Culpeper: It is a low-res skin, that's used automatically for low monitor resolutions (or more likely for low number of colors (16), I'm not sure) - which is the case when the Windows are running in Safe mode.

If you want to use it even for ordinary resolutions, you can enable it - go to the avast4\Data\Skin folder, find the "low res.asws" file and rename it to anything else (e.g. "verysimple.asws"). Now, you will see the skin in the ordinary "Skin selection" dialog and you will be able to use it as any other skin.

But I warn you - it's really not a nice skin  8)


Thanks!

I like it and thanks again for the instructions. ;D

To Mantra thanks for the info I will give doctor web a try. Lately I have not been very happy with avast. Right now I am running the active scan by panda . It is also free. I can not yet say how could it is but it does run faster than avast. Half hour versus over two hours. With a normal skin it never did complete.

I don't like Dr. Web... Poorly written website, 5 articles in their helpfile (of some old version). You must REBOOT to change settings in the RTM...
