Problem with updating Avast Virus Definitions.
« on: April 20, 2011, 12:21:44 PM »
I keep getting an error 403, I've tried it on two different computers and get the error both times, is something down or are other users experiencing this?

Definitions version: 110419-1
Program version: 6.0.1091

Ah...that explains it...did the manual update (vpsupd.exe) before seeing this. Oddly though, I was bounced around with the 403 error, I still got a download prompt.

I'm not sure if it helps the team, but I also got a popup stating there was a problem with an update and I tried turning off the computer, waiting three minutes (old thinking, I know) and then got the same thing. So I'm just adding a "Me Too" here just in case that is of any help and I want to see what my time setting is on this site so I can see how long ago y'all were posting the "Me Too" messages.

EDIT: Timestamps put me with y'all. Heh, what kind of beverage do we serve at a "Me Too" party!!? ;D

Of course they are. These folks are all over this. Have a beverage, chill out, and soon your Avast will be purrrrring like a kitten again. A cute, cuddly Avast kitten.
