why  if after I open the option to show last message pop-ups from the avast icon also always displays the version of the virus definitions ?  :o

Hi,

yes this is ok. Some of the popups are online and might contain slightly different information than the hardcoded. If you are still interested in the update number it can be found under Maintenance tab.


I understand that not always the version of definitions appears .. is this correct? ???

Yes.

Yes.

By the way, do you have any idea about what exactly  "some of the popups are online" means?

Sorry, I could only guess.

Did anyone with the broken popup start getting the normal popup back yet?

Yesterday I uninstalled avast! IS, ran the aswclear software, reinstalled and reinserted the license, but still no luck...

Why do only certain people have this issue?

There isn't any problem. If you read the post a few items back, you'll see the explanation.
What's important is getting the updates and that still happens just like before.
If the VPS update version is really that important to you then after the update happens you can always see the
current version:

That's the thing though, it's all well and good saying everything is fine but this is not something that everyone seems to be experiencing, I just had the same smaller pop-up a second ago when I booted up, it just bothers me that a few days ago it was a full sized pop-up with the definition number included whereas now it's a smaller pop-up.  If this was a new thing and everyone was seeing it with each update... fair enough but it's something that's happening to some people and not to others... I can't help but feel bothered about that.

Why exactly is there a cut down pop-up for only some of us whilst others are getting the normal popup?  Is there a setting an update changed which we can change back?  Knowing why this is happening would put my mind at ease rather than just being told everything is fine whilst some people seem to have this happening and others don't.  It does concern me that in some posts I've seen it's been a matter of "as long as this thing is working, you are fine"... I paid for an avast product, is there anything wrong with wanting ALL of it to run smoothly and have peace of mind?

The oddest thing though is I cleanly reinstalled the program and I have the issue still

As already explained, it isn't an issue. :)
We don't all get our updates from the same source.

As of this moment I am still getting the cut down pop up simply telling me that the definitions have been updated, is this going to change?  Or is this how the updates will look from now on.

About Avast has the definition down as 130603-2 and earlier it had updated to 1.  I presume this means that the definitions are updating when they say they do, just wish there was more on WHY it is doing this for some of us and not others... is this a Euro/UK thing?

The pop-ups are displaying properly for me and I'm in the UK so that shouldn't be causing the problem.

When some pop-ups are online, it means that the coding changes have been rolled out in that area and not in other areas. 

Takes some time to push this out to some 170,000,000 + active users scattered all over the world.  Does not happen instantly.
