All seems to be working for me via default

Am i right in saying you use XP or 2000 then? :)
I think it works by default (automaticly) only for win2000/NT/XP/2k, not for older style windows such as win98 or 2000 for example

If I do not use any settings in MSN the EICAR file is saved on my HD withought any warning.
If I am reciving it in mails I got the warning.....

They should save fine, im hoping that the scan will work properly if you change where files are kept after uploading to you.

Nope didden`t help changing the folder, still same problems.
But somtimes one JPG file is done OK now, but most of them is not working.
I have one file that seems to work every time, renamed it so there is "_" in the file name, then it wont work...
File0001.jpg = ok
File_001.jpg = error........
Now I don´t get it  ???

P.S. I am running Win98 SE, maby it means somthing....

Hmm, this is strange, can you find the file, right click it and select "scan ........." (......... = filename), it will have the avast "A" icon next to the word scan, does avast successfully scan the file?

Hi HCH,

Checked my MSN settings and it is not even ticked to scan with virus's. I guess its avast which scans the folder where the file ends up by default on windows XP.

As was said in the post above, avast can only scan msn by dafult on win2000/NT/XP/2k OS's, not win95/98(se)ect  ;), it is a windows limitation not avast.
But properly configerd avast will scan msn, but i am unsure to the answer to your problem hch, did you try to right click scan the file like i suggested?, this may provide some help  :)
