Server Busy - Switch To - Retry

  Border View 11:08 01 Jun 2014

I have Avast anti-virus and run with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I use BT Infinity as my ISP/

I had problems yesterday with Malwarebytes update and at the moment that program is uninstalled.

This morning when I switched the computer on I received a message "Server Busy". This action cannot be completed because the other program is busy. Choose "Switch To" to activate the busy program and correct the problem. Two boxes "Switch To" and "Retry". The button for Avast was highlighted. The computer was merely booting up - I had not opened any programs.

I clicked on Retry. The Avast button disappeared and everything looks normal.

I did notice that this happened once yesterday when I was messing with Malwarebytes.

Yesterday I ran SuperAntispyware and Avast antivirus scan and all was clear.

What is happening please?

Avast runs at start up (you will see it appear in the system tray) and one of the first things it does is check for updates.

Thank you for responding Fruit Bat. So its Avast's Server which is busy? I should just wait and click on retry? Rather than going to a different server?

Yes just leave it, Avast will attempt another update check every so often (used to be 10 minutes).

Many thanks. Getting paranoid about possible take over of computer. Will do a green tick.
