Auto-Update Visual Indication?
« on: March 17, 2004, 06:39:44 PM »
Is there a way to get a visual indication (maybe the icon tray) that shows when Avast is checking or updating the virus definitions? Thanks  :)

Hi and welcome,

Definitions updates are fast enough and behind-the scenes smooth enough that normally all you'll see (or need to see) is that advisory pop-up afterwards.  Typically I'll get the note while I'm in the middle of checking mail, usually the first thing I do when I come online.

And of course you can try a manual update anytime -- if you're already up to date, it's typically only a couple of seconds and you'll be told that.

Intel Atom D2700, 2 gig RAM, Win 7 x64 SP1 & IE-11, Firefox 51.0
(default). 320 gig HD, 15Mb DSL, Win firewall, Avast 12.3.2280 free, SpywareBlaster, MBAM Prem., Crypto-Prevent

I seem to have 'lost' my little pop-up box that advises of updates, and I haven't altered anything. Any idea how I can get it back please?

Thanks C.
