Avast Trying to Access the Internet?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I am running the free version of Avast and I have (I think) everything set
to manual. Yet,ZA is constantly asking me for permission for Avast to access
the internet. What is Avast trying to do and how do I stop it from doing so?
When I do a manual update, I understand why it connects, but the damn thing
tries to connect on its own.
Running Win98SE.
Thanks,
Buffalo
PS: I was running the free AVG on it, but it sounded likd they will not
support 98 much longer. AVG was great!

The question is, why would you NOT let Avast access the Internet ?

The other question what is the outboond location that it is trying to connect to
?

Because I don't know why it is trying to access the Internet after I checked
all I could to do updates and reports manually. Spy conscious,most likely.

I will have to reboot into Win98se to find that out. I will give you the
location when I find out.
Have a good,fun weekend.
Thanks

I checks for virus database updates every day.
No risk. All AV programs need to do that.
You CAN disable that, but why should you?

I might be in the middle of an online game or another program where I do not
want to be interrupted.
