Latest version is 4.6 - have you tried updating the program????
It's just telling you what the last error it encountered was, even if there
was no error you'd get a similar message after an update (well, I do
anyway).. The "Vps: Updated" and "(last version: 0509-6, Update-version:
0510-0)" also seems to indicate that the update was successful.
Nope, well not that I've taken any notice of anyway. All I care about is
that the update worked....
Maybe there are no virus's to find? Maybe they are false-positives?
Malware isn't necessarily a virus anyway.....
Sounds strange that you are getting 'lots of malware' by mail.......... Try
running Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D - they will detect and remove the malware
that AV programs just aren't designed to detect or stop....

Doing it right now! :-)
So why don't I get the message the next time I update?
That was exactly my question: Did it work or not. :-)
So why AVG does?
AVG is one of the best scanners around.
But AVG does. But like almost any other scanner it makes my 333MHz
Celeron-PC unusable :-(. And its not free.
Re: avast questions
You're kidding, right??
On 3 PC's here AVG kept detecting one virus that it never could remove, then
I put Avast on and it solved that problem AND found another 2 virus's that
AVG had been missing!
On a friends PC he was having lots of problems and couldn't understand why
as he had up-to-date AVG on there, then he tried Avast which got rid of the
virus's it found and that AVG had missed totally, no he has no problems.
And that is before I even start talking about the other problems AVG is
No scanner is ever 100% perfect, impossible to do, and AVG has always been a
favourite of mine, right up until I found something better - Avast. Don't
discount the possibility that AVG is wrong until you have proven it right
with something else also known to be good....
