dranhier,

Yes, there is a way to force the VRDB update but you need to modify the ini file.
Go into the Avast folder...Avast4....Data....
Look for the Configuration file (.ini).  See if there is a section labeled [VRDB]. If there is, add this line below it:  RunInterval=5
 If not, add [VRDB] after the last line in the file.
Then, add this line below it:  RunInterval=5

The new section should look like this:
[VRDB]
RunInterval=5

Note:  Default between generating VRDG is 3 weeks, but the
RunInterval line changes it to whatever you put AFTER the = in minutes.  In the case above, I had you set it to generate a VRDB, 5 minutes after you save the file.  
This is how you force the update.  After the VRDB finishes, don't forget to go back and change it to whatever you want.
I have mine set for 10080 which represents 7 days (60 x 24 x 7).

Easy huh!
As for the icon that does not rotate.....
Force the update and see if it rotates, if not....
You will need to reinstall Avast 4 like I did unless one of the Moderators has a new idea.

Good Luck

Well, I was aware of this method. An yes, for may people this is quite easy.

But as I was recommending avast! 4 to a person more or less computer-illiterate (running under a restricted user account and not allowed to edit any such files) I explicitly asked for a method not involving ini file editing.

Thanks for your answer anywa.
