Stopping Scanner
« on: January 12, 2005, 12:46:51 PM »
Hi (again!)
One more question that arose from my incident installing Nero if you don't mind.
To turn off the scanner, i right clicked on the avast system tray icon and selected 'Stop Resident Scanner' (or something similar) which stopped all the services - fine, except when you right click again expecting it to say 'Start Resident Scanner', it doesn't - it still says Stop R..S.. and means opening the UI and enabling it there.  Is it possible to add this as an improvement - if you can stop it, then why can't you start it with the same process?  Or am I missing something?
Regards
Martin

I think it's a little glitch, rather than call it a bug. Alwil staff ? Can you comment on this one please ? Yes, it's not a big issue, everybody can just simply left click the avast! icon in system tray, open On-Access Scanner Window and start all those providers, but still I don't think this option should say STOP ON-ACCESS PROTECTION when it's already stopped. See attachment... It should say START ON-ACCESS PROTECTION once when it's already stopped. I don't think it should be huge problem just to change something inside the code and change that.

Left click on the avast icon so that the Resident Scanner window is displayed, select the Standard Shield and click the Start button, I thing that starting one will restart them all, see if that works for you.

Yes DavidR, that works for everybody, but we just wanted to point Alwil's direction that STOP ON-ACCESS PROTECTION writting is there even when on-access scanner is stopped. See avast! icon in my system tray (screenshot). Resident protection is stopped, then when I right click avast! icon again in order to see the menu, but in menu it still says STOP ON-ACCESS PROTECTION. It should say START O.A.P. once when it's already stopped.

Cheers !

Hi
Yes, that's all i was pointing out - I managed to turn it back on OK (using your method) but thought it worth mentioning that right-click would still show stop, and does nothing - can it show start, and then start when selected?
Regards

Very reasonable request, and avast! menu would really look much better in general.
