I don't think that the spinning speed has anything to do with scanning speed or size of the scanned file.
The icon spins when there's anything being scanned - but the spinning speed is constant all the time (I believe it's ruled by a counter - if there's any scan in progress, the icon is rotated by one "piece" every 0.2 second, for example (I just made this number up, don't know what's the exact value).

But yes, if the system is too loaded with the scan itself, it might not be able to redraw the icon quickly enough, so it looks like it doesn't turn smoothly.

This should be rather simple, but for the future you should create a 'new topic' for something unrelated to the Topic Title.

It doesn't matter if you have forgotten the email used, just enter the one you are using as your default one now.

There wasn't any password required as far as I'm aware on the four and a half years I have been using the home version.

Complete the avast! 4 Home Registration form and you will receive an email from register @ avast.com (without the spaces) with your registration key.

We will need more information to be able to help you:
- Which OS are you using? Is it up to date?
- Do you use a firewall? Which one?
- Do you have any other antivirus installed in your system?  Did you have in the past?
- Any other security programs that could interfere?

Hi, not sure what OS is??? i have not put a fire wall on but i think there is one on there but as i can't get on the PC i can not tell you what it is. when i was loading AVAST i had Kaspersky on there but it had run out so i has to delete that which i did with difficulty. Other than that there will only be the general Windows security.

Operational System (Windows XP, Vista, ???)

Two antivirus at the same time in the same computer will conflict.

<snip> i had Kaspersky on there but it had run out so i has to delete that which i did with difficulty.

If you didn't use the Windows Add Remove Programs to uninstall (not delete) then there are likely to be remnants of Kaspersky.

First try the windows add remove programs and see if there is an entry for Kaspersky and uninstall using that.

Second: Run this utility to remove all traces of Kaspersky from the registry:

ICE is a US distributor for Kaspersky.

Boot in Safe Mode and try to remove one of the antivirus... they're conflicting.

Hello, Bob.  Are you aware of the fact that you replied to more than a month-old post?  This may be timing but every time I comes to the boards, I find you are acting bit strangely recently.  ;D

What's strange is that I just got notified of a new post. Maybe someone should look at the settings in the forum notification system. ???

Oh, I see.  There was a spam bombardment while back, which immediately cleaned by a moderator, if I am not mistaken, it was Luxor.
