Avast missing from right-click menu
« on: January 08, 2019, 12:16:48 AM »
Hello! I used to be able to right-click on a file name and select Avast scan from the popup menu, but it's not there anymore. Is this something I can easily fix? Thanks!

P.S. Y'all have the most difficult to read captcha images I've ever seen...   :P
