I did a clean install and now the status is CONNECTED. However, when I try to re-register I get something to the effect "Not found CASTGC cookie"?

Also, I had about 4 files in the VIRUS CHEST before re-installing. I am doing a full scan and would expect these same files are found (again) and put in the chest?

avast! Account is NOT required for Cloud features to operate. The cookie thing is a known bug and is apparently related to the server not working as expected. I'm sure they'll solve it quickly.

All of the sudden, status back to CONNECTION NOT ESTABLISHED.  I guess I simply won't have this new streaming feature unless someone from AVAST can help me dig further.

Same thing for me - Connection NOT Established, after about 1 hr with the updated software.

FYI: My path is also C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast5
- and the _stream folder mentioned in this thread is not there.

I run Vista Business SP2

Easy... The infraestruture is being corrected and increased.
Everyone is working on it ;)
While this, the normal updates are protecting you (as in version 6).

Ok, but how about "Connection Not Established"? Does this have to do with the infrastructure as well? Or do you have any other suggestion?

make sure avast isn't blocked by firewall (comodo like / router).

For me it's not. As my earlier posts said, after I did clean install it was working for a while, then just stopped. I only use the built-in XP SP3 firewall. All other internet stuff works fine as does the regular virus updates.

On the UPDATE page in the AVAST UI where the streaming status is, it says "Streaming Updates: ENABLED" but under Connection "Connection: Connection not established". Is this correct for the connection status--will streaming updates work?
I have the same problem,just the same

Actually I have this problem too in all my installations (7 computers in 7 different places).
So I thought that it was normal to have it enable and never have logged any update information by the stream...
