update problem with Avast! Free Antivirus 7.0.1426
« on: May 20, 2012, 02:43:46 AM »
I installed Avast! Free Antivirus 7.0.1426 On Windows 7 (64-Bit) And I can't update the virus database, the update hangs on "Initializing" ... Is there some kind of fix I can use?

Please, upload (attach) the avast log:
<avast folder>\Setup\setup.log

If the file is too big for the forum, post the last 400-500 lines of it.

I hope those lines are enough... the file was too big

BTW ... while I was reading your reply... the program updated automaticly (I got the pop up message) .... but I think the problem is still there... because I tried avast free before... even when it was up to date, it shouldn't hang when I try to manually update..

Try to set your proxy to "No proxy" instead of "Automatic detect" on the update tab of settings.

Well, it could be a temporary glitch on connection from your side to the update servers.
But the update process is working ok in your computer now.

I had been using Avast! Free Antivirus 7.0.1426 On Windows Vista and I can't update the virus database and program, the update hangs on "Initializing" or showed the error.

AvastUI
Unspecified error

I am not good with computers so do not understand the avast log.

"Please, upload (attach) the avast log:
<avast folder>\Setup\setup.log
If the file is too big for the forum, post the last 400-500 lines of it"

I tried to uninstall or re-install the avast 7 but unable to do so.
 
Is there something I can do?

1. Download avast! Free Antivirus: http://files.avast.com/iavs5x/avast_free_antivirus_setup.exe
2. Follow instructions: http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility (Run this tool for all prior installed avast! versions..!!)
3. Reinstall avast! with the downloaded installer from point 1.
4. Reboot.

Dear iroc9555

Thanks, you were right!

I change my proxy using V.P.N. and updated my prog.

Thank you again!

You are welcome.
