Avast logging system
« on: February 01, 2004, 10:36:48 PM »
After a mention in another post I have a "strange-feeling" the way Avast logs events.

In the settings off the logging system you are able to define what Avast should log,... => Errors, Info, Critical,... ect,....

So the way i see it: If you set the arrow on "errors" avast only log Errors,...and no info, virusattacks,...  :(
So it logs stuff,...but just one thing,....

Personally I think it would be much better just to work with the same method we can find back in the " On-Access-control-thing"
=> Normal - High - Customize

Normal: only the most common used: Virus attacks, critic errors,...
High: Virus attacks, critic errors, Info,...
Customize: using some sort of "listbox" where you can choose what avast should log and what not,....

I base my theorie on something I just had: I got a warning from an email with "iframe"-stuff or something like that,...Avast called it dangerous,... but the log file showed completely empty,....

So i think the log system is something that should be more "enhanced"

Another thing i have noticed is that there is no scrollbar so one icon is not visible,....=> see screenshot.

hope i can make my point :)

I am using Avast-Home edition - latest version availabe
