In the Program Settings GUI -> Update/Connections, you see "dial up" or "always on" (I don't know what the English GUI shows to you)?

I try that Kamulko! and still they turn it off.  Right now, I'm not gonna touch the settings cause it turns off Automatic Update for some reason. Gonna keep working at this problem.

mmm... I'm suspecting a defect in the related GUI/Avast4.ini... now I leave... tomorrow I will take a look here again. Hope you can solve the problem, Friend.
Ciao... and good luck  ;)

Okay guys I finally solve the problem, it was the XML and ODBC database.  I switch back to ODBC cause I was using XML for quite a while.  After switching back to ODBC, they kept the Automatic Updates On after clicking on it.  Now it's back to normal, thanks for all your help guys.   :)

I can still update avast! (thank goodness) It's just after clicking on "On" it turns off Automatic update.
Perhaps it is acting like a toggle switch. If the updates are already set to automatic it is switching them to manual, give it a try and see if it acting like a toggle without having to edit the avast4.ini.

For me, it deals with the ODBC and XML, if you change your database to XML, change it back to ODBC and see if it works.

I did that first, but it wasn't acting as a toggle, it was just one click and stay.  I had to access the avast4.ini. to change it to automatic.  But it's okay now cause I change the database from XML to ODBC and it fix it.






Heres an update:  After I change it to ODBC, now I can't change it to Manuel Update, I don't really mind Manuel Update, I rather choose Automatic, but now avast! won't turn off automatic updates until I change the database back to XML.  You think it's a bug from the beta?

Don't worry, Essexboy! The privilege of the windows user is this; no Linux fanatic can feel our special "dialogue" with our pc (e.g.: "Damn...what's the hell... Please, reboot now... oh, nooooo!!!"  :P ). The easy things are not so fascinating!  ;D ;D ;D

Good sleuth work guys...

It turns out that the "Use XML Storage" check box was broken. Instead of setting the XML storage, it was turning off automatic updates... :)

It will be fixed in the upcoming beta refresh (later today?)

Thanks for the heads up.
