 :)  Hi :

 I have never heard of a "Right-click scan" !? Our Scans are :
 Boot-time, Quick, Normal, or Throught .

I take it that zheke01 is referring to right clicking on a file , folder , or other media and selecting from the context menu , "Scan with Avast!" . That's my take on the question .
 zheke01, from my experience of such a scan method I will see some activity , such as a popup from Avast! , and then it will stop . If the "right clicked" context menu scan found anything you would be alerted , for sure . No response is a indication of a clean scanned object I believe .

As Abraxas said no response is good, that is why it is called a quick scan it doesn't desplay resukts by default, but you can display them.
