Hallo rixto, try right clicking on Avast in your start menu and then select Run as Administrator.

Then try & update, see if it works?

So still doesnt update... made a pic just in case (had to dl english pack for it because i doubt u can speak/read estonian )

Attachment 61222

Edit: just in case tried with UAC on... still nothing, just windows keeps buggin me with everything now :S
I see by your edit that it did'nt work, oh well it was just a theory

The only other option i can think of other than reinstalling Avast is to enable the built in Administrator account, this will give you full privilleges like running XP

Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable

Sorry i could'nt be of more help

Avast V4 & Rising Internet

I tried V5 and had some issues with updating and security so I put V4.8 back on and have had no issues at all. In fact over 3 years now and no issues with it. It just works, and always has. But this is with My setup, If Avast V5 works for You, then Great! Also on my wife's desktop and our laptop i have installed "Rising Internet Security Suite", which is from a company in Beiijing China, it is quite good (it has more popup requestors than most, asking for confirmation) and no issues whatsoever since install of it either. We are on the PC daily for hours a day and on my PC I get approx. 200 downloads a week without probs.

I really like the new one, especially doing the registration during install from the GUI so it's less bother than email, but...

After years installing Avast on over a hundred machines with no issues or infections, my Dad got a fake virus scan Trojan which it could not get even in Boot scan. Neither could Malwarebytes or Spybot in Safe Mode which can flush viruses hiding in Memory after reboot.

But MSE got them all out from the desktop. I may be jumping the gun, but this along with MSE's near-invisibility once installed (no voice to turn off, no need for delayed start) has got me installing MSE now.

There is one install where MSE ran up CPU with no fix found, so I reverted to Avast and got to know it's new release a bit. I really like it and have put it back on my own laptop to compare with MSE on my other computers, after turning off the "voice" and delaying start.
