Recently re-installed Avast anti-virus free personal version. Everything seems to work fine, but today had error message stating that it could not update.

Tried to locate a manual check procedure but got confused. Can anyone walk more through a procedure (if there is one), so as to keep Avast in perfect safeguard mode.

Right click the icon on the task bar,go to updating then click AVS update or program update.

You did regester online for the validation code? this is free and gives you unlimited updates,well for a few years at least.

I use Avast and ocassinaly get similar messages.

Invariably these occur when I'm offline, yet Avast is still trying to communicate with the 'Mother Ship'.

What is the latesrt anti-virus definition you are showing?

From memory (I'm not in front of my home PC) the last one is dated 14 Feb

ACOLTYE-- Installed and registered the programme and updated all at the same time.

Jackcoms-- Appears one of those many mysteries in life!.

Just made another check, and everything seems upto date. Still wondering about the error warning message though!.

Ticked as resolved. Thanks guys.
