Avast not updating automatically on Vista
Hello,
I'm using Vista Home Basic.
Avast 4.8 FREE
I have it set to do an signature file update automatically.
However, it never does an update automatically.
If I run it manually, it works fine.
Any ideas?
No errors in the event viewer.

Hi,

Mine updates automatically - I set the program to update automatically
too.

Have you looked in the Updates (connections ) window ? I leave both of
those unchecked.

RE: Avast not updating automatically on Vista
I've never had any problems with Avast free.
Uninstall it, then reinstall it.
It is compatible with vista 32bit and 64bit.

Re: Avast not updating automatically on Vista

i had avast for a while and it worked fine.. i'd recommend NOD32
it's pretty lean, and efficient. Kapersky is a beast on the resources
if that's a concern you're having.

Re: Avast not updating automatically on Vista

I have the same problem with the avast update. I am running vista home
premium - 64 bit version. I also have the same problem with automatic
updates from Taxcut. I suspect there is something in vista security or
networking causing the problem,probably unique to the 64 bit version.
Anyone have any ideas?

What version are you using? According the official website you must use
version 4.7.892 or above on Windows Vista.
