Clear your browser cache and do a manual VPS update, I have just done that and it brought in VPS version 181113-13.

Thank you David for the response and update.. I have quite a few unhappy users right now, so you can appreciate the severity of it all.

You're welcome, you don't say if your or your customers have done a manual VPS update rather than wait for the next time the program actually checks for one.

Previously the VPS Update used to have a setting to change the delay between update checks, it used to be 4 hours which could be reduced to every 2 hours.  I can't find that setting now, I don't know if that is because the streaming updates happen very frequently.

Thank you! It worked for the most part though downloads take forever when Avast is enabled it seems. Had to reinstall iTunes and it was taking an hour. Canceled that download, and it took a couple minutes. Hope there's a fix soon! Thank you to all the programmers there for all the hard work trying to fix the issues and fixing the primary issue. Things happen, programs have or cause errors, but it seems to always get fixed, and it's probably not an easy task so thank you all for your hard work, and hope everyone is having a wonderful evening!

It is still there in (paid) AIS.

Just another straw to try and break the camels back or death by a thousand cuts.  I rather think those in marketing have lost the plot if they think that will convert free users to paid. 

All they need to do is manually update each time they open their system for activity.  For me it isn't an issue as I'm happy enough with the streaming updates, however they can't deliver any engine updates, etc. etc.

That said your image is of the Program Update settings when done will also check for VPS Updates.

Rebooting your system and connected to Internet with Avast installed will cause an automatic VPS update in my experience.

See attached below.

Those setting are still available in the Free version.

I personally don't think you need to check every 5 min. but, to each their own.
I'm setting mine back to 120 min. :)

Ah, looking in the wrong darn place, Looking in both the Virus Definitions and Program Update settings.
