Hi,

i NEWs does not start with the splash screen.
iNews are displayed in the splash for limited time only - the default value is 7 days (it can be modified via the avast.ini). If you wish to read all iNews, please use the menu item iNews  ;)

To read more about this please see: http://www.avast.com/forum/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=1252;start=msg6894#msg6894

Hope this helps
Pavel

Thanx for your fast reply Pavel  ;D ;D ;D
I uninstalled the program and reinstalled it again..
Should start showing the iNEWS again (the days counter starts from the beginning or some thing like that  ???)?

No, each iNews item carries the date of issue with itself and only "fresh" iNews is displayed even after new installation...

If you change the iNews_Days item in [Splash] section to 365, you will see the latest iNews for the whole year  :D :D
