Hello!

On Feb 18 Avast caught my TB (see in board 24.0: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=225467.msg1495558#msg1495558) and until now nobody anwered my questions.
So I hope to get some here.
If anybody needs translation concerning my questions, let me know, please.
Thx.

Ok, here comes the translation with my questions:

'Hello!

This 'accident' happened yesterday (Feb 18) and since then, I don't know, how I can manage getting back TB out of the chest. I sent it to Avast and a small notice told me, that it will be sent with the next update! Not mentioned which kind of update they meant!
Will I get a feedback after having scanned TB again by Avast (when) with a notice, how I can get back TB out of the chest and ready for use again?
Have I to reinstall TB together with the mass of mail addresses, which are lost?
What happened to all the mail addresses, which are (where exactly?) are at Avast (in the meantime in the USA?) or not?'

Since now, I got no answer of all these questions and didn't make things better for I can't use TB.
BTW: There's another prob, using all my power: after almost 40 years my 'blood cancer' is back!

Edit: typo.

To restore them follow these steps:
Open Avast Virus Chest by right-clicking on the Avast icon in the Windows system tray and selecting 'Virus Chest'
Select the files you want to recover, right-click and select 'Restore and add to exclusions' so Avast will ignore them in the future.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Point 1: Everything done, but saw no change (TB isn't back on desktop!).
Point 2: Well, I didn't know all that.

Thx & groetjes.

Point 1: I copied a new TB icon on desktop and after that: It works!
