have you update the virus defination regularly?
« on: September 29, 2003, 12:02:43 PM »
i always check for new virus definations but it says that it is up to date. However, this is strange when I update virus or even update program in the middle of September, it says that the virus defination is up to date on 2003-8-3. Is it dangerous, or not nesessary to notice this, or the defination is really up to date?

Once after I updated the Avast program , the program didn't work......

Although I have a little complain, I still like Avast! Forever~

Hi,

I have Virus-Definitions 0309-4 from 26 Sep. 2003 with prog version 4.1.268

what WIN do you have ? What avast version exactly ?
Did you try a manual update for program & VPS ?
how do you connect to inet ? do you use a firewall/proxy/router ?

if further attempts to update don't work, maybe a clean uninstall and reinstall of the newest version from www.avast.com would be advisable, or give some more info here..



 ;)

Wing, have you tried to download the vps file manually? They're located at http://www.avast.com/i_idt_250.html for avast! 4.

Maybe it works ???
