ARGGGGGG! hELP!
« on: December 02, 2004, 04:44:34 PM »
First mine wouldn't update cause the license key was out of date. so ok, I go to the website to try to update. Finally found the place to re-register! Fine but can't put the new register key in the program. Ugh! so ok, I try to download the new version. Well of course not everyone can get DSL so it takes nearly 2 hours. I get half way done and the download just flat dissapears. Happened twice! I even tried watching it to see what was going on and of course, I turned my back for a minute and the stupid thing is gone again! It supposidly saves the program but when I open the program it has some kind of download error and will not work. I really liked the program but will just flat delete it if I can't update it! I'm not ignorant, I know some programming.  Hey, don't put a program out there that real people can't use, guys!

I take it you are using the home version.

Update license expires after 14 months (not the progam itself!). When this period is (almost) over, you need to obtain a new key.

There is no problem with putting the new key in Avast. Make sure there is no trailing space when you copy/paste from the email. And make sure your system time/date is correct.

Looks like a problem with your connection/system. Download is working fine for everybody else.

Alwil didn't do this. They created a good av util, which is very easy to use. Even for newbies.

Thanks again

Check your date/time system either.

so ok, I go to the website to try to update. Finally found the place to re-register!

Not that difficult!  :(

Why not? Did you use copy & paste method?

Ugh! so ok, I try to download the new version. Well of course not everyone can get DSL so it takes nearly 2 hours. I get half way done and the download just flat dissapears. Happened twice!

Use a download manager. If you have a dial-up, you must have a download manager. See 'Links' on my signature for some suggestions.

the stupid thing is gone again! It supposidly saves the program but when I open the program it has some kind of download error and will not work.

Download manager again...
It's not a stupid thing!

More than 2 million people are using it... in fact, the problem is not avast...
