Title: Avast keeps popping up!!
Post by: bandman122857 on May 03, 2004, 06:21:00 PM
All of the sudden when I click on certain programs my Avast pops up with scanning information.  How did I start this and how can I stop it?  Thank you.

bandman,

Which programs are activating the Avast scan?

What is your OS?
What version of Avast do you have: Home or Pro?

When did the problem start?  How long prior did you install Avast?

A simple Repair may do the trick but I need more info.

 :)  Thank you so much.  The repair seemed to fix it.  I am running Windows XP on an HP system.   I downloaded and installed Avast about a week ago and the popup thing just started yesterday.  I went through and did some major cleaning also yesterday.  I may have deleted something that I shouldn't have.  
The popups are interesting in that they are very fast and irregular in shape and size.  I found that they happen when any program is accessed.  Thank you for your help.

Hi,

uncheck the "show detailed info" entry in your Resident task settings (doubleclick blue RS-ball and -> customize/settings)

javascript:replaceText(' ::)')     I was wrong the first time.....it was not fixed by doing a repair.  However, thank you Whocares.   Your advise was the most simple and it did correct the problem.  Thanks for "caring".
