Fails to complete.
« on: January 30, 2005, 09:20:35 PM »
Avast! fails to complete.  After selecting fixed drives option and starting the scan, I return to find a screen display of the instruction sheet.  I close this.  The main screen appears.  If I check the logfile, there is no entry for this date.  The entry for the previous date is 'stopped'.  Could my screen saver be aborting the program run?  Or could it be that when I "touch any key" to restore my screen, this aborts the protram?

Welcome to the Forum
I think in this case, you prevented avast! from completing it's task by interupting the scan.
If you select to run a scan while the screen saver is active, then it will stop it's scan when
you move your mouse or hit a key.
