How to Stop an avast! Bubble From Spinning


Avast! offers real-time virus scanning with eight separate shields. You can turn individual shields on and off to improve performance or increase security in three general areas: online, file-system protection and network protection. The avast! system-tray icon is an orange globe that spins anytime an avast! shield is performing a scan. The spinning globe is purely aesthetic, and you can turn the animation off through the avast! settings.

  • Point your mouse at the orange globe with the lower-case "a" in your system tray. Click on the globe to open the user interface.

  • Click on "Settings" in the upper-right corner of the avast! user interface screen, next to the wrench icon. The settings window will open.

  • Click on the check mark next to "Animate the Icon while scanning" under the "Appearance" section. The check-mark will be removed.

  • Click on the "OK" button at the bottom of the window. Click the "X" box in the upper-right corner to close the avast! user interface.
