Add Protection Module After Installation?
« on: May 14, 2009, 03:02:23 AM »
When I installed the latest home version, I only chose the resident and web shields.  Is it possible to add the web shield now, after installation, or would I have to do the whole install over again?  THANKS!

You said you only chose resident and web shield, so you already have it.

I would suggest the minimum is the Standard Shield, Network Shield (nothing to do with local networks), Internet Mail and thw Web Shield.

From Windows Add Remove programs, select 'avast! Anti-Virus,' click the Change/Remove button and scroll down to Change, click next and from the pop-up use the check the box opposite the options you want to enable. Once selected click Next and OK your way out.

You're welcome.

I would also advise adding the Internet Mail provider and not only that but set its sensitivity to High as this could give your first indication that you have an undetected/hidden trojan spambot on your system.
