Avast icon not moving

  seventiesdolly 19:17 06 Jun 2006

I've noticed that the Avast icon on my taskbar no longer 'spins' when I go to different sites like it did before. I know this sounds trivial, but I just wondered why it would suddenly stop doing this?

Right click on the Avast icon and select "Program settings". Click on "Appearance" and check that there is a tick in "Animate the icon when scanning"

Also check that the On Access Scanner / Web shield is active.

Thanks for your replies. Gonzooler, the animate icon box was already checked...?
Seems to be ok this morning though. I am running the free version, but it tells me on start up that I have 44 days left - what am I supposed to do after 44 days?
Also, I keep getting a green box appear, saying a newer version is available to download, but when I check, it is to install the pro version! How do I stop it doing this?

You need to register the free version (avast version 4.7 home edition). click here=

Thanks Rdave13.

You initially obtain a 60 day licence - this can be updated at the website as Rdave13 mentions, but don't forget to tick the box that it's intended for private use. If you donj't it won't be registered.

You will get an e-mail with the new registration listed; copy and paste it into the panel in Avast! from Settings>About Avast!
