    I have run Avast for several months. The little icon was always in the toolbar and would spin when I went to different websites! It is now gone. TUT says it is running but it scares me that it is gone. Any answers?? I can bring it up and scan for viruses from start >>all programs. Is it okay?[​IMG]

    What OS are you running? XP has a tool that hides inactive tool bars. If you right click on the tool bar at the bottom, and click properties, do you see an option to "hide inactive items"? Since that is used so quick, maybe it doesn't have time to show it as active. You can click on "customize", find the icon and set it to always show.

    Just found this tonight.

    I have XP I tried what you said but no icon comes up. I guess as long as it says it is running I'm okay. Unless someone else has a suggestion.
