    yeah, I've been able to clear the update issue by running an updating using the tray icon (I only notice it if I open the console, so it doesn't really bother me)

    the closed umbrella, however, is a longstanding bug that has annoyed me for a long time; that one seems to also be cosmetic in nature because the product still functions normally despite the signaling by the tray application. that being said, i'd love for it to be fixed as well. you can "fix" it by toggling realtime protection off/on, but it would be nice to not to have to do that, ofc.

    When you point your mouse over the closed umbrella, it says 'initializing"o_O

    With Windows 10 version 1809, the umbrella initializes for a long time (4 minutes rather than 1 minute) and then disappears...
    It is even worse than I thought: I can't access the GUI and check logs in any way. Uninstalled for the time being until it is fixed...

    Was always like that , regardless of the version of Windows (I am on Win7)

    They said is "normal" to initialize for minutes...

    Removed and installed something else.

    I don't understand why you keep trolling about Avira. You arbitrarily edited my post to serve your narrative... This is not about 'initializing', it is about Windows 10 VERSION 1809, whereby I can't access the GUI and see if the program works properly... You are a troll and stay with your 'something else' program...

    Hello Osaban,

    So what happened with your advice :

    "Look man, if you criticize the time of initializing, it is fine with me, complain to Avira support and that's that."

    https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/avira.345492/page-212#post-2779180

    Or this doesn't apply to you, only to commoners ?

    My Avira also went from max 10 seconds initializing to almost 2 minutes now all of a sudden.

    I never had this before.

    Are the devs aware of this problem?

    Thanks.

    I appreciate that, tbh - rushing releases in spite of bugs makes me sad
