Windows 7: Latest version of Avast Antivirus

22 Oct 2013   #731

Win 7 Pro x64 SP1, Win 7 Ult x86 SP1
 
 

I downloaded the Avast 9 files before I attempted updating so I had them just in case...
This screen print shows the file size, in case that info might help you before you download via dialup.

Latest version of Avast Antivirus-afssp01.png

Have you attempted downloading these files and updating using the installer?

x64 (6.3.9600) Win8.1 Pro & soon dual boot x64 (6.1.7601) Win7_SP1 HomePrem
 
 

A few suggestions:
  • Fix current install: Try Control Panel -> Programs and Features -> avast -> repair
  • Update to new version:
  • I'm waiting until avast provides the next program update to version 9.
    • Do you have a Wifi adapter?
      Is there Wifi near you? Coffee shop, Restauraunt, Library?

You could always use the avast removal tool as well.

avast! Uninstall Utility | Download aswClear for avast! Removal

Run it in safe mode and it will remove avast completely. Then download a fresh copy of the new version and install.

Yeah, only that option was left. Used aswclear and then installed new version and updated. Working fine till now.

@DavidW7ncus Unable to update using installer. Had to Uninstall 8.1500.
