Avast Premier won't update
« on: December 16, 2017, 11:33:34 PM »
For a long time now my Avast Premier will not update or connect to my account.
I uninstalled it reinstalled it.
Still broke.
I'm disgusted with it.
See some pictures---









As long as I can update the virus definitions at Techspot I will use Premier until my subscription expires.
Then I will uninstall Avast & find something better.
Something that works like it is supposed to work.

64 Bit OS Windows 8.1 Pro
SP ?
No other AVs.
I can't remember. I've used Avast for a long time.
It used to work good.
I have this version---


Would it do me any good to install this version---

I did as you suggested.
It did not help.
I'm glad I had a macrium image to fall back on.

If anyone asks me about Avast I will tell them not to waste their money on such a shoddy product.
Bye-bye. >:(

Making a sticky thread would probably be good for this issue. :)

Thank you.
