Using 4.5.512,home/ (vps0446-2) windows xp/sp2/ sygate firewall
When I click to install it runs for a few seconds then a small window comes up saying Package broken.

Most probably it's your firewall which is blocking avast to update.
Right now, 4.5.514 and 0446-2.
So you should allow the 'new' avast version to connect.

Hello Technical,
   I just tried update again with firewall set to allow all with same result.
You may remember my posts yesterday at the start of which you responded,
regarding problems installing 4.5 beta. Later Igor helped and got it running.
I think probably it was me at fault.
In these cicumstances would it be better if I reinstalled 4.1 (I have this on disk) and then allow the update to 4.5 when the release version is out.
I know it is expected at the weekend.
        Thanks for responding.

Get the avast uninstall utility from Alwil and use it. Reboot then re-install avast! 4.1 reboot. Update and you'll prob. have to update one more time. At that point, you can either try to install 4.5 beta again or wait till Sat. when the Official 4.5 version is released. Hope that helps.
Check the link in my signature for the  avast! uninstall program.

Thanks bob 3160,

Sorry if my post was in the wrong place I couldn't see what I thought was a better one.

Hi bob3160,
                  I have removed avast 4.5 with the utility, rebooted and updated.
I now have 4.1.501 with VPS 0446-2.
I have scanned and tested email and all seems ok.
I did see that during install that an error showed I believe it was 404.
Hope it will be ok.re.that error.
I have decided to wait until Saturday for the release version of 4.5.
If you have any comments re. the error I would be interested to know.
    Many thanks for your help,
    Best Wishes.    Mal

Cool. It won't harm to wait.
But it will be better if you learn how to set your 4.5 version.
Version 4.5 uses a new mail detection that will work automatically.
You should set up your email account just as avast does not exists.
It will detect the pop3/smpt/imap ports and scan your messages.

I'm glad avast! is working again. If your e-mail is now being scanned properly, avast! will automatically make all changes back to the original ISP settings when the conversion occurs.
The 404 error you mentioned sounds like something you experienced while on the INTERNET. I don't think it has anything to do with avast!.
