VDRB and A Balls
« on: January 18, 2009, 01:01:11 PM »
I have noticed that the two blue balls are not in my tray anymore. How can I get them back to the tray?

1. Check the option in the Appearance tab of settings.
2. Repair your avast installation through Control Panel.
3. Make a link to ashdisp.exe in your startup folder
4. Add the path to ashDisp.exe into a value named avast! in the Windows Registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
See picture here:

If that does not help, please, uninstall, boot, install again, boot.

What other security based software do you have that might block new startup entries, e.g. Spybot S&D (TeaTimer), AdAware (AdWatch), SpySweeper, Spyware Doctor (StartUpGuard), PrevX, WinPatrol, ProcessGuard, etc.?

For the 'i' icon (VRDB):
Check your avast4.ini file settings. Click 'Settings' in my signature and browse for the VRDB section.
