Virus definitions wont update
« on: November 02, 2020, 01:24:09 AM »
I've tried repairing the installation, rebooting  PC but my software won't update definitions.

What else can I try?

Many thanks
Ben

What virus definition is being reported if you Right click on the avast tray icon and select About Avast ?

Are you getting any other avast related messages about this ?

Can you post a screenshot of your defs sub-folder, see attached image of mine.
