Avast 6 : Autoupdate delay on system startup
« on: March 02, 2011, 07:38:12 PM »
In Avast 5 there used to be [InetWD] section with AlwaysConnectedWaitSeconds option in Avast5.ini file, but it is no more in version 6. So how to delay auto-update on system start up in version 6?

The [InetWD] section is still there, see image.

How do you connect to the internet as the AlwaysConnectedWaitSeconds parameter you mention is for broadband/cable, etc. and should still work, but you need to add the line AlwaysConnectedWaitSeconds=180 this gives a delay of 3 minutes.

You need to edit using note pad and acknowledge the change when the self-defence module asks.
