A question about Avast audible & pop up updates

  1. In previous versions of Avast, I'd get a pop up & a female voice telling me my Avast definitions have been updated. I have not been seeing/hearing them & have NOT changed ANY settings. Any help on getting them back if possible would be nice, thanks.:)

    So, under Settings > Sounds, all the boxes are checked? What about Popups? Mine is the default 20 seconds.

    If those are there, then maybe go into the Control Panel > Programs & Features. Select Avast from the list, then click on Uninstall/Change, one of the options is Repair. See if that fixes it. I'd assume the repair options exists in XP.

    It didn't work so I guess the next program update I might do a clean install. Thanks for your help.:)

    That sucks. Clean install should fix it.

    Make sure you don't have Silent/Gaming mode on. Its on the Summary tap of the main window under Current Status, Im use Avast Internet Security so this might be different for you.
