I can't find where to see the Virus Chest with AVAST 2014 9.0.2006.

avastUI - Statistics - Component Status - then click on the items stored in the Virus Chest text.

David,

Honestly I had to do a search and find this post to also find the virus chest.

This has to be the worst choice I have seen in a long time to place it where you said. I would NEVER think to look in that location.

Please pass along that the virus chest section should be where the scan section is. This was really a bad idea.

You can add a tile to it from the Home Page (right click a tile and select Virus Chest) and it's also in the lower corner in the Scan tab.

It is in the scan section too:  Main GUI \ Scan \  ...check bottom line: "Quaratine (Virus Chest)"

"Alikhan" gave a good response, explaining that you can customize the avast program's "status" panel.. where it says "add", you can add "viruschest"..

1) Scan screen showing; chest, scan history and create a custom scan.
2) Configure status tiles via right click.  :)

Avast Free is white. The Pro, Internet Security and Premier have black interfaces. Skins are not changeable.
