Tray icon complaint
« on: June 30, 2017, 06:24:37 PM »
Hello,

since the latest update I'm getting numbers (I guess notifications) in the Avast's tray icon, I would really like to disable that. How do I go about it?



Also, not a fan of the new way the resoults of a Windows Explorer right-click scan are showed (in a slow big window).

Other than that, keep up the good work and thank you! :)

See this topic, post of mine, https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=204588.msg1403876#msg1403876. From there on there is some discussion about this and some flaws in this new functions use.

Thank you, David. But what I'm looking for is a fix to get rid of this? If possible...

There is no fix as it is not broken.

You're welcome.

I think that we are all looking for a solution as the current option/function is a mess and just doesn't work. Too many counter intuitive actions in this Notifications modification and things that when checked have an adverse action when compared to the old Status Monitoring.

Those posts are basically saying to avast get it sorted as it is a mess.
