Hi Gremlin,

Try this..

Right Click the 'a' icon

Choose 'On access Protection control'

Dbl click on the 'internet mail' box (icon)

choose 'advanced' and de-select @show detailed info'


Is that what you meant?.. if not give a little more detail pls.

Walker.

Do the same for the other providers which has this option too, for example, the Standard Shield > Advanced

Thanks for your interest - as for the messages that pop up, the heading of the pop up box is "Avast! On Access Scanner Message", then underneath the heading comes something like this:

Scanning c:/programFiles/realone.exe

Plus it will display a host of other messages pertaining to the opening of RealOne player. There could be as many as 15...20...messages for this program. It will display things like "scanning *.dll etc...etc...

It goes through this routine every time i open IE or any program or document. I hope this helps....

Thanks.

That sure as heck sounds like the "report in detail" option for the Standard Shield provider to me.  I played with turning that on for all of about 5 minutes, then quickly unticked it again when I found I was typically getting a couple of dozen report messages for any kind of computer activity.

It's an education, though -- most end users, like me, probably don't have a clue how many DLL's almost any program requires.

I suggest:

1) again, disable 'Detail report action' in Standard Shield > Advanced and other providers.
2) disable the 'ok' and 'soft errors' files in the Report page

But, what version of avast! are you using... I have troubles with old ones and RealOne... Click the icon and 'About' to see the programa and the VPS version...  ;)

Thank you - My annoying pop up messages i described have stopped.  The 'detailed report action' in Standard Shield was still enabled. Simply un ticking this gave me the result i was looking for. Thanks for your persistance!  ;)

This thread is 3 years old, but it helped me today!

I do not understand why there is nothing in the Home Avast Help about "On-Access Scanner Message". I started at 8:10, to try to get rid of those messages at the bottom of the screen, who eat about a third of he screen, not letting you work properly! It is now 9:32... YES...! ONE HOUR and 20 MINUTES, to find the answer to this simple annoyance. I do not think I would have found it so easily if it was not for Google's "Search Site" Service, who found this thread in the forum... I would have been looking for hours, YES, SURELY FOR HOURS AND HOURS before finding it among the hundreds of thousands messages threads in this forum!!!!!!!!

Thus, I SUGGEST:
- Mention something in the OFFLINE HELP, about this.
- Have an INDEX of all the topics in the forum, with search facility AND listing!!!

Anyway, I do not forget to THANK YOU! I just installed AVAST a few days ago. It found viruses that nor AVG, nor COMODO had found, it is quiet and discrete, it pauses immediately when you ask it to (not like AVG who ignores the cancel command!!!), It is not memory consuming... well, I like it!

Did you try the Forums Search function (which I would hope would return more recent hits) available on every page of the forums ?

This function is off by default, so before tweaking avast you could read the avast help file (available off-line Help).

Glad that you have resolved the issue, welcome to the forums.

 :)  Hi David :

      I had never clicked "Advanced Search" prior to your post
      and the screen shot; I will use it a lot in the future rather
      than "regular" Search, for more specific items I might
      want to find . I always wondered why an Author "box"
      was not available, like it is so easily shown on other
       forums "regular" search function .

So czjarl's post was helpful to you and hopefully others. The Advanced search is very powerful and you can get more meaningful results. I rarely use the other search function now.

I installed avast! 4 a few days ago, and that On-Access Scanner Message has driven me crazy.  I found nothing in the off-line help or by searching to any variation of those four words on avast.com knowledgebase.  I did finally do a google search, and this was the first message that popped up.

My computer is now scanner-message free!  It would be nice if someone at avast covered it in their own help menus and knowledgebase site.  I'm glad I found this forum, because I was getting

Thanks for the info . . . even this many years later!

Well the best option would have been not to enable this 'Show detailed info on performed actions' that I believe you are talking about.

- Standard Shield > Customize > Advanced - 'Show detailed info on performed actions' this option is off by default, so it would appear you have been tweaking avast without knowing the effect it will have. This function is also on the Web Shield and Internet Mail providers so you should also check those.

There is something in the off-line help, but I guess you need to know what you are searching for to find it.

Yes, I probably did change the default, as I like to see what my computer's doing before I turn off options.  My problem was getting back to where I had made the change, and the simple answer to me was search in the Help screen(s) for the words at the top of each message.  So what should I have been looking for in the off-line help?  And how would I have known to look for that?

I would have looked in the Resident Protection - the different scanners and see what the settings do and see if there is a setting that matches the action I'm seeing, on the screen.

Notice I'm not searching for a specific term as I really don't know if that is what it might be called, I'm just looking at what settings are available and what the effect might be.

The problem being I have almost 5 years of using avast and you don't and that is the problem I now know what something is so I could easily use the search function in the help file. But if you can't do that the only option left is to check out the various different settings available in the resident protection that could have that effect.
