Hi Simps,
In the AVG control centre, it shows all the components are functional exept the email scanner.
I click on it to try to find out how to activate it but nothing happens. It just says, component is not active.

Hi, When you right clik the little globe in the notification area, Has the provider been paused? If so is the "resume provider" button available?

The AVG centre shows all the components active except Email scanner .

Nothing happens when I right click on the Email scanner icon. wich is a magnifying glass, and an envelope, not a globe.

No notification or anything to say the provider has been paused.


Thanks.

Open the control center and click on the Email scanner.
Now there should be a Activate and Properties buttin on the lower right.
Click then Activate and it should change the Email scanner from red to blue.
The Email scanner should also say "Email scanner is fully functional"
It can still be blue but say "No plug-in is active"
So click on Properties and when the Properties comes up you should see the plug-in tab.
Now go down and make sure the "Ignore plug-in status" box is unchecked. Then click apply and then click OK.
Then it mayturn red again so click Activate button.

The Email scanner should also say "Email scanner is fully functional" when all is working right.

Thanks Hewee,
But there is no activate properties button on the lower right or anywhere .

It is just as I say, Email scanner not activated, nothing happens if I click on the icon , left or right.

Hi Fiddler, My mistake, I miss-read your AVG! Mine is Avast. Sorry about that! Mine has a little globe in the notification area.

Is the plugin disabled? If it is then you will not see the Activate.
Here is the plugin tab and the email scanner with the setting on each high lighted.
So look to see if your plugin tab looks like mine. Then you should see the the Activate button.

No worries Benny Bumble, thanks for trying to help out.

I am looking through Hewee's reply, seems like he has the answer. I thought it might be something to do with the plug in.

Thanks Hewee,
But I think you have illustrated the AVG Free version with the personal email scanner.

I have installed the AVG Internet Security 8.0, and the thumbnail illustrations you have shown here are not quite the same. If only I knew how to show you what mine looks like.
All the components are fully functional exept the email scanner , which has a little red square with a white cross in the middle. all the rest have a green box with a tick.

There is no activation button in the menu , but I have now noticed says there are currently no plug-ins installed !
how do get the plug-in ?

The Anti-Spam component is active , but perhaps because I have just installed Internet Security 8.0, the anti spam feature has to get to know what emails i don't wan't, before the email scanner starts working. I don't know.

Thanks

,

Sorry I do see it was the email scanner on Internet Security 8.0.
Plus now you know there is no plugin. So look aound at the email scanner and the Properties and find out where the plugin setting are at. Bet getting the activate button will show up after you get that plugin going again. Just look at all tabs, settings, configs etc.
Plus I can right click the email scanner and pick activate if the plugin is disable.
