Avast 4 Tries to connect to internet after bootup
« on: February 15, 2003, 07:18:23 PM »
After every bootup, Avast 4 tries to connect to the web via my dialup connection. If I switch off avast entirely, the system doesnt try. The PC is running 98SE.

Its rather annoying when you switch the PC on only to write a letter and then find it is trying to dial in.

I have tried setting the updates to manual for both program and virus's but this doesnt help.

Please can you help.

p.s thanks for providing a free service.

What version of avast! 4 do you have? There was one (on the beginning of this year) which caused this problem of some Win9x machines. Please try to update to the latest version (168) - you can use the incremental update which is built-in in avast! 4...

All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.
