I don't think it's needed to point to ashquick, the IM module should scan anything generated through IM communications. As to hotmail, if you're using DeltaSync (protocol) in Windows Live Mail, avast mail scanner can't scan that. But the file shield will be watching ;) If you're only connecting to hotmail in a browser, the mail shield isn't involved, it only takes care of email clients. Hotmail in browsers is http traffic.

just checked: files transferred through WLM are obviously scanned by the IM module. You don't need to do anything, leave the box empty in wlm settings ;)
