what happened to my blue wirling ball
« on: February 10, 2010, 01:28:23 AM »
I use the free home version and I just updated my coverage with a newer version and now I don't see the famous spinning blue ball. What happened and how do I get it back.  I get updates and ran a memory check last night on the C drive and got back a report that all was fine in terms of no virus's, so  I have to believe I still have coverage.

Thanks
CTO

There was much debate (heated at times) about this as the original icon closely matched another copyrighted one I believe. So it had to change and since the website was undergoing a big style revamp also with a colour scheme the icon colour was going to be orange and old 'a' had to be changed too.

I was just thinking the other day that maybe I needed to update my avatar to reflect v5.0. But, why? I've always liked it and now it will be nostalgic.

My forever gratitude to SasH for making it for me. :)

I like the new a ball.

I sure would not want to go back to the old interface!

But why the ugly a ball! :o

The blue "a ball" was classy and had an "a" that looked like an "a".

The orange a ball is tacky.
