Revisited: Update failure, invalid file signature
« on: July 14, 2011, 05:16:47 AM »
Good day, all...

During an update of the virus database (update to 110711-1 with 110713-1) or the program, It fails.  Apparently this has happened twice and I just now discovered it.  Searching here, I see it's happened before in January, 2011.  It looks like it was taken care of by the avast! folks: indicating a more general issue than one individual.  That makes me wonder why I'm the only one who's reporting it...?

Please help ... and thanks in advance...!

Running on Win2K Professional, all service updates applied.

First if you haven't already done so, reboot and try a manual virus definitions update.

Report any error in full if you get one.
