Can the Icon be Changed When Avast is Updating?
« on: November 14, 2012, 01:56:53 AM »
The orange icon is nice and spins when scanning. But, could it be changed when an update is happening? I have a slower laptop and perhaps if it had a black "U" on it while updating, that would be nice to see because the machine slows down. Changing the "a" to a black capital "U" during the update process would be perfect! Thx.

@ cska133 -

He/she is not saying the icon changes when updating. He/she is asking if to make it change is possible.


@ Aventador -

Get off your high horse. Not everyone is as rich as you are.
If you can not give possitive feedback, don't bother at all.
This not a joke forum. If you want to play, go elsewhere.

I'd like to see that as well. When my laptop starts or comes out of standby, there is a lot of internet activity and I'd feel better if I knew right away it's due to the avast updating and not something else.

I think animation in the tray icon will be great and simple and usefull feature for Avast.
What do the mods and devs think about this ?
