Well that is one option, personally I would revert to the default settings of both the options unchecked as if it is anything like the setting for dial-up failing to auto update as I found and many others, that could well be the cause.

Thanks David,

I am going to go ahead and uncheck it than.  I just checked and it said 5 minutes ago that it tried to update, but still get the unsuccessful pop-up message.  It is 1:30 am in the States (CST)  If I don't get an auto notice by say, Wednesday, I may need to reinstall Avast 5.

I just think there is something wrong with the servers, because there are many people on the forums with the same fail to update issue and most of them started about three days ago, same as me.

Update,

I am actually going to recheck that "Always connected to the Internet" thing.  I remembred it worked better for me with it checked than without it.  I rebooted too.  I actually sent Vlk an e-mail giving him my ISP/server info.  I think there might be some server issues.

It might be an intermittent server problem. My mom's computer with XP SP3 automatically updated okay yesterday morning (100306-0), but not later in the afternoon. Mine did though and I got 100306-1. I haven't been able to get it on hers even manually. It connects and checks but it says I already have the latest one. I don't know what gives but I'm gonna give it a little more time. Sometimes these things have a way of clearing up on their own. Hopefully that's the case here. :)

Exactly,

I am going to do the same thing and just ride this out.  I really don't want to uninstall and reinstall i this is a server problem. Because if it is, obviously a reinstall won't do anything.

Right-clicked on "Show Last Pop Up Message" and it's shows the last auto update worked!

Note settings for anyone else who may still be having problems:


  • OS: Windows XP (SP-3)
    Wireless Internet Connection: (NetGear Modem)
    Avast Settings: "My Computer is Permanently Connected to the Internet": Checked
    Proxy Settings: "No Proxy";Direct Connection. selected
    Using regular built-in Windows XP Firewall.
