Avast fails to update, a solution

I have recently came accross an avast update problem. I have installed avast in windows wista and after the installation i couldn’t update the program.

I kept getting a failure to connect to server error, something like a timeout. After checking about internet connectivity and firewall settings i couldn’t find the root of the problem.


Control Panel -> Add/Remove programs -> avast -> change/remove program -> and then select the repair option and click next

The avast installation will be repaired and then it updates succefully.

That’s all for now.
