do you use a proxy-server to go to the internet?
do you use internet explorer? - does it work? (because avast uses the IE settings)

What did you set in the Avast settings under 'Update (Connection)'?

Is your system time and date correct?
Do you use any proxy application (like annonimizers)?

what happens if you click onto that signs? (do you mean the signs in the lower right corner of your window?)

isn't there a possibility of viewing 'details' of what was wrong with the updates?

Which firewall do you use? Is avast.setup allowed to connect?

Can you try to repair your installation?
Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove programs > avast! antivirus > Remove. Then choose Repair function in the popup window (Repair).
If this does not help, can you uninstall / boot / install / boot again?

If it does not update (yet), please, post the last 200-250 lines of avast log: C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\DATA\log\Setup.log
