About Program Update
« on: November 12, 2004, 07:24:35 PM »
Hi,

unchecking the "Ask to reboot when needed" in iAVS update details, will reboot the PC, but I want to know if exist some way to prevent the auto reboot without any user intervention?

Thanks

Yeah i was wondering the exact same thing. It would be nice for avast! to upgrade fully automatic,but it will complete the update process on next normal restart/startup without user interaction.

Adding an option to let the user choose wheather a program update should be done fully automaticly or not (eg automatic reboot without asking) shouldn't be hard to implement.

You all know the problems of delaying a boot while updating a delicate and complex application like antivirus, firewall and so on...
Common users will mess the things, updates will come over updates, temporary files left behing...  :P  :P

So, this could be possible in a future version?

It might not make any difference, of course (see how knowledgeable I am?  ;) ), but I do like to do one thing before rebooting and that's a "clean" disconnect of my dialup connection.

Intuitively it feels better than just having Win disconnect as part of its shutdown routine, even if there's no difference in the end-result at all, just the "right" buttons pushed to get there.

I think not. It's a matter of Windows boot configuration and not avast. Windows does not start programs and services in a predeterminated order...
No other antivirus could handle it so, I don't think avast must be the first one.

I'm not refering to the windows startup order, but to make a program update without user intervention and don't reboot.

Oh, I see, sorry  :-[  :-[

I think that if any setting was possble, it will be at [iAVS] section in value AskReboot. When 1 avast will ask for reboot when needed, when 0 it won't ask.
Maybe -1  ;D
