Just beside myself....
« on: July 10, 2005, 05:40:22 PM »
I'm new here and really hope someone can help me out.
Every time I log into my PC, a small message comes up bottom right hand corner in RED stating that AVAST cant install the updates. I've clicked on the updates manually but  2 different  error messages comes up. One is - unknown error, skin is not complete and a huge list below. Then the 2nd error comes up.
Cant install VPS update

I also run Microsofts AntiSpyware program. And it found spyware on my PC and when I click on the continue button so it can do what it does with the spyware it shuts off my firewall. I just don't understand. Also when I click on anything a message comes up that it can't find the server' and I have to click on it again. I just have to keep fighting with everything to get to work on my PC.

Welcome to this board Wendy.

Did you gave Avast the proper permissions in the firewall?

ps: Questions like this should be in Avast4 Home/Pro forum
