avast not getting updated
« on: October 06, 2014, 09:29:56 PM »
dear all
avast is unable to update itself by the use of proxy. I don't know what is the reason behind this. Please help. Also, the antivirus is not getting registered online.

What version of avast you are using? Did you try doing a repair of avast via add/remove? What previous antivirus did you use prior to installing avast?
