Virus Definitions not updating, new thread...
« on: November 27, 2013, 02:57:58 PM »
I realize there is an old thread started by dallas, but it's swamped and off on tangents. Please refrain from that here....  :D
I just noticed that the def updates are not updating. Tried manually, NG too. Never noticed this. Seems it's been since 31111-0 or ...26?, comes up as an 'unknown error'...
See attached...

Running Latest Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit...
Latest Avast Internet Security...

Ok, just got back. went into Avast itself and it finally had a successful update. Got me on that one. Tried all morning to get it to work. Maybe at Avast Server side?
