more fancy. At least they found a way to move from that terrible cluttered gui they used to have to a decent cluttered gui they now have.

    From the linked article:
    "Configuration & Scanner will still show up in its current style."

    lol, the Luke Filewalker scan screen lives on, basically unchanged for the last 10, 15 years, if not more.

    Data mining is not something that's only restricted to the free versions. If that was someone's thought all along, it's pretty wrong. They do these to improve the experience of their product.

    Is there a way to change the interface back? New one is so laggy that i can't do anything. Not to mention it's ugly like the most of "modern" UI which doesn't add anything except more resource usage. If not then i need to change my antivirus... again.

    The new GUI is more beautiful but probably makes the AV more slower. They should have fixed their antivirus protection first, added a BB, ditched Avira Connect bloatware, then fix the GUI; but that's one more way to define ""priorities"".

    Just switched on my PC and found the new interface installed. (I hate it).

    But I have a question:
    Only one out of my five computers is updated to the new version (15.0.31)
    All other four are still using the old one.
    I even run an Update check manually and although they are showing 15.0.30 it says they are updated.
    Do you have any idea why this happening?

    This is normal as the rollout of the new version is performed in several stages, it will be available for all installations soon.

    How long is the delay after clicking onto the Avira Connect icon till the content is loaded?
    The protection of Avira Antivirus is provided by a combination of artificial intelligence and cloud technologies. Behaviour Blocking is one of the methods and we are further improving our protection against Ransomware.

    Thank you for replying. As I mentioned, I would like to see Avira improving its dynamic detection but, anyway, this is up for debate. What I don't agree with is this Avira Connect thing. Totally unnecessary bloat, in my opinion.
