Updates and autodialing
« on: October 23, 2004, 06:28:03 PM »
My PC keeps trying to dial the internet when nothing in particular is runnng. I'm fairly sure that it is Avast going for autoupdates.

I have checked the ini file and Useras is set to 1.

Is there anything else I need to do ???  I don't really want to disable autoupdates as I know my wife will never remeber to get the updates, I'll have enough trouble remebering myself ;D

Check the update (connection) settings. Make sure it is set to dial-up. If it is, it is very likely something else is trying to connect to the net. Check what is loading at boottime. Also check your firewall log.

Impossible... avast does not have a dialer and/or a connection handler.
Autoupdates of avast! only are done when you are already on-line. It searches each 40 seconds for a connection and, if succeed, wait 4 hours to the next tentative.
Only if you're on-line avast! will try to connect.

You seem to be infected with a dialer. Did you run SpyBot or Ad-aware to be sure?

Thanks guys I didn't think it was supposed to either but turning off auto update seems to fix it!!

I'm away from home for the next couple of weeks.  When I get abck I'll see if I can find anything else that may be the problem

No it's not. Again, avast does not have a dialer feature and/or a connection handler.
Could be another program or a dialer worm (virus)  :'(

Thanks again.  I'll post a hijack log once I get back to my PC which won't be until 6 Nov.  Do you want me to post it here or start a new thread?

I hope this means more to you than it does to me!!

Thanks for any help you can give.  I'm getting more than a little fed up with this and as the dial up sometimes runs when I am out of the room it is probably hitting my phone bill as well!!!

Thanks Eddy.  When I get home at the weekend I'll fix these entries and hopefully the problem will go away.
