But any help would be very greatful thx.

sorry there r so many threads to go through on here not sure which 1 would be suitable that matches my reply ive seen a few but there mainly to do whith manual updates and bad installs of avast. the only thing that was checkmarked was in settings silent mode saying silent when full screen app is running not sure if my issue is related to that but ice unchecked that box now. if u can can u please post a link to the 1 that matches the ? im asking about as I say I am new to the programme. but I left everything on default when I put avast in but no voice updates whatso ever me friend has avast and he said u should be having them comeing through u will know as the voice will say avast has been updated he as ad about 2 or three in one day before. only I have not had 1 since install yesterday and was just concerned if its working right.

RadioFan12,

Could you clarify if you are actually getting the virus definitions updates but no voice confirmation or are you just getting the streamed updates which, as far as I know, do not have voice confirmation.   You can check this in the program's 'Setting' / 'Update' window where you can see the current version and its release date and time.  You can also see the latest update received and its date and time.  The latter is likely a streamed update so a later time than that of the current version would be normal (there are lots of streamed updates daily but only a few and possibly only one virus definitions folder update).  If the date and time of the current version is significantly earlier, say a day or more, you can assume that automatic updates is not working correctly although you will be protected by the regular streamed updates.  If this is the case, you may need to do a complete fresh reinstall of Avast.

To do a complete fresh reinstall of Avast, download the Avast Uninstall Tool for your system (http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility) and also download Rejzor's AvastCleanupTool (https://onedrive.live.com/?cid=94a12102e5094675&id=94A12102E5094675!952&authkey=!AHu_KR3cJN1jHt4).  Download Avast so you have it ready on your system to use directly you complete the uninstallation. Uninstall Avast via Windows, run the Avast Uninstall Tool in Safe Mode (you will be directed to Safe Mode by the program) and then run Rejzor's AvastCleanupTool.  I had this problem myself and this strtegy did resolve it for me.
