Virus found --> Auto delete?
« on: January 13, 2004, 05:23:58 PM »
Hello,

I've just converted a Norton/McAfee user (a friend) to swap to Avast! :)
He has a question about default action when a virus is found, how to change the default action (Alerting) by the action of deleting the infected file (or move it to the chest) when running a complete scan (local disks)?

I found this option in the Avast4.ini:

AutoDelete=-1

Is it the option to play with?

Thanks for any help. :)

No, I believe it's the key controling the automatic deletion of sessions in the Enhanced User Interface.

The automatic actions can be set the Professional version of avast! - in the Enhanced User Interface, by editing the corresponding task (page "Virus").

Kaleus, igor is correct (this option is available only in Pro version).

The option AutoDelete into [UserInterface] section of avast4.ini file is for Automatically delete sessions after certain timeout (days).

More information about the avast4.ini file you can see here.
