Avast Free in Windows 8 update notifications
« on: July 26, 2013, 05:56:21 PM »
Hi All
I have avast free in windows 8 64 bit set to auto update with verbal notification. The update is downloaded automatically but does not install except on odd occasions and the same applies to verbal notifications. Is it me or is the software messing me about.
