Updated FREE from 5.0.462 > 5.0.507 --- it seems to work o.k..
First scan well done, status bar in % was correct.

Thanks Alwill!  :D

Just upgraded to the latest v 5.0.507 from v 5.0.462 from "Update Program" and everything went smoothly. Thanks Alwil team. Job well done.

Did you read the previous posts? There is overload in the servers

There is NOT a single post before ours (romanom and Diazruanova) that states that the servers are overloaded, so where did you get the quoted info?


Then you need glasses. Read the LOGOS post in first page

it's just like that...to avoid overloading the servers. If everybody was warned at the same time, ie immediately after a new version was available, nobody could get it. From what I read it takes about a week or so until all Avast users get the message. It's just technically impossible to proceed differently due to the amount of users, and Avast isn't Microsoft ;) (note that Windows Update servers are damned slow ;D ...fortunately it's never more than a few megs a week )







Maybe I need glasses, but you need understanding lessons for sure:  the sentence you are referring to, does NOT say in any way, shape or form, that there is ACTUALLY  an overload problem, Logos is just explaining how is avast supposedly avoiding the overload in the first place, but guess what, I already updated successfully, so please do not bother to reply to this post.

I cant update from 504 to 507 either, It says package broken and ive tried a repair and tried again but still no luck.

I'm in the same boat.  Windows 7 x64, AIS 5.0.504 and virus definition or 100413-1.  Both virus definition and program update shows "package is broken" when updating.  I've repaired, but to no avail.

Updated OS from xp home to xp pro and installed avast 5. While the program does its job I have no notification sounds.  avast antivirus is not even listed in the program events list.
I know this is probably the wrong place to post the rest of this but I am going to anyways.
I have checked the sounds are enabled within the avast program and that the sound files are physically on my hd. have uninstalled and reinstalled and still nothing..... any  ideas?

@ jimeeb

Can you access the avastUI and is everything else okay other than sounds?
I'm not sure what is programs event list.

perhaps avast sounds ruled off by somewhere else - firewall or Control Panel in Windows or Audio program
