I uninstalled Avast from my computer soon after Avast stopped receiving virus definitions updates on October 12th 2019. I can see that the issue hasn't been solved yet.

I will just keep using the other antivirus I installed on my computer. I don't care about the Avast streaming updates, and the lack of "official communication" from the Avast team is horrible!

I hope I can use Avast again when or if this issue is solved!

"Avast VPS update for versions 5 to 8" from the https://www.avast.com/en-us/download-update page is still giving me "VPS database is already up to date"

I am still stuck at 191009-4.

I've 2 not SSE2 compliant computers, so i can't use any avast program up from version 7.
Auto updates and VPS updates NEITHER have been updated from 191009-4.
I'd like to know if this is a permenent issue so i cant contract another antivirus.
If not update the auto definitions or the VPS 5-8 definitions now...

Right now, it's not supposed to be a permanent issue.
But please note that the virus definition updates for Avast versions 5 to 8 are expected to stop by the end of this year, for good.

Wrong, the latest version you can use would be 10.4 (https://forum.avast.com/index.php?msg=1322691).

Hi, is the issue with the VPS definition updates resolved now? Also, has this happened before? I've noticed it this last weekend for the first time ever with Avast. Thanx.

Whenever a computer is booted up after a prolonged time of non-use (week, month etc) the system will attempt to update all software that's installed if needed. (Anti Virus included)
This possible high energy update state can cause "slow functioning" of the OS, as well as any update process that has been initiated
Solution> Patience. :)
