Thanks Vlk
It even fixed the System Restore problem. ;D

Well, can't say that in general. My wife's PC still has exactly the same issue... are we gonna forget about that problem now, just because everybody is happy except one users... one = no one ? Well, I'm not sure about that...

But it would be great if we see that someone is still trying to find a fix for that problem on every and each computer...

Sasha, we won't give up  ;D

What I did:
1) Update to 4.5.542
2) Boot
3) Open System Restore
4) Click on 'ok' and not on 'apply'

it worked for me... Did you do anything different?

Ok, might of found a problem.

Avast P2P shield doesn't seem to be scanning my music downloads, it seems to scan winmx itself on opening, but not song downloads (stays on C:\Program Files\WinMX\index.dat), if tried with two songs and had the same result, from begging to end nothing happens, i first noticed it when the little avast "A" icon wasn't spinning away in the task bar, winmx is deffinatly checked in the customization box, and the sensitivity bar is on high.

EDIT: OK just done another test, i noticed that just after the file is downloaded from winmx Avast scans "C:\Program Files\WinMX\library.dat", could this be it scanning the song, i thought it was suppost to say the song it scanned in the P2P shield? (i download to my desktop btw).
Also same happens with or without my firewall open or closed, (ZoneAlarm FREE version:5.5.062.000).

Windows XP Home SP2
Avast 4.5.542
Winmx 3.53

My avast will not update from 4.5.523 to 4.5.42.  Program update set ask when update is available.  I did get a virus data base update this morning and that's all...Manual Update doesn't work. Restarted PC twice still no notice of any program updates, manual update still will not get the new version.

What do you mean, manual update will not get the new version? It says up-to-date? Or what message do you get?

Thx.

Hi VLK,
Program update set Ask when update is available.  When I click "Update now" nothing happens at all, no messages show, and Avast doesn't update.

Check if the "avast.setup" process is running (task manager). If so, kill it and try again.

The fact that you have it set to "ask when available" and it is still not asking is normal because there's a random delay (of 0-7 days) to distribute the server load evenly).

Thanks

Just checked and "avast.setup" was not running.  I reset Avast to Automatic on program update.  Restarted PC, no update happened, opened Update window, clicked "Update now" and it didn't update.
Avast.setup isn't running, and it's not blocked by firewall.

What about Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs -> avast antivirus -> Change/Remove -> Update ?

I will try that.  If it doesn't work I'll leave it alone for a while to see if I'm the only one who is having the problem. If it does work I'll post back.
