    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?
