Will be fixed in about 5 minutes.

BTW no need for more "me too" messages, really.

Thank you

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.

Thats not the point when they said it would of been fixed after a 15 to 20 mins over a hour ago so this should be been fix avast is used by so many people after AVG Free went down the bad road so if people are having a cow they have a right to don't tell peopel to chill.

The point is: you want a quick, maybe faulty fix or a tested and secure one? I surely opt for the latter.

In any case, all should be good now.

Thanks for your patience.

Tried to update the engine and virus definitions just now and got:

Last encountered error: Other HTTP errror (403) while trying 85.17.26.174:80//iav5x/servers.def

and

Last encountered error: Other HTTP errror (403) while trying 208.43.71.154:80//iav5x/servers.def

Hope this helps, clue-wise.

It wasn't an hour ago, Vlk's post was about 40 mins ago, which granted is a bit longer than the time he stated, is not an hour

This doesn't stop avast from working in any way, it still functions. The only thing is that the defs will be a day old, and some control panel functions of avast wont work either (they also produce a 403)

Well, they had to correct a bug in the Virus-db... so Avast was not working correctly 100% (problem with blocking localhost on NS)...  8)
