Avast 5.1.864 wont update [RESOLVED]
« on: January 11, 2011, 08:03:22 PM »
I'd running windows 7 with COMODO firewall, when i try to update the software and virus definitions nothing happens, it just stays on the Initializing, Please Wait... and nothing happens, i have waited about 5 hours and finally gave up, I've let it through the firewall but still nothing, can anyone help?

Does it work if you remove/uninstall the firewall ?

When i disable the firewall it works fine, i have allowed it, I've treble checked, but it still doesnt work when the firewall is active.

I know that this is not an avast! problem.
But try this... remove actual version and install the last one (Pre-Release) and see if the problem solves in that way. http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=69152.0
