My avast antivirus is not updating X rated dateing
I don't know if you (or anyone else) is still reading this thread, but if so, please let me know if you fixed your problem and how. It would be nice if you told us exactly which antivirus software you're having problems with..
The HOSTS file can be located in the following location windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts assuming that your Windows directory is named Windows and not Winnt or something similar.
Another possible location of your connection problem would be your Firewall (which you didn't mention having or not having) - check it to see that it is not set to deny the apps making connections for updates.
I have a connection, but everytime I hit update, the error messages say no connection found.
I\u0027ve deleted AVG and Trend\u0027s, they did the same. Before the infection, this was not a problem, all updates were automatic.
There are probably countless websites out there that offer various levels of hand-holding.
