UI still fails to load, sometimes, after my PC boots up.
Tried every solution possible but no permanent fix.
If this new Avast version doesn't magically make the problem go away, I'm switching to Kaspersky.

There is not any official or unofficial fix yet. Avast team doesn't seem to care in my opinion other than some temporary fixes about enabling a service in windows services to load the Avast UI.
This problem appeared if i remember well 2 or 3 versions ago. Other than that boot time of Windows increases dramatically to the point that you have to wait 3-5min for the desktop to appear. I think this happens on windows 7 and XP users more than windows10 users.
It's a shame for a company like avast not to deal with these problems effectively so far.
I used to like avast but not anymore....

My opinion is to use Kaspersky free if you like Kaspersky, it's a very stable and very well functioning program.
