Yes, but are our assumptions correct about the policy change, in that the avast.setup no longer gets removed after it has done the update, it will remain a permanent file in the setup folder (not being created from the setup.ovr file each time) ?

Well, sort of, we're not deleting it anymore. But it can still get overwritten at any time (that's up to the updater to decide).

This is a part of the many "optimizations" made in the 4.8 version of the updater (especially for the automatic/background updates). We try to do only the bare minimum, to minimize the CPU cycles (and disk reads/writes) needed to perform the background update.

If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

Thanks for the update vlk, although I did send you an email about this, and I wondered if you did receive it?
