Avast Home Registry error on update
« on: July 14, 2008, 08:21:54 PM »
I use Avast Home 4.8.1201 with Vista Home Basic. Since I enabled UAC every time Avast is updated a registry error message appears on my screen. The message appears veeery briefly and states something like "access denied to HK/...." and then disappears. No trace of it in the logs.
The message seems to come from Avast since it uses the same warning format that it uses for viruses (the two-line two-color text stripe), but in blue & black instead of yellow & black.
Other than that, the program seems to be working...

Anyone familiar with this?

Hi, I've also got the same message, can't find any info on it anywhere though, quite worrying...

If I remember correctly the selfdef.log has the info (sorry, I'm on Linux now).
I have UAC enabled (when in Vista) and no problems with updates recently. Although, I'm using the beta.

Indeed, the messages are there...
Hope the programmers take a look and correct it.
By the way, can you test the beta version to see if it solves this?
