Re: invalid file signature: setup will terminate

Hello all. Just to add my two ha'p'th:
Win7  64Bit  (Er... I notice that the time is shown here an hour out - advanced - 'though we're in GMT in UK)
Pop-up told me about half an hour ago that my Virus Definitions were out of date.
Bit strange; on Auto and Streaming.
Opened interface, clicked on update, received message as per OP
THEN noticed that it was the PROGRAM that was registered as out of date, (Which I have set to Notify Me).
Rebooted. Ran Update. Same result.
This is merely Public Opinion, you understand.  : )

Experience the same after def. 151228-2.
Seems the culprit is with Users\polonus\App Data\Roaming\AVAST software\Avast\remotecache.zip unknown classification
Can someone confirm this? Could be with the update server. The manual upload from here: https://www.avast.com/download-update  worked as a charm.

Seems like a server problem. I have no problem but also receive updates from a different server than you.

As i said, seems to be server dependent.

One of the servers is broken.

@ Uncle Bud,
You know what they say about assuming..... :)

Bob... can you simply back off me for one post.  Seriously... its been years since my last encounter with you and you just have to try and start sh!t.  Do you think I might just know a thing or two... I have been on the internet since 1992 in the USMC before most of you even knew what the @ symbol was.

I know what they say about being a troll.  I also know what they say about an educated guess.  If I were on the Avast team, this would be a helpful place to look into that perhaps I didn't consider.  Being helpful is not a bad thing.

I think the issue is solved already, is it not?

Well Kaspersky also had such a problem and they had a batch file to delete a folder. Like in the Kaspersky case
Code: [Select]
set deldir=C:\xxx\yyy\zzz
/////first line to be modified////////////////
for /F "Tokens=*" %%i IN ('Dir /AD /B "%DELDIR%"') DO RD /Q /S "%DELDIR%\%%i"
del /F /S /Q "%DELDIR%\*.
They had the problem thrice in 40 days. Good, Vlk now reports all is back to normal.
