Avast update problem

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Martin R. Howell, Dec 25, 2004.

  1. Avast has recently (within the past month or so) been producing a red box
    in the lower right hand corner of my monitor soon after start up telling me
    that a problem has been encountered while attempting to update. "Click
    here for more information," opens another window which names the site which
    it could not connect to for an update.

    Anyone know how to remedy this?

    Are you using a proxy? Because Avast does not like proxies at all. Now, it
    could also be your firewall. Try dealing with both.
