update inconsistancy
« on: October 28, 2003, 05:33:01 PM »
hi,

hi, i have a curious problem.  my interface shows:

"Current version of virus database:  0310-0 21.10.03"

the avast home page reveals that the latest virus database update is "0310-2 27.10.03."  when i hit either the link from the home page or the interface to update, the program updates seemingly correctly and displays a summary window stating "Vps: already up to date (current version 0310-2)" yet the interface still shows as above.  any ideas on this?

Interesting indeed. What is the file size and timestamp of file <avast>\data\400.vps ?

Also, does this behavior persist even after reboot of the system?

Thanks, Vlk

sorry for the delay in reply.  adequately responding to your reply is beyond the scope of my computer expertise.  i uninstalled the program with avast's avclear4 and then reloaded it.  this resolved the issue.  thanks for your help.

Besides the problem was solved, Vlk, could you tell us from where the Simple User Interface gets the information about the VPS file? Registry, avast.ini, 400.vps file? Thanks.  ;)
