Update question/issue
« on: October 11, 2009, 05:40:48 PM »
hallo,

at first take a look at the screenshot, my question is related to it.
When I turned the pc on today I got automatic update (9:30h), this is OK. Looking on the protocol it conformed this.
My settings is to update every 240min=4hours. It means that the next update should be at about 13:30h. But in the protocol there is no such entry ???
Taking a look on the small configuration settings there is a text said that the last update was on 13:57h  ??? What dopes this mean?
Below is written that a new version is avaible - new version of what???

so, why the entry in the protocol doesnt match the last update time? Why there wasnt update after 4 hours=240min as set up?

Does this ussue has something common with Windows Firewall in Windows XP because today I turned the firewall on? But there wasnt any notification about this... I still dont want to try manuall update, because I wait for the next 4hours update interval in about 30min.

Do you have any ideas?

probably a new programm version, latest is 4.8-1356

It will check for new defs every 240 min, but that does not mean that there are any new defs every 240 min
so the log shows when it found and downloaded new defs, not when it was checking ( i think, correct me if i am wrong)

Here you can se the updates

virus def http://www.avast.com/eng/vps_history.html

Virus def is automatic, but program updates is a warning, (defult settings)  but you can sett it to automatic if you want

See page 37 in user guide

There is logic, it saves those on dial up for example, and allows them to best choose when to update for existance. A program update is particularly big...
You should have seen a green sliding box telling you to update
Looks like this:

Right click avast! tray icon --> click about avast!
You should be able to see what version you have.

Please make an manual virus defi update and check if it will be installed something?

This is the most recent version. The entry in the log viewer is just the reference to the notice that you would see.

The update check, is merely that, if there is not a new version, then there will be nothing to download.

PLEASE do an vir.def. update and tell me if there are new definitions!
