how to set preferred directory?

I use Avant of course, and have a website in which one of the links is to a video analysis program. When I start the video analysis program and I want to open a video file with it, the directory of choice seems to be my Avant subdirectory in "Program Files". I wonder if there is a way, in Avant, to ...

Hi

I am able to update the programs manually and they detect nothing when run - ie no malware of any kind.

Is it possible that proxy settings (I am behind a proxy at the school) or a firewall (I have the standard MS Firewall under XP Pro here) could do it?

Cannot update AVG, Spybot, AD-Aware, SpywareBlaster

Hi I cannot update the above programs automatically on my new ASUS laptop. I was able to do so for the first 2 weeks or so, but for the last 2 - I get a 403 forbidden error on some and just a notice that the connection was terminated for others (AVG). I can go to the websites and update manually (ex...

Avant forum oddities

I emtered the forum 2 days ago and found a PHP logo at the top left and also found that the changelog was up to 10,1 build 17. Came back yesterday and today - no logo, and the changelog is rolled back to 10,0 build 168. Also I have a funny looking favicon for Avant for the last 2 days - it looks lik...

The use of Roboform is optional in build 15, but it is part of the download of build 15 - you cannot avoid it and on a slow connection that is annoying. We went through this in a few builds of 10.1 earlier and it seemed Anderson had dropped it, but it is back.

I notice that build 15 ships with Roboform again. Anderson really wants us to use it - but for those of us on a slow connection it is a pain to have the download unnecessarily doubled in size for a program we do not want.

I see a minor flaw. When I move the mouse over an image I get that image menu bar showing up, which is fine. But if I move the mouse over an image and quickly right click the right click context menu comes up but then the image menu bar also shows up, sometimes under and sometimes over the context m...

Reading this thread I just found out that one can drag the favicon from the address bar to the tab bar and open a new copy of the page doing that. Given that the page must already be open and one can accomplish the same thing be right clicking and choosing Duplicate, I am not sure of the value of th...

I too would like Roboform removed - it bloats the file and I don't and won't use it.

I agree with Mystery

anderson should not push other software on users, regardless of how good it is, esp if they can download it elsewhere.

Right click menu and a particular site

At this site I tried to use the right click menu to add it to my favorites, but the right click menu would not come up, yet is working at other sites I have open. I assume it is something to do with the site itself and how it is constructed. Does anyone have any ideas? Thx http://www.lcdprojectorbul...

Check Avant Options / Clear Records / Typed Addresses.

It should be unchecked I believe in order that typed addresses are kept from session to session
