Please open the file <avast>\setup\setup.ini, and in the [Parts] section, change the line that says

part.vps=vps-42403

to e.g.

part.vps=vps-42402


Then reinvoke the VPS update.

Thanks

Typically it's in

C:\Program Files\ALWIL Software\avast4\setup

It's called setup.ini -- if you double-click it, it will open in Notepad.
