my first repl post!
really, this project is quite simple. It took me about a day to create because i have other projects on my PC that use similar code. so it sped the GUI ahead, meaning that I did not have to do much. the modules i used were aioavast, ttkthemes (Equilux theme only!), os (os.walk). as it says IT USES A ENGINE SIMILAR/ THE SAME AS AVAST. i got that via pip as an alternative to clamd/pyclamd because they would not work.
I had to research a lot while doing this to the point i've forgotten almost every site/blog I went to.
Just want to say, that i'm fine with you copying/forking it because there are no projects that are to do with antiviruses.
aioavast is classified in python, like clamd, an antivirus or an antivirus engine. I've been pretty much self-teaching myself for a year.
please note: i have not tested this with viruses because i don't want to destroy my own computer (even with a VM) mainly because it's set only to work on it's root drive. so if it's on drive C:\ it only walks drive C:!
Feedback is appreciated.
One last question...
is there any way to make it so it can quarintine files and delete them with aioavast?
current version: version 01.00.523
- Performance increase (tkinter --> pyqt gui engine)
- Changed theme
Reported/noticed bugs :
- Lag/slow performance when scanning drive C:\ on windows. (fixed)
- works faster if you minimise it (fixed)

Very nice, I tested this with a virus and it found it perfectly, instead of putting it into quarantine a simpler way might be to just change the file extent to something useless, like a txt. That should render it harmless.
@Lethdev2019 yeah I could probably help. I would probably use some html and css as well. Also I'm in Pacific Standard Time, so it might be harder to fit in a multiplayer session. Either way, I keep repl up during and after school, so I have a pretty large range of time available. I thought I would tell you the time zone cause 6 hours ago (which is when you replied to me), it was like 2 am in the morning :D
For me, I have something to do at 7:30 PT (pacific time), so anywhere from ~3:00 to 6:00 PT I'll be good. I could help during school, but I think the teachers would get pissed.
I think you should try to make this a desktop app! Though if you haven't tested it, I can recommend: save hard drive state -> testing it -> everything fails and computer is rigged -> restore previous state on hard drive -> :) Good work though, I can't really make real world applications.
