resident protection
« on: April 02, 2004, 11:24:41 AM »

A few days ago I noticed that the Avast icon in the system tray has disappeared (resident protection). Normally, the icon appeared automatically when starting Windows.
When starting Avast, I saw that the resident protection was "disabled"; changing it to "standard" has no effects; after closing Avast and restarting, the option always returns to "disabled".


What's the solution ?

(Windows ME, latest build and latest VPS installed)

Hi,
first try the protection with the harmless testfile eicar.com from www.eicar.com
if you get a warnign by avast, maybe's just somethings wrong with your icon cache/display

if not:
try repairing avast via Software/programs -> uninstall avast
if that doesn't help check your PC with Onlinescanners from Trendmicro and ravantivirus ;)

are there any warnings in the event-log or devicemanager ?

 :)Thanks, the option "UNINSTALL -> REPAIR" worked; I got my avast-icon back...
