Thanks for the welcome Charly.

"... just as good as Norton."  Pah! Avast! is way better than Norton pretends to be!
 Apparently true.  I installed Avast! last night and ran a QuickScan as kind of a dry run.  It found a trojan that Norton had not found.

I like it already.

(And I like you guys too.  I appreciate the warm welcome.)

So... when do the gorgeous, female sycophants arrive? Aren't they supposed to be feeding me juicy grapes as I lie back in blissful pleasure? :D  :D

Don't have manual instrutions for setting up avast with Outlook Express, but these instructions for setting it up with Forte Agent is quite similar. Instead of editing the Agent.ini file you need to set up those things inside Outlook (should be easy to find).

Also I have a very short general how to setup (not that detailed).

Anyway, I'll attach the files for you all :-)
Hi Lars,can you help me too,i have just downloaded avast 4.0 and do not know how to set up avast or outlook express 6.0 to detect in/out going mail virus detection?,i previously had NORTON 2003 and it done the scanning automatically,i am a bit worried i am not being protected by avast?,hope you can help.


best regards

Hi deep purple
I'm sorry, but you can't post in all different threads the same question. I believe you have a thread started for this problem.

I believe there is an option to have your grapes peeled automatically!

...the females are here, but as for feeding you grapes, no chance...


I come from frozen tundra with a need for my PC;
I found avast! and saw that it was just the thing for me.
From friendly folk, some grapes I asked,
For that I'd surely vie,
And it seemed to be a simple task;
Suszannah won't you try?

Oh Suszannah, why won't you peel for me?
I come here seeking wisdom
So that I can be carefree.


(with sincere apologies to Stephen Foster)

Algernon our newest poet
He made the words rhyme and didn't even know it.

I like your words they made me smile
Come back and do it again once in a while.

Maybe we should start a thread of rhyme and reason
We could start a new one for each season.

If I do any more of this you'll think I'm cool
even if im just acting like a fool.

This is the last little ditty
cause this poem is really kind of witty.

I like a little bit of frivolity,
And I'm honored to have received your little ditty.
Though Bob, the last part,
It gave me a start,
Yet was relieved to see the last word was "witty".

I wrestled very hard with the alternative. Since changing diapers was never one of my favorite things to do and that reminded me of it, I took the less pungent route. ;D :) ;D
