My pc did an automatic Avast update yesterday afternoon - so it is working OK I assume.

Just tried mine, and yep, after about 2-3 seconds it returns an error 43 code.
It updates "engines and definitions" but not "program"
Whoops, just tried again, and it worked! Took several go's though.

Thank goodness for that Frank - thought it was me. Their website is not working properly either. Just have to wait for them to sort it out I suppose.
Thanks for trying it.

Hi murbisa,
Looking good at the moment..........just updated from 5.? to 6.0.10091 and latest definitions.
