avast 4.8 is a beta version only at present. 

You should be aware of possible problems with beta software and willing to accept them.  If you participate in the beta program please look for information on problems being reported and investigated in the beta forum at the top of the forum page.

If you are using a dial-up connection then there does appear to be a problem with auto-update that is being investigated by the avast team.

Please see this thread:

The antivirus is not autoupdating anymore. the previous 4.7 was very well but since i downloaded 4.8 this is not happening anymore even after 3 days. Any suggestions
Probably this should be discussed in the corresponding beta topic http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=33718.0

This is unrelated to this topic and should be in the beta sub forum.

Where you would probably have seen the I started 'Auto Update no longer working' the link previously given by Alan and psw.

Third best antivirus and considering AVK uses avast engine, it will be the among the two best ones. Indeed, big companies should be afraid ;D
