Hi,
I know that this topic was often discussed but i can't get it going. I just formated my hdd and installed win 7 and the actual version of avast again. As default i am blocking every connection at the win 7 firewall. I remember that i needed to give permission to avast.setup (%ProgramFiles%\AVAST\Avast\setup\avast.setup) and AvastSvc.exe (%ProgramFiles%\AVAST\Avast\AvastSvc.exe) now i also read that i need to give permission to AvastEmUpdate.exe (%ProgramFiles%\AVAST\Avast\AvastEmUpdate.exe). I did all that but it is still not working. Were there any changes? Do i need to allow any other files?
Best Regards
Stefan

You have to allow instup.exe in the latest versions. (Replaces avast.setup)

Big thx. Now it works. And its actually a better option than a file which is only there during the update.
