You mean you could actually update your Avast virus definition file in the first place?
For the past few days, I encountered this error message "Connection terminated, retrying......" whenever I tried the updating by right-clicking the program icon located at the system tray. Each time I had to cancel the updating because it really leads to nowhere.
Seems that the address "download2.avast.com" had persistently rejected access from my pc. I am running Outpost firewall in the background but I it had not caused this connection problem previously.
Some comments from anyone here?
