Avast Software

By john.cb1 ·
I use an anti virus software called Avast

I am having problems with AVast, it appears to be constantly scanning email.

Any ideas how to remedy this

What exactly do you mean here the application is constantly scanning just one piece of incoming E-Mail and not allowing the rest to download or that it is scanning all the incoming & outgoing E-Mail?

If it's the latter this is what is supposed to happen to prevent infections being caught.

it appears to be scanning email when no email is being transmitted?

that is usually caused by a peer to peer client using a similiar packet format. shareaza is known to trigger this with many different av email scanners.
