Windows Live Messnger (MSN 8) with Avast
« on: June 28, 2006, 07:54:25 PM »
Hello there,

I Installed MSN 8 just a few day's ago.
And now i wanted to send someone an exe file.

Now is MSN Complaining about no virus scanner.
I Know that Avast does this automaticly, atleast for downloaded files.
Also, MSN Tells me that i have to installe Windows Life Safety.
That is something i rather not do.

I Think the other option is to add some avast program to the MSN options.
But what program/exe file do i need to use. And is this compatible?

Thx for the help.

Assuming that you installed avast! in the default folder, this is the path needed to scan downloads, C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashQuick.exe
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 22.5.6015 (build 22.5.7263.730) UI 1.0.711/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

Normally the MSN / Windows Messenger is included in the Instant Messaging provider so I don't know why MSN isn't detecting avast, the Security Center does. I guess that MSN 8 it trying to push MS products ;D Windows Live Safety.
