Tweaking
« on: August 21, 2004, 02:13:35 AM »
I just upgraded to Pro 4.1, and I was wondering if there were any specific settings that I need to pay close attention to, or tweak? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

there's no official tweak program for it and I hope someone will prepare it... (and I hope it won't be in Java 8)).

Well in fact there is one :P Unofficial ofcourse,its named avast! External Control (AEC).

Homepage:
www.security-ops.tk

Download:
http://freeweb.siol.net/razor256/downloads/avast_external_control.zip

avast! External Control has many tweaks and features to perfectly disable/enable and auto-restart avast!,tweak lots of settings that cannot be changed by default avast! interface and also provide you with detailed status info and log dumping ability. If you use NT based system (Win2000/XP) this is the right toy for you (its somehow limited for Win9x users) :)
There is also Readme file with detailed info about every feature in AEC inside download package,but if you have any other questions about it feel free to mail me or ask in this thread:

Thanks

How about checking ALL settings to make sure they are as you wish?

Rejzor,

It might be helpful if you put up those OS which will not work with AEC.
It will prevent much unneccesary posting.   ;D

Ok?

Not on the splash screen,but you get error/warning/info box before using feature that isn't supported on Win9x. Try using avast! Main Control feature on Win9x and you'll get that dialog.
