Turn off Alarm sound?
« on: December 04, 2003, 04:41:22 PM »
This software is much better then Mcafee. I had lots of problems with them, now with Avast the problems are gone. The one question I have is, How do I turn off the alarm sound when a virus is detected? When receiving email it may go off 4-5 times. The warning does the job, but the sound is troublesome. Can any one help here?
Thanks in advance.

Start avast, then go to Settings, Sounds, and select 'Disable avast sounds'.

OR, if you just want to get rid of the siren when a virus is detected but wish to retain the other audible alerts (such as the 'new virus DB installed' notification), you can do this by clicking the button in that window, which opens the Sounds applet from the Control Panel. Then select the Sounds tab, scroll to 'avast antivirus' and change whatever you like...

Hope this helps,

  I had clearly over looked that setting. Your quick response was very helpful. This is certainly why I chose Avast. Thanks again.
