since Avast has updated itself from version 4.8 to 5 it will not connect to the server to update. Does anyone know how to overcome this?

I still cannot get avast to update so it looks as though it is bye bye to avast

I have raised this on the avast forum and obviously noone else is having this problem as they have not really suggested anything other than the obvious. They suggest going back to avast 4.8 but when I try to download it all that comes up is avast 5.

Avast 4.8 - but you'll need to uninstall 5.0 first

Looks as if you may have to do a thorough clear-out, using the avast removal tool and starting aall over again ... worth it , though. Mine`s working fine.
