No, I didn't say it should be ignored but that it's most likely stemming from not just the Avast page itself but from a combination of installed apps on a particular computer. These things are very hard to track down and almost impossible to anticipate.

You should have by now been offered it, but you don't say what version of avast you are currently using ?
That also has an impact as to how you get it, through the avastUI or full download (links given above). And if you should do a clean install or not.

Just got Avast Pro. Don't know if Sandbox and SafeZone browser are really secure. I have set my settings not to keep anything in the sandbox after closure. Still, while in the Sandbox settings I have 0 MB of disk space for the Sandbox, I have all my history and cookies upon reopening Google in Sandbox. I have to manually clear all data. Is there a way to automatize that. Also, it absolutely interferes with the Sandboxie sandbox (message error pop-ups are filling my screen each time I open an Avast sandboxed program) :-[
Avast protects well!!!

This is really something you should you should talk about outside this topic as it is likely to a) promote a good number of comments and b) would divert what this topic is about a (not so new) program update.

Hi Everybody!

Sorry if my spelling isn't good. I write from Hungary and I'm a beggin er!

I know this is not the about forum!

I have a problem, but I don't find solution.

I'd like to buy an Avast IS. I download and install IS for my PC, but I can't share files and folders.

Where can I set this in Avast IS?

Thank you in advance!

PS.: If it doesn't big request, show the method on the pictures.

Thank you indeed but how many people are reporting a slowdown and loss of resources. I used MS' Process Explorer to show that it is the AVAST service that causes the slowdown. Looks like a memory leak or excessive memory useage. On Windows XP Pro SP3 and I have just tried the "slowdown patches" but not the other patches. I lean towards falling back.

I am using Windows 7. I installed Avast Free Antivirus 6.0.1203 three days ago. I am not able to update the antivirus, each time I click on update it gives me this error message "Cannot connect to server......Cannot connect to II002.avast.com (208.111.160.6:80)". I have included avast in the list of programs that firewall should allow to access the internet. I tried switching off my firewall in order to do the update but it didn't work.... I have uninstalled and reinstalled the antivirus but I still can update, am I missing something?Huh/

I really need help.

Thanx

VaporTrail,

I am another one of those XP PRO SP3 users who fell back to 6.0.1125.

So you are trying to use Sandboxie in the avast! manual sandbox? If I read that right and that's what you doing, then I don't know if that is possible. I use AIS and have Google Chrome set to always run sandboxed in AIS. I unchecked the "store data in the sandbox" and I also unchecked all of the settings to not be virtualized (cookies, history, bookmarks, extensions). The only setting that is checked is to "download a program outside of the sandbox", and I can browse all day, and at the end of the day when I run CCleaner, there is not a single Chrome entry to delete. Every time I close Chrome, everything just disappears...............I think that's what you were asking! lol
