Help with program update.
« on: July 24, 2008, 04:18:26 AM »
I have 4.8 home edition and I'm unable to "Program Update" manually (via right-clicking on the tray icon).  I get a "parameter is not correct" error message.

Any help is much appreciated.  Oh yeah, I'm on Vista home premium.  Thanks!

Hi...

First, try performing a repair installation in the control Panel under "Programs and Features." If this doesn't help try uninstalling the copy you are now using and then download and install the new version.

I have no idea as to what is causing your particular issue, though. ???

Best Regards...

I suggest an installation from the scratch:

1. Uninstall avast from Control Panel first.
2. Boot.
3. Download the latest version of Avast Uninstall and use it for complete uninstallation.
4. Boot.
5. Install again the latest avast! version.
6. Boot.
7. Check and post the results.

I uninstalled and rebooted and used the Avast Uninstall as suggested.  In installed the latest Avast version and it appears to work fine.

I'll have to wait until there's another program update to see if I run into the same problem.  But it does check for program updates okay, informing me I have the latest version.

Thanks for everyone's help.
