Stop animated taskbar icon
« on: May 07, 2005, 08:33:08 AM »
I like Avast but is there any way to stop the icon from animating? It distracts me :s

Download avast! External Control (AEC) from www.excessive-software.tk
Run it,select avast! Tweaker.
Here you can control several tweaks including "a" ball spinning (animation).

It just disables "a" ball rotation. Protection is not changed in any way.
Tool (AEC) is created by me and used by many users here so it's perfectly safe (as all other programs listed on eXcessive Software page (which is also mine)).

Can you change the look of the icon as well?
