Avast amber and blue "globe" in taskbar
« on: October 17, 2015, 07:40:01 PM »
Occasionally, it will change from amber to blue...then stay amber, then, occasionally, it will rotate from color-to-color.

Can you tell me please what is occurring while this is going on, please?

Many thanks for taking the time to respond!

The use of Blue is to simulate the rotation effect of the tray icon, to indicate it is scanning.
