Version 4.5.523 is now released
« on: November 15, 2004, 02:45:16 AM »
It solves most (if not all) of the issues discussed here so far:

- fixed smtp/pop transparent mail scanning in conjunction with ZoneAlarm
- updated avast installations now listen on the same ports as they did in 4.1 (that is, 25/110/143 instead of 12025/12110/12143 as in 4.5.418)
- fixed random crashes in aswTdi.sys
- fixed compatibility problems with Windows NT4

and a couple of other minor things.


I hope this build will be useful :)

Now let's have some sleep - it's almost 3am here ;D

Cheers
Vlk

Vlk, you are the man! I seriously know of no other AV provider that has the standards that Avast boasts!

I told you few months ago...

THERE IS NO ANTIVIRUS like avast!

There is no software house like ALWIL SOFTWARE !!!


And I really mean it...

Great work Vlk and all Alwil members. Thumbs up !

Vlk, to test the new build, I imaged back to before I installed Avast 4.5. I let Avast update itself to 4.5 , and e-mail scanning with Zone alarm active works right out of the box!!

Thanks!

well, I had a minor glitch again...

it updated, I rebooted, then when I checked the on-access protection control menu, it showed once again that on internet mail that it was waiting for a sub system to start. so I shut my computer down for about 10 minutes, and now it is working fine.
when it was updating, once again ZA free and Prevx gave me warnings and I had to allow...

I wonder if it's ZA and Prevx or that I just needed to shut down again? Wouldn't the reboot have taken care of it?

There is no need to remove Avast if there is a newer version. Updating will take care of it. And you can ofcourse download the latest version from the renewed website.

A. Jones, if your OS is like mine, it is already updated and all you need to do is answer "Allow" to your firewall (mine is free ZA) and reboot . :)

Nice!   :)

Well, it looks like you didn't wait for an answer!

 :'( Looks like I am the unlucky one. I deleted the old one, installed the old version, rebooted, updated to 4.5.523, rebooted, started OK, BUt not able to start still the same error

Scan completed with error

87 = Parameter incorrrect

and AVAST !: the AAVM detected the RPC error.

Beats me.

Should i remove this and download from the download site again.

Thanks All,
Alan
