Will it be automaticly fixed with a vps update ?

Greetz, Red.

I'd say either the emergency update feature or VPS as you said.

This issue should never have happened in the first place.

This happened back in 2010 and the issue was fixed and now its back again, i guess bugs happen and we can just inform avast and they fix it :) its like this with pretty much ever software, am glad its been fixed.

Hi, some difficulties appeared.
We are on it, will keep you informed.
 
Sorry for troubles,
B.

Endt Take ur time dont feel rushed because some people woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Those guys giving avast a hard time chill, nearly every software has some form of bugs. Everything cant be perfect, we are all human. If your going to give avast a hard time go build ur own perfect antivirus and use it. The avast team are doing there upmost best to fix the issue chill and wait, its not like its the end of the word.

To put things in perspective : Definitely not everyone is suffering from this bug.
Me neither, and so far none of the people I help.

To manually update to VPS 160908-2 : Avast - Settings - Update - Virus Definitions - Update - OK.

Is the fix for Virus Definitions or Program?
My definitions updated today at 1:09 Pm PST to 160908-2
My Program says it is up to date with the 8/19 update.

Thanks!

VPS updates contains virus definitions - and/or small program updates.

Thank you very much Endt and Avast team.
Now it seems that the Avast service does not quit on its own time anymore.
Very good service, and communication, thank you.

My Avast Pro wont start up, won't turn on, even after repair and reinstall it has switched off and won't turn on and won't update. I have tried everything I can think of and this is an issue that seems to have no permanent fix. I am wasting huge amounts of my time trying to resolve it when this should never be of concern. I payed for something I can't get.

Do you have any other security app running alongside with Avast? (firewall, another antimalware...?).
Is your computer virus free?

Anyway, I suggest an installation from scratch:

1. Download the latest version of Avast Uninstall Utility and save it.
2. Download the latest Avast version and save it.
3. (Optional) If you want, save your Avast settings for later restoration (Settings > Maintenance > Back up).
4. Uninstall Avast from Control Panel (if possible) and reboot.
5. Run the Avast Uninstall Utility saved on 1 in and follow the instructions. Reboot Windows in Safe Mode, uninstall Avast and then reboot in Normal Mode again.
6. Install Avast using the setup saved on 2. Register your free copy or add the license key for the paid versions. Boot.
7. Check and post the results.

Please, be patient, boot when it's said to boot...
The best things in life are free.
