[SOLVED] problem with avast version 5.1
« on: January 02, 2011, 02:25:32 PM »
today i updated avast from 5.0.677 to 5.1.677..at least thats what the "update" section says..furthermore there is a message saying that there is a new version available(5.1.864)..so i click update and then it says that its already up to date besides the fact that its not the 5.1.864..below are 2 photos explaining the problem.

thanks in advance,
george

You can try repair avast from control panel->add remove application"Or programs and features in win7" then choose avast and click change a new window will appear choose repair
