Hi,Just installed avast yesterday and this morning the blue ball in the system tray is spinning like mad,does that mean that its scanning ?.another item when i left click on the ball i get a box come up and resident protection there are two choices normal or high what would be the best to set to.Thanks.daiol
The ball spins when it's creating a database for VDRB. If a virus gets through then Avast has the ability to repair a damaged or infected file; "VRDB
VRDB stands for "Virus Recovery Database"; it was known as "Integrity Database" in previous avast! versions. The aim of VRDB is to help when, despite all the security measures, a virus gets inside the computer and the files are infected. With the help of VRDB, it is possible to repair many infected files (return them exactly to their original state). VRDB is announced by an icon with the letter "i" in the system tray (next to the clock). If the icon is animated, the database is being created right now." I have set VRDB to run only when the computer is idle. If you hover the mouse pointer over the 'a' icon in sys tray it will show that the scanners are running.
