Well, I wish I could say everything is fine.

Now, my computer wants to continually reboot.
the Avast "wants to restart" message keeps coming up.

Anyone experience thius yet?  This error occurred right after the update to 542 last night.

My XP seems ok, but the W98 has the problem.
Have not updated the ME system yet until I can figure out what is going on.

Truthfully, I now fear every program update.  Not once has an update been installed without causing havoc on one of my systems.   :'(

Oh well.....so much for the word universal.   ;D

There is a thread with a possible solution. I think it was Vlk who gave it and it had something to do with a registry key. Gonna try to find it.

Yes, this is a bug that will be fixed promptly. There's another forum thread about this. It's only a win9x thing... sorry. :-\

Auto-update for defs works fine for me.  I frankly don't know if my ask-if-available for upgrades is behaving properly, since I generally do a manual check for those anyway, especially if I know there's a new one out or about to come out.

If you mean checking the ask-when-available thing, I promise to keep hands-off next time until that's had a chance to do its thing.  What the heck, everything seems to be working fine on my system, so it's not like I frantically need the next upgrade the instant it comes online.

While we are at this... I've noticed so many threads speaking about new updates... one minute it's 542, very next minute it's 546... that's great, but it's very hard to find thread that gives us info about latest build. We, who like to surf these forums more often than new guys are pretty lucky, 'cause there is slight chance to find those information, but new guys will have so much trouble searching...

My suggestion, and I don't believe it's a huge request, is... to make something like on this screenshot. That's the part of Pop Peeper (E-mail notification program) forum. It's called announcement, and it's pretty much closed thread. The only one who can add it, is moderator or programmer itself... like Vlk, Pavel or Igor...

In that thread, you can find just announcement about some new updates and stuff like that... very very useful if you ask me.

Can we have it in here ? Sticky locked thread... very simple to make and maintenance. We all would have a great oportunity to easily find latest information about latest program updates... and, we will have update history as well...

Cheers !

What's new in the 4.5.546 ?
Did you see this? http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=9189;start=75#lastPost

Very good idea Sasha  8), the name of the thread should change from 4.5.542 to 4.5.546  :P

Aha, the light dawns ... OK, if I understand correctly then it could be up to 8 days before my ask-when-available "wakes up" to discover 546, but I'll sit back and wait, as promised.  8)

Wonderful idea to have a sticky announcements thread - I'm new to this forum and am finding it very confusing to keep track of all the issues and updates etc.  (I was reading posts for ages just now before I even realized there was a new .546 version out today.  I'm downloading it now.)
An announcement posted by one of the moderators would be a huge help, perhaps with a link to a changelog elsewhere.
Thanks for all the hard work.

VLK,

"Havoc"...only in jest my friend.  My computers complain alot but I try not to listen to them.  ;)

Which reality are we in now?  542 or 546?  Sounds like a Star Trek trip.   ;D

Have not tried the new 546 on my Win98 yet, but will post how it goes.

Thanks for keeping on top of the problems and issuing a new build.


Sasha,


I like your idea of an area on the forum where we can read up on the changes in a new release or build.

Great, guys... so far no complains about this idea, that's good. And I really think it would be really useful. Also, Vlk wouldn't have so much difficulties to decide in which part of the forum he should post some announcement. Let's put it in root folder ( hehe  ;D ). It will be much more accessible for everyone. Always, when he or any other member of Alwil team has to say something or announce something, all they have to do is to go to ANNOUNCEMENTS thread, post it in there, and everybody happy  ;D Make the subject line of that thread marked in red or some other color, so it would attract our attention even more...

Guys, let's do something about this issue then...  ;)

Cheers !
