I downloaded the lastet version of avast home edition. Un-installed the old version and installed the new on. I would like to know how to answer the question in mail protection about "SMTP" and "POP3". Also can you tell me how to register my lastet version? Thanks again.

For POP and SMTP, just select the guys from the drop-down list.

For registration - you can either insert the key you used last time, or obtain a new key by filling in the form at http://www.avast.com/regist4.htm .

Hello VLK, there was no drop down list for those questions, so I put AOL for SMTP, and POP3 for the other, not sure what it is asking for. Can you expand on this so I am sure i have the right settings? Also, I registered my lastest version so I should be ok there. I'm still confused about the virus chest update, when I click on the icon for update it gives me a menu that says "direct connection" however it does nothing when i click "test connection" and after i close it, it tells me i have the latest update. on my simple interface it says it is not updated, any help will be appreciated, thank you.

Bobby, I don't think Avast's e-mail protection will work if you're using AOL. I don't think AOL uses standard e-mail servers.

If your avast is refusing to update, check to be sure you have the "program update" installed. Then, get the latest definitions.

If this still doesn't work, try reinstalling avast.

Then switch your e-mail provider. This is not fault of avast!

I did not accuse avast of being at fault, I said I was disappointed it did not work with AOL.
