It seems that you've changed the avast settings without knowing what you were doing...
This is an option disabled by default. You can turn it off going to the Standard Shield provider settings, Advanced tab an unchecking 'Show detailed information on action performed'. You can do this for the other providers too.

Hi,

Tech, he talk about the yellow message that appear at the bottom of the screen, not the message showed when the option you said is checked, but the default message in yellow box that appear by default. Like when you surf on the net and Avast detect a trojan on a web page, he show the window who detail the virus (and the button for the action), and display too a yellow box that say a scan message.

I would like disable it too.

The default message in yellow box that appear by default. The window who detail the virus (and the button for the action).
Only in Professional version (see picture here: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=13315.msg112285#msg112285).

In Home version you can only use Silent Mode:
Left click the 'a' blue icon.
It will start On-access protection
Click on Internet Mail and then on Customize.
Go to Advanced tab and select Silent Mode and the default answer No. This will send the file (email) to Chest.
Do the same for the and Outlook/Exchange plugin.
The answer Yes in Silent Mode keeps the virus in the file or into the message (attach) and continue the scanning. You can't configure 'delete the infected file' in the Home version.
You can do the same for Standard Shield provider, but it won't be a good idea...

Silent mode in the case of the WebShield provider simply means that avast will keep pressing the "Abort connection" button for hte user automatically.

Hope this helps...  :)
