If you can't update the program that way you could download the installer and try running it to update to the new version.
I always create a system backup image before making changes such as this!

While rare for me,

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.

Totally agree !

I installed the update from the GUI with Windows Firewall and MBAM Pro running and had no install problems.
Maybe UrAsish is using a different firewall, malware security programs, etc. ???
It seems any person may have issues, perhaps depending on what else they have running/installed on their PC.
I also re-boot before doing an update such as this, just to "clean things up"...

Only windows firewall and windows defender. Now even the definitions are not updating since 20-10-13. Manual update is initializing even without internet connection and stays at initialization step till system restart.
aswclear.exe is always the last option. Any other options to overcome this problem??

I have Windows Defender turned off on all my systems, but I do use MBAM Pro and feel that offers better protection...
So, I can't say if Windows Defender might cause a problem...I doubt it, but I don't know.

As you have no Internet Connection, I think that is a problem you MUST fix before you can update...
Are you posting from the PC in your screen print with no Internet connection ?
How is that possible

Windows defender never caused a problem while updating avast before.

Without internet connection avast always showed "connection terminated, retrying", but not now.

I only connect to the internet using a dial up modem.

I didn't think of dial up.
Have you tried connecting by dialing up before you attempt to do the update?

I recently ran a scan with my Avast anti virus program. Several Threats found came up in the results. There we're options to delete or isolate them. I tried both but nothing happened. How do I get rid of these viruses for good? Thanks. Hal. __________________
