Real Time Msg's
« on: December 06, 2003, 06:12:33 PM »
I am just getting back to using Avast... Had problems with W2K and was not able to spend the time to debug. Now I have the time, if it fails again.

But, that is not my question. The previous install use to display what was being scan real time in a line just above the systray. This version does not do that or I don't have something config'd correctly. Anyone remeber this?

Don't have to remember - I am an avast! newbie, but it is right there.

I am assuming you mean when you scan emails?

If so, right-click your blue-ball icon in the notification area (aka systray), then select "On-Access Protection Control".

Select "Internet Mail" and then the "Advanced Tab".

Check the "Show detailed info on performed action" box.

And there you go. (I am referring to avast! 4 Home Edition.)

And if you would like to see how to find this and other good stuff out without scratching around the web, look in the Help file (Click Start > All Programs > avast! Antivirus > Help - would you believe?  :P)

On the Content list expand the following branch and select the last on it:

Resident Protection > Internet Mail Provider Settings > "Advanced" Page

Hope this helps!  :)
