Well it didn't fix the HTTPS Scanning Problem that is affecting XP and Vista users.  :(
All it did was put my Vista laptop right through the mill  >:(
My CPU was stuck at 100% for about 10 minutes. And I really didn't think the update was ever going to finish.
Still got to update my sons Windows 7 desktop yet. Not looking forward to it!

i never use it, i did normal scan & fast scan, but i haven't done any scan for a year cause i see no issues that may be malware & virus, so no idea does it work for me or not


but the new txt on protection is still there :D
Never use what ??? Https scanning allows avast to check https sites for malicious code.
Unless you've turned it off, it happens every time you visit an https website.

if it does it by default (automatically each time i open a site) then i have used it, my settings are as they were when i installed it first years ago, all shields are active & other stuff i don't know

Avast version 17.5.2303 :

No more "New" over "Privacy"  :)

Web Shield -> uncheck "Enable HTTPS scanning" still needed for most HTTPS websites  :(

My custom scans were not deleted by the update  :)

Behavior sheild still is not turned on when starting up pc. Took much longer time to install this update in the third step than before. Almost shut it down before it finished. By the way what is SMB ?

The Opera browser can be updated by going to the About Opera section and immediately checks to see if the current version used is current, similar to what Avast software checker does under the protection tab, however just recently when using the About Opera instead of saying up-to-date it brings up An error occurred while checking for updates, no solutions would help until I hit the ignore for Opera browser in Avast, and now it doesn't give the error.

Perhaps it is coincidence but could the two programs be related with this?

I use the most current browsers and software.

Thanks Bob, I know the version that's current, but I am just curious if it was the Avast updater for software that was causing the error? as now that I have removed it the error has gone.

It's active on my Avast install and as you can see, I have no problems with Opera.

We don't have the same operating systems though.

Very true. Have you tied the following:

Repair Avast:
Control Panel> Program and Features (Add/remove program)>Select Avast> Select Repair. Reboot when completed
https://www.avast.com/faq.php?article=AVKB204


If Repair doesn't fix the problem, try the following:
Clean Install of Avast:

If you need additional help with the Clean Install, watch this:

I've tried all that Bob, and my only hope is what I have come up with, if the error continues not to be present then I think it is safe to assume that it must have had some sort of significance.
