Change VRDB update frequency
« on: May 10, 2003, 02:47:32 PM »
According to the help file

VRDB PRINCIPLE

avast! creates an integrity database, i.e. it stores information about the actual state of the files, doing it three version back of each file. The database creation/maintenance is performed either when the computer is idle, or when the screen-saver is running (any screen-saver, not only the avast! one). This database, once it is created, is updated each three weeks (this value may be changed by editing avast4.ini).
If any file is infected by a virus, it is possible to repair it, i.e. turn it to its original state. If there are multiple versions of the file in the database, you can choose which version you want to restore.

Could you please provide me with the exact location within the avast4.ini file to make a change to once a week.  I have not seen
any entry in the avast4.ini file that pertains to the frequency.

Here is a copy of the VRDB section from my Avast4.ini file

[VRDB]
Disabled=0
ScreenSaverOnly=0
MergeIcons=1
LastFile=
FullComplete=1050891832

thank you

The value is called RunInterval.

Please see http://www.avast.com/forum/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=127;start=0 for more info.

If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

Thanks VLK.
I take it that I must create the line under the VRDB.

RunInterval=10080

Correct?
