Popups
« on: September 06, 2012, 10:24:17 AM »
For the past 2 or 3 days I haven't gotten any of the green update popups.  When I look at the Avast icon in my taskbar the popup is grayed out so I can't click on it.   I didn't notice this until someone else posted the same problem.  I had to manually last evening.   It's showing my computer is fully secured.  I ran a quick scan this am. and no threats were found.

Should I be concerned about this?

Thanks in advance for anyone's advice.

Might be good to post what program version you're running -- maybe the latest, 1466?

Did a repair, rebooted and immediately got the update popup message.  The popup link or whatever it's called is no longer gray.

Thanks for your help.
