[Solved] avast is NOT updating automatically
« on: May 27, 2010, 10:41:05 PM »
What is going on?
First I notice that the virus definitions were 5 days old  :o
Now I notice that the last update attempt was in this morning?
What is going on?  :(

C'mon!
avast is "restoring" the 22th of May database? ???
Is there some GUI problem?

It won't update automatically or manually.

This is what I got one time but it had a different address the previous time:

Last encountered error: Other HTTP error (404), while trying 174.133.198.138:80//iavs5x/servers.def

avast is updating automatically in my machine.

I had one automatic update one minute ago.  ::)

maybe the problem is in the update interval of 15 minutes  :-\

I have the VPS 100529-1

I have changed to 30 minutes.
But if it is so short, avast should block "one" update, not all of them...

You're Right.  ::)

If you use the default settings on updates settings you have this problem?

Have you tried?

The default Update, Proxy setting is Auto detect (use the IE settings), so change to No proxy if you don't already have that set and don't use a proxy.
