Failing to find Viruses
« on: January 09, 2014, 11:00:13 PM »
Program Version 2014.9.0.2011
Virus Definitions 140109.0

Ran a quick scan and nothing was found.  I know I have viruses.  One that I am sure of is the 'Postmaster@mail.hotmail.com" as I just got an email from it.

Also (unrelated) my Avast failed to update automatically.  I had to do it manually.  I noticed that the last failed update attempt was listed as being 29minutes prior to my manually updating.  I was running version 7.insert.forgotten.numbers.here.  Do I have something blocking my automatic updates?

Thank you for any help.
