Silent Updating
« on: August 05, 2004, 12:40:51 AM »
I've been looking through the settings for a way to get Avast to update the virus database silently.  I've tried everything that I know of and am unable to find the setting.  What always happens is a window pops-up in the lower right and says that it's been updated and to click here for more info.  I don't care for it to tell me that info, I just want it to keep me up-to-date.  Great program guys.  Thanks.

In this case, you'll need to edit the avast4.ini file.
SuppressUpdatedInfo=0 in the [AAVM] section is your entry.

Please see INI file reference here:;action=display;threadid=4498;start=msg32502#msg32502 for exhaustive info.
