Noghing is wrong with your version - there is just one newer on the web  ;).

You can either wait till it is detected by your avast! automatically (could last max. 7 days) or get it via manual update...

All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no attention to criticism.

Pavel, are you saying that the default time for checking a program update will be 7 days? Can't it be less than this, I mean, automatically thruough the avast4.ini file?

No, it can't  ;).
It used to be 12 hours but is set to 7 days now. Of course - this is the MAXIMUM time - in average, it is 3.5 days - and it is set in this way to lower the requests on our download servers.

For example: If you get the size of the last update (4.1 -> 4.5) and multiply it by the number of active users, you will get nearly 10 TB of downloads - quite impressive number  ;D !

You can of course update immediately = manually.

What about introduction of PUSH system for all avast! editions? I know this is Pro only feature,but you might save more with this update system (less unnecessary checking),and you can also queue users so they don't download at same time,but in queue style,so they never exceed certain amount of bandwidth (bandwidth in term of DL speed).
Less server load,faster updating response,everyone happy ;)
Just a thought...

it is I, "The Nut" that started this thread.

I am a happy camper today...there I was working on my computer and up popped my audible message telling me that  my "Virus Database has been updated".  ;D

Answers two questions for me....Auto updates is working fine and so are my .wav files.

Awesome!  ;)

(edit) Just for the record: Build 4.5.523 and 044-0.....11/15/04   :)

I'd like your suggestion. Anyway, since from earlier versions, this is only a Pro feature.
