Not Enough Storage Error
« on: October 05, 2015, 05:22:35 PM »
I'm having issues updating the virus definitions, I was receiving an error about not having enough storage, thing is I have re-installed the Avast Free version and I am still having issues.

I had registered till Nov 16, but since I have reinstalled after attempting to update it says I am up-to-date, yet when I check into the about section for the virus database it says it's 2009.

I am using version 4.8.1637, is this too old? also am I right in saying that Avast has finally dropped support for 98?

When did it drop support for 98? as it was fine just a couple of days ago.

If you need AV for museums OS   ;)   W98

ClamWin   http://www.clamwin.com

For realtime protection you need to add Clam Sentinel  http://clamsentinel.sourceforge.net

To be honest, that 98 was supported a few days ago is new to me. ;)

Windows 98 as a game machine might be OK provided it doesn't go on the internet.

Also see: https://blog.avast.com/2015/05/06/support-for-older-avast-windows-consumer-version-will-end/

Says on that blog link that it would continue with the definition updates for older versions , but I take it that 98 is excluded.

Also what does clam sentinel actually bring to clamwin?

Well the full virus definitions update is still available for avast 4.8.0 https://www.avast.com/download-update, so I would have thought if that is their the regular VPS auto updates would still be available.

"not having enough storage"

A simple question would be ¿ Do you have enough free space in that HDD ? being a PC with Win 98 how big is your HDD ?

It certainly updated just a few days ago, but it was just yesterday that I received that message about not enough storage, then eventually it would say it was up-to-date but when I checked the about it stated that it wasn't.

I say it was a false reading saying it was up-to-date on the about section as it would have taken much longer than only a few seconds to bring up the up-to-date box, in other words it's saying up-to-date when it hasn't actually downloaded anything.

I have XP on a small partition (18GB), and I've seen this message also. 
I only install the shields, none of the bloatware extras.

As long as I have at least 2GB free, it installs OK.
