Lukas, I agree and understand.
What we ask is a tab with all 'advanced' options and a reset buttom to the default ones.
Can anybody from Alwil or an avast user teach me how to programm and external application (GUI) for reading/writting the avast4.ini file?

I've already pondered about writting this kind of "advanced configuration" app for these kind of settings - but I don't think Vlk would like to integrate such an huge advanced settings tab into the main avast's gui - and translating it into all languages whenever some ini setting is changed.

Well, why not an standalone application like RejZor's one?

And translating it into all languages whenever some ini setting is changed.

Here the problem is Igor  ;D
The standalone application could be only in English.

 ;D Where can I subscribe ?  ;D

An easy option could be simply implemented, if needed (advanced users don't in my opinion) : if the standalone app is named "advavast.exe", it could search a file "advavast.lang", with a line for each expression/menu title/label text/option description (like the skype lang file  8)). If "advavast.lang" exists and is good formed (necessary txt file, possibly good number of lines and no empty lines) advavast use it, otherwise it will be in english...

We're failing miserabily to join forces and make this application (GUI)  :P

Can anybody post if could give me a piece of code that allows:

1. Discover the path for avast4.ini fiel
2. Read/Write default values of avast4.ini file
3. Read/Write new the values there
4. Space for informations (help)

I've spent all day changing and updating the thread for 4.6 version.
But, isn't there anybody that could help me with a piece of code for making a tool (GUI)?

Hi, Tech  :)
Please, don't surrender your weapons! I'm sure that many and many users (like me) have downloaded your lists and your comments. Your difficult is to find someone who can work with you to realize the GUI project... but I'm sure that the time works for you (translated by an italian expression: I don't know the similar concept in english).

Thanks for your labor.

Ok, you won't find it and a lot of others  ;D
Like I've posted in the #1 post of this thread: if you need one configuration you can add it.
Take care of some of them that might not apply to your system  :-[

[MailScanner]
MaxConnections   20

Can someone explain to me what is this for exactly? And if this is available for Web Shield...
I assume this means how manny simultaneous connections can this module create(use). I'm looking for new tweaks for AEC and this one draw my attention more than others...

The default concurrent connection limit is 20 (for mail & news together). If the limit was exceeded, you would see the line Closing connection due to MaxConnections into aswMaiSv.log file. This limit exists not to save resources, but to prevent connection looping in strange configurations, so the user can increase it without worry to, for instance, 50. The value 0 disables the limit.
I think you've understood it...: how many simultaneous connections can this module create(use).

For WebShield, ... hum..., maybe, seems possible, Lukas is the best one to say something.

For example if you're using a Network Tweak for Firefox that can boost over 100 simulataneous connections for extreme page loading speed,but Web Shield might be blocking it  from using full potential... If i understand correctly ???
