Date of last scan
« on: October 08, 2003, 08:20:06 PM »
Technical... forgive me if this has been covered elsewhere  ;) , I couldn't find a direct reference to it  :)

Is it normal for the 'Date of last Scan' in the simple interface, to report 'not yet done', when I have... several times ?

Were they full scans of your local hard disks (at least I think that's what the item means in fact)?

Hi Igor,

Yes full 'thorough' + 'archive' of four hard drive partitions.

For info... this isn't new on the latest version. It's not been reporting the date of the scans for at least a couple of previous versions.

Is it just me?

Sorry for answering... In these case, post me an IM, ok?  ;)
It´s a strange behavior but igor said the truth: the last full scan date is displayed... See mine  ;)

Why does Avast! persist with this stupid sentence 'Date of last Scan'?  Is it so hard to change that text to 'Date of last FULL scan'? >:(

Personally, I think that it should reflect the scan status of drives that have or have not been scanned in, say, the last week or so (maybe make it adjustable)  8)
I'm here in spirit, not in body.

Technical, your always welcome to answer my messages... your always informative  ;)

I'm sure Igor is a real truthfull guy. I am also sure that your scan date is reported (I believe you without a picture  :) )

This doesn't mean that it is working for me. Mine still reports 'Not yet done'

Maybe if you have tried to make an skin sometime you will know how just a word will bring a lot of 'space trouble'  ;)
Ok, I had never made a skin for avast! but I translated all the software and I know that just a word, a simple word, makes a lot of diference.
Anyway, this won´t be an excuse for the Walker trouble  ;)
I´ll do a new "full" scan and see what I get... Meantime, Walker, wait a little for the avast! team. The majority of them are not at the office today...

A data is just a date... You don´t get a virus!  ;D

Hey avast! team, where are everybody...
Is this information (date and time of last scan) stored in Registry, ini file or at the Report file generated  :o ... ?

Again, my system is ok (the screen for last scan shows the real date and time...)  :'(

Are you saying that:

1. selecting the HDD icon
2. starting the scan
3. letting the scan to complete

does not update the Date of Last Scan?

Hi Vlk,

Yep exactly.

Avast runs through all four Hard Drive partitions (thorough+archive), Reports 'Scan completed'. But the SI always says Scan "Not yet done"... weird eh!?

Does the scan find at least one virus? Or does it complete without any results?

Hmm, please check if you have a TimeOfLastScan= value in the [Simple] section of <avastdir>\avast4.ini . Is it there? If so, what number does it equal to ?

Thanks
