I installed the version 9,the UI is simply Horrible!!! Along with Windows 8 Avast have now a horrible UI!
I had some trouble installing it with Outpost firewall pro 8.1.1. Outpost didn't allow Avast to update even when I specified it to allow all Avast services to access internet.
So I make a downgrade to Avast 8.
Very disappointed....

I have used avast and outpost firewall for over nine years without major issue. I'm on the latest versions of both programs on win XP Pro and win7 32 bit and no problem on either system.

What elements of Outpost Firewall Pro (OFP) are you using ?
e.g. Did you elect to use the OFP Web Protect as it isn't really required with avast ?

This is OFP stopping changed/updated avast elements (and blocking changed elements) as the firewall is setup to do, nothing avast can do about that. This is an OFP issue, you need to have OFP allow avast.setup instup.exe for updates to take place (and the other new/changed elements of avast), if the entry is there then delete it and that should force OFP to ask permission again.

Or better still delete all entries for avast elements in OFP and put OFP on to Auto-learn mode for a few days whilst you use the updated avast.

EDIT: new avast update file name in avast 9 - instup.exe

...you need to have OFP allow avast.setup for updates to take place...

Small correction Dave, avast.setup doesn't exist anymore. In V9 you've to allow instup.exe.

If the new version is 9.0.2006 why does my Maintenance window say 9.0.1500? I'm using 8.0.1497.

Thanks.

I have the same question. The program said latest version was to be 9.0.1500 .. now at the forums, it says it 9.0.2006 ... also I hope streaming updates can be turned off. On a slow DSL internet line, keeping them on will slow things down. I let them update every 90 minutes or so. More than enough.

Don't worry, it's just a glitch.

If it is just a glitch which is causing multiple updates before getting to the current version then maybe the people who are seeing this should download the latest version direct from here http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=136785.msg1000473

On a slow DSL internet line, keeping them on will slow things down. I let them update every 90 minutes or so. More than enough.

The point of the streaming updates are:
1. You get them more quickly, meaning you are ahead of the curve on new malware outbreaks/developments.
2. They are considerably smaller as you aren't waiting longer for a larger update, so they really shouldn't slow your connection. Check out the avast\defs folder for the stream sub folders, example '99999999_stream' open that and you will see they are pretty small.

But it is your system and decision.

Why do you run the AvastPe2.exe manually?
http://www.avast.com/en-us/faq.php?article=AVKB114#articleContent

If the creation of USB or ISO fails send me rescuedisk.log from c:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast\log\

When I run it manually, an error message pops-up...

Well, there's no log folder...

Hello,
logs are in "c:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast\log\"

Milos

Found it!!!
Thanks a lot!!! ;)

P.S. It's a clean installation.

Hello,
can you please check if the copype.cmd file in Program Files folder exists on your computer? If you have Windows XP there should be Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\copype.cmd. On Windows Vista and newer Windows Kits\8.0\Assessment and Deployment Kit\Windows Preinstallation Environment\copype.cmd. And what OS do you have - XP/Vista/7/8 x86 or x64 ?

Thank you,
Martin

Hi Martin...
"copype.cmd" is in there... So?!...

Windows 7 Enterprise x64 updated...

In regards to my first post about the version number, from within the UI the program did in fact, update to 9.0.2006 ... so far all is ok. UI is somewhat bland, needs a little color. And what is with the funny color of the Avast Tray Icon ? ? Normally, Orange, but now and then you see it changing to Blue for a bit (when it is animating, I think)

Well,
What i love most is the interface is killing and graphics you guy did was so much great and understanding. For those who don't know how to go about the interface, this is much easier for them to go.

More grace to the AVAST team for their great work and technology. AVAST antivirus is the BEST. Love you all
