Avast! released an update to their program yesterday (version 4.7.871), and now my firewall keeps bugging me with rules that it cannot remember (avast.setup). Every time the program launches the updater or I launch it manually, I have to click 8-10 times for rules. Over and over again.
I know that Sygate, which I had before, had problems with the Avast! updater as well, but they finally fixed it.
Can I expect a fix for this soon ? I have version 126.96.36.199 (CPF).
I also got that. But, I don’t think it was CPFs fault. As Avast performed the update it changed avast.setup several times, it performed the update in a modular fashion. Thus, CPF was correct in its warnings, avast.setup was changing.
Yep, I thought about a reinstall, but would rather not. If I need to uninstall/reinstall CPF every time Avast! updates their program, it will drive me nuts. I also realise that Avast! isn’t the easiest program to manage, from a firewall perspective.
Oh well… I’ll keep an eye on this discussion for a little while, and then I’ll decide what I need to do. I am keeping Avast! though.
I’m new to this, so could you tell me if I need to get the Beta ? Or wait for the next official update ? I’d rather stay with official versions, and just redo what I did with Avast! if needed, until the next release rolls around. Your thoughts ?
