How do I scan?
« on: September 02, 2004, 01:33:12 PM »
I don't get it ... how do I scan?  ::)

When I double-click on the a ball, I get a screen with no menus.  Under Provider Actions, I have the option to start, pause, or terminate.  (I assume this is referring to scanning.)  I hit start, and it seemed like it began to scan in fits and starts.  Now it looks like it is stuck on ypager.exe and says Scanned count: 61 after 42 minutes.

Please advise.

Right click the 'a' blue ball and choose start avast antivirus.
Choose what you want to scan (areas) and click on Play button  ;)

Thanks for the instructions, Technical.  It turns out the problem was using the blue ball in the lower-right corner instead of the desktop icon, which opens the interface with the play button to which you refer.

Another way I just discovered to run a scan is to click on the little up arrow on the upper-left corner of that interface, then select "run a scan" or some such.
