Log viewer
« on: December 14, 2006, 05:34:58 PM »
Recently i was looking at my log viewer and realized that the last entry was from the 3rd of the 11th. I'm a bit worried that there's something wrong. especially because it says the last update was on the 3rd, but i've seen it update many times after that. Can anyone explain whats going on?

Well I won't be surprised that the log is empty... My 'emergency' folder is empty too...

Wow... you're avast installation is not good... What's happening?
Can you try to repair your installation?
Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove programs > avast! antivirus > Remove. Then choose Repair function in the popup window (Repair). You must be connected to the internet while repairing.
If this does not help, can you uninstall / boot / install / boot again?

it's not only the emergency one that doesn't have any recent records they all don't. repairing it hasn't worked. I'm going to try your second idea later, I'll get back to you on the result.

None of them should have anything in them if you have it set opposite Emergency it only logs Emergency occurrences or higher and since there is no higher level nothing else is logged.

I think the default level for logging is the slider is opposite to Notice, see image, so any event occurrence equal to or Higher than Notice will be logged. This should log the update notifications.

Ok Tech i've got some more info for you before i try uninstalling it. If i right click on the avast a icon and go to program settings all the settings are there. But if i check from the log viewer only the language and logging settings are there. I don't know if it's supposed to be like that or not. sorry for wasting your time if it is.

Ps thanks for the info DavidR i've put it to notice.

It's not a waste of time... we're learning as you.
From Log Viewer, only its settings could be viewed.

Yes I had never noticed this before, but it is logical that it only displays the settings relevant to the Logging function and less clutter to confuse. After all it just says Settings unlike the avast icon which says, Program Settings.
