[avast! - INFECTED] Why not state: Disinfected ?
« on: October 27, 2004, 06:38:09 AM »
I have an idea for improving version 4.5.... as was the case for version 4.1,

One suggestion I have concerns the way Avast changes an e-mail subject line after it catches a virus and has then succesfully cleaned it.  Currently, Avast will put "...infected..." in the subject line.  Now some people may think that e-mail is still infected, when in reality it is not as it has been cleaned by Avast.  

I therefore feel that it would be more accurate in such a case for Avast to put in the subject line "Avast disinfected e-mail...."  or something like that, since "disinfected" means it is no longer infected.  See:

Other than that, I think Avast is a great program!
