Window doesn't close after scan
« on: July 14, 2010, 02:58:26 AM »
I just upgraded to 5.0.594 - free version. In the previous version, when I right clicked to run a scan, the scan window would automaticallu close when the scan completed if there were no errors. With this version, the window stays open. I have the "Automatically open the scan results when scan is finished" option off. It's the only one I can see that might cause this. Is there a way to have teh window close automatically as before?

Hmmm... It shouldn't remain opened...
I've tested and it is remain opened. A bug ???

My right click scan has always remained open in avast 5, it was only in 4.8n that the right click scan windows closed; so much so that many complained that they wanted it to remain open and show the results of the scan.

I don't think it is a bug... I prefer to have it open so I can see the results.

I think that is the purpose of the option I mentioned - so the user can decide if it stays open or not.

There used to be the reverse option in 4.8 where you could have it remain open. Unfortunately when avast choose to have it remain open by default in avast5, they didn't give the option to have it close.
