A few quick and easy questions:

1): How will we know when the problem has been fixed via the micro update ?

2): When this type of micro update comes out will it need a full reinstall like with a major
      version change or just occur silently ?

3): Will it require a reboot to take effect ?

4): Will this result in a change of the program version number ?

1]
Try it or read the announcement from avast

2 & 3]
Micro updates (as has been explained) come with the VPS.
VPS updates do not requiere a (full) reinstall nor a reboot.

4]
No, since it is a micro update.
Only larger updates/fixes will change the version number.

Hi all,

just few answers to your interesting questions. Which were answered mostly by Eddy (thanks to you).

1] I will post here, or you can try it by yourself.
2] uUpdates and emUpdates are being distributed to our users silently. To fasten the delivery process you can run C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\AvEmUpdate.exe after the fix is announced as released
3] To make sure everything is ok reboot is recommended, sometimes required
4] Again, as Eddy said, no changes in program number
-----------------------------------------------------------

This fix is ready for internal testing, so it will be released tomorrow.

Keep it on,
B.

If I remember correctly, to run AvEmUpdate.exe, you'll need to drill down to the file location and double-click it.

Correct?

Since this tool hasn't worked for quite some time, I don't see what the hurry is to
be the first to fix it by manually running the emergency updater ???
One or two extra days for the fix to install itself certainly is the best way to handle this.
Unless you attempted to actually boot from the Recovery Media, you didn't even know that there was a problem. :)
