Avast On-access scanner password
« on: April 24, 2004, 11:22:28 PM »
Whenever I click on the Avast On-access scanner in my taskbar, it asks me for a password.  I don't know what it is.  How can I reset that password?

I had the same problem aswell but not long ago i tried right click on the avast icon, in the task bar and choose: Set/Change Password.  Then type in your old password when prompts and leave New Password and Confirm New Password blank.  Then you don't need to type password again.  ;D

Natha44,
He just said he doesn't know his password so he can't change it?

Maybe the user can send an IM to anybody from Alwil (probably Vlk) and ask for help on changing the password... Sometimes in the past I heard that is the only way you'll receive help (for security reasons I suppose).
