won't auto update
« on: July 28, 2012, 11:45:28 PM »
avast free 7.0.1456
windows 7 32 bit
windows firewall
past security software:
avg free
mcafee security plus
windows defender
microsoft security essentials
ad aware free
all of my past security software was uninstalled using add/remove programs

I have done the avast repair option. I used the avast uninstall utility and re installed avast. In the update settings I have checked 'my computer is permanently connected to the internet'. The proxy settings are direct connection (no proxy). This started about 2 months ago. It will update if a manually click update in avast.

i recomend you run uninstall tool for all previous used security programs to clear all leftover files that may conflict

run and reboot - Uninstallers – Security Software

you may also run CCleaner and the registry clean option
CCleaner - slim (no toolbar)   http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/builds

I ran the uninstall utilities. I ran a registry cleaner. It still won't auto update.

@TerraX
you mean post a hijackthis log here for a check


then we have a much better tool here.... OTL
 
you can do that, then Essexboy can have a look inside and see if he spot something strange

how to get a OTL log you see here in this guide.    http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=53253.0
