Why Avas stop scaning when it found a virus?
« on: August 16, 2006, 07:34:39 PM »
 :oHello every one,
When I start a HDD scan, and if Avast found a virus The scanning is stoping and a popup appears whith some asking "quarantaine" continue etc.
Is it possible to have only this popup at the end's scanning?
Why is it not the virus automaticly put in quarantaine and asked when all is finish what I like to do?
At this moment I can't let my PC alone when avast is scaning because it stop when is founding somethig wrong a virus for example, it is not a joke when méticulous scanning for example (it's very long)
What can I do to change this situation, i did'nt fund any answers on search and FAQ's ???
Thank you for help. ;)
best regards

You can say that this is a limitation of avast! Home; in avast! Professional, you can specify what action to take when a virus is found (where action may also be "nothing", meaning you can process the results when the scan is finished).

No, only in Professional version (see picture here: http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=13315.msg112285#msg112285).

In Home version you can check the option "Don't show this window again" as soon as the first virus warning appears, and click on "No action" button. This way, nothing will be done and you will be presented the results at the end (and you can perform actions from there).

Or you can use Silent Mode:
Left click the 'a' blue icon.
It will start On-access protection

Click on Internet Mail and then on Customize.
Go to Advanced tab and select Silent Mode and the default answer No. This will send the file (email) to Chest.

Do the same for the and Outlook/Exchange plugin.
The answer Yes in Silent Mode keeps the virus in the file or into the message (attach) and continue the scanning. You can't configure 'delete the infected file' in the Home version.

You can do the same for Standard Shield provider, but it won't be a good idea...

Silent mode in the case of the WebShield provider simply means that avast will keep pressing the "Abort connection" button for hte user automatically.
The best things in life are free.
