Title: Possible to turn off the scan-popup?
Post by: electronikus on April 27, 2004, 07:34:09 PM
Maybe a simple question: I do not want the popup to show when avast! scans an email. (the one going all over the screen above the taskbar)

I found something under ON-ACCESS-Options.

The help of this function says: "During scan, detailed information will be shown in the bottom right corner of the screen".

If I disable that, it's still there.

I'm using Thunderbird as my email client.

Or is it just included in the pro-version?

Find the Mail Protection Wizard in your Windows start menu, there you find the option you are looking for.

Thanks

Do the same (disabling that option) in the Internet Mail provider and Outlook/Exchange plugin...

Thanks a lot. So Thunderbird or any no-Outlook-client is considered as Internet Mail/others and needs that option to be turned off I guess - you should change that maybe to make clear for non-Outlooks.

One more question: Only the Pro version of Avast! is able to delete email- or any other virus silently, correct?

The free version (Home) can only 'send the file to Chest' not delete it.
To do so: check 'Silent mode' with answer 'No'.
Otherwise, the Pro version is very cool on automatic features. You won't regret buying it  ;)

One more question (last, I promise...):

Is it not possible to replace the virfound.gif with an own gif? I made this new one (see attachement) but after a while it gets replaced with an the original again.
