Avast! 4.7 not scanning Avast! site
« on: April 24, 2006, 10:07:22 AM »
Hello! I've noticed that the Web Shield in Avast! 4.7 is not scanning the url http://www.avast.com and some other pages, like the VPS history or the 4.x release history.
I tried visiting lots of sites from my favourites folder to see if other websites will be scanned and all of those were being scanned from the web shield.
I tried accessing the avast main page from my fav folder, writing the URL in the URL bar and doing a google search. but the page will not be scanned. is it normal?
Avast! is scanning other pages inside the site, and this forum too.
It happens with random page of the site too. Like the download program, for example. The ball in the icon tray is not spinning, and if I check the last page scanned, i see the page of the site I visited before going to the Avast! site.
Thanks.

My guess is that the pages (that are not scanned) are in your browser's cache - so they are actually not downloaded, but taken from your disk instead.

thanks! I tried deleting the cache and Avast! scanned the Avast main site again. i wonder why it happened just with the Avast! site, and not with other cache pages too.
Thanks for the replay.
