popup still & FW interest
« on: January 13, 2015, 08:44:50 PM »
Hi 2 things
1), my thinking that my avast is running fine becuz the main screen says everything is up to date even though the popup still says my definitions are out of date OR this other pg that says AVAST reports that               it's out of date?
--=-iv tried repairs and re installing, but no effect

2) Today  I stated seeing this alert from pc tools firewall plus. I don’t see a 'repair' option on the uninstall screen. I thought sine many here have inside knowledge on certain free programs, maybe someone knows what is up with the free firewall I use

Thanks

Technically this may or not be a new topic, cuz the avast pop up Q was mentioned earlier. BUT   the fw thing is new, and it might Go away on its own. idk

imo you should look for another firewall, PC Tools was bought by Symantec (Norton) some years ago and has been left to wither and die.
