Virus definitions Updates - Don't seem to be updating?
« on: October 21, 2013, 01:00:48 PM »
Hi,

I have noticed over over the past few days I have had the new upgrade to avast 9
That my virus definitions seem to be  131019-1 and haven't been updating to the latest file update

I have installed avast and tried a re-install but still the virus definitions seems to be always 131019-1
And not updating to the latests definition file

Also although I have it set to show popup of updates I have had no notification to say virus definitions have been updated - even though streaming updates is checked

I like a few others have been having the problem also with slow shut-down and and restart
Since having the avast upgrade 9  uni-stalling avast I have no problem with shut-down and restart

It seems to hang before it shut-down and close PC  the same when PC refresh it hangs before it will refresh

Thanks - Steve

Slow shutdown or start is not a problem for me,  plus my VPS is 131020-0 so all is good on that front.  :)
