Hi  :)

Avast 5 Free - Version.. 5.0.462 - to - 5.0.507 ... Not Good!  :(

Just updated my Laptop  ???

Avast 5 seems to be working OK  :-\

I have it configured to "Ask when an update is available" (a program update, that is).  The main window says "A new version of the program is available!".  So OK, if avast! knows an update is available, why didn't it ask?  If I hadn't checked the GUI myself, I wouldn't have known.

@marquita188

did you reboot after install ?
have you tried avast repair and reboot ?

For a repair of avast. Windows, Add Remove programs, select 'avast! Anti-Virus,' click the Change/Remove button from the pop-up window, scroll down to Repair, click next and follow.

it's just like that...to avoid overloading the servers. If everybody was warned at the same time, ie immediately after a new version was available, nobody could get it. From what I read it takes about a week or so until all Avast users get the message. It's just technically impossible to proceed differently due to the amount of users, and Avast isn't Microsoft ;) (note that Windows Update servers are damned slow ;D ...fortunately it's never more than a few megs a week )
