Avast -- resident protection

Posted: 07-10-2008, 01:36 AM

Hello everyone
In an earlier post, I inquired whether I should turn off Avast'
"residen protection" as it was scanning my internet mails. I was advise
to turn it off. I did. But now Security Center was warning that Malwar
Protection was turned off, and it listed Avast as being turned off. So
I turned it back on
My question is : I thought I was just turning off part of the Avast'
protection. No

You were apparently turning it ALL off.

Try again.

Hi t-4-2,

You turned off all of the protection. To turn on or off individual
components:

1. Right click on the blue A ball.
2. Click on "On-Access Protection Control".
3. Click on the "Details... >>" button at the bottom to see all of
them.
4. Start all of them except the one for Windows Mail ("Internet Mail")
to have as "Terminate".
5. Slide the Sensitivity slider to High for each one for better
security.
6. Click OK when done.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

t-4-2 I left email scanning with Avast on in XP, and I leave it on with Vista.
All my emails get through.

Hi Tomsa,

I would just leave it as is with Avast running with all of the default
scanner modules. If you have any problems with Windows Mail from the
Avast email scanner interfering, then only "Terminate" the "Internet
Mail" scanner module.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
