    Can anyone help. Since earlier this year I have started to get a lot of pop ups requiring my Firewall (Look n Stop) and Process Guard to reapprove updating.

    With the definitions, approving usually does the trick for a while but I have to keep on doing it. With program updates I just get an error message which says Not enough user rights to continue.

    On the main Tab of PG 3.1.50 I have "Block RootKit/Driver Service Installation"

    When I get the error message "Not enough User Rights" there is, on the Alerts tab "Avast 19.Setup tried to install a service/driver named AvastTestService" even when the Allow Driver service button has already been pressed.

    When you manually try to update Avast it Starts up with Avast 20.setup each time you are effectively trying to approve each update excepting that I cannot.

    If I remove the tick from Main Tab (Block Rootkit/Driver/service installation) then I get a request to approve Avast setup again but with the next higher number ie Avast setup21. If I approve it the program updates OK. Then we have same problem all over again.

    Has something changed in PG or Avast can anyone explain how to set up PG for use with Avast Please

    Thank you very much

    From the PG help file:
    I think above should be applied with avast! updated besides running admininistrator user account. VPS updates need no such thing, you can use full PG ptotection if PG has "learned" the needed allowed processes.


    For Windows updates, this should apply, from the help file:
    Hope above helps you ?

    Do you have Avast set to do it's program update, not the VPS updates, on automatic or manual. There has been a number of program updates to Avast over the last few months and every update requires new permissions to be set in Processgaurd, if you have Avast set to do the program updates automatically then you will be seeing 4 or 5 PG pop-up warnings for various Avast modules including Avast.setup from time to time. Also your firewall, or at least this applies to zone alarm, will see Avast as a new program at each update and want new permissions granted again. Have you checked on the security tab on PG to see if avast.setup is set to permit allways. If none of that works maybe try updating to the latest PG might help, you can get it here http://www.diamondcs.com.au/processguard/pgsetup.exe
    Also it may pay to have a look on the Avast forum http://forum.avast.com/
    I know everytime Avast gets updated I get phone calls from people who's computers I've setup with PG, ZA and Avast [ with auto update enabled] asking why their getting heaps of pop-ups and warnings. At that stage I'm happy knowing PG and ZA are doing what they're supposed to do.

    I think we can be safe to say and agree that automatic program updates and hips like PG and others don't get along so well and are not meant to work that way.
    Avast also does not update the program as default without any user intervention!
    The default is to ask from user first. And the default settings work best for people.
    Suspecting now you a little, business/home, eh.

    You have also a very ugly avatar strangequark to say the least o_O
    But your answer is appreciated by me, no connection to avast except as a user, no worries.
