I just lucked upon the solution, I guess.
Like y'all, I came to the forum actually looking for a solution and to see if others were having the same +1 minute delay problem, following the program update to build 4.5.561.
I took one last attempt at repairs, when I just clicked on the Proxy Settings button, just to check.
(Note: This proxy setting can also be changed in the path: Control Panel-->Add-Remove Programs-->Avast-->Repair>Proxy Settings). Make sure you are logged on as "administrator" on WinXP when doing this settings change.
This is where I changed mine back to "Direct connection to internet", as I have a Cable Broadband connection.
I saw that this eliminated the delay problem, and discovered this only minutes before my previous post (first post ever on the Avast forums).

I feel great, that I could help other Avast users with the problem, as well as myself.
That's what these forums are all about,, helping others. I just stumbled on it by luck.
I emailed the Avast support team, in hopes that they address this problem and let all other Avast users be aware of the problem and the solution/workaround. (Or at least have them get back to me with a gratuity of 30% of all annual sales,, lol,, just joking). ;D ;D ;D

Thanks for the "Thanks" & A Best 2005 to you all,
Whadayamean it's broke,,,   let me make sure!

I've been noticing this too ... But my update time is much faster compared to others around here, taking about maybe 12-40 seconds. But, I have seen a minute over the time ...

Funny thing is, I still use Dial-Up occasionally, and it is fast there (keeping its original update speed). Also, my update might be faster because I don't have my DSL network connected at start-up, I connect it later when I need Internet. Maybe if its at start-up, the start-up processes slow down the update progress.
