Automatic updates and VRDB generation ok
« on: October 08, 2007, 04:03:06 AM »
We generally post about problems.
I just want to share the automatic updates of avast and VRDB are running perfectly  8)
From time to time maybe it's good to receive a positive feed back  :)

No problems here either, what is strange is I appear to have more frequent, rather more VPS Updates.

Being on dial-up have my updates set to ask, also being on dial-up each time I connect avast checks for updates, so this would appear to effectively bypass the update every 240 minutes as I'm never on-line for that long. So you will see from my image I don't have so many gaps in the incremental VPS update, e.g 775-0 to say 775-4 but have 775-0, -1, -2, -3, -4, etc.

So for me it is a more frequent incremental update which suits me being on dial-up it is a smaller/quicker update.

In avast4.ini file you can set the delay time. The default are 21 days. You can drop it, but besides the resources used you could lose clean versions of the executable files info in the VRDB, adding 'bad' info over the other 2 stored before. 7 days is more than enough...
