  1. I have a problem with Windows Update. I get to the page and the green bar starts moving but instead of then getting a list of available updates all I get is this error:


    [Error number: 0x80240030]

    Also I searched for solutions to Error number: 0x80240030 and followed all the instructions provided but nothing seems to work.


    Any ideas anybody?

  2. Ubuntu Linux is nice. My experience with it, was that its just run it and its ready and everything works.


    Slackware is a little different, it is more Unix-like. It puts more emphasis on the console. It is like Linux without flavour. :)


    Ubuntu Linux which you run comes with alot of software for everyday use. Check the Ubuntu software repositry, check SourceForge, check Freshmeat.








    I'm having a shitload of trouble with Ubuntu at the moment... screen not centered, network not right etc etc and I tried d/l clam but when it installs it fails and i get errors all over the place even after pressing the shut down/restart button... When I do get all that stuff fixed and working, if ever, I will be sure to use those sites!

  3. Check your firewall logs if their advanced enough to show if the updater .exe program was blocked.








    I think it must have been that because the firewall was blocking it, so thanks!

  4. there's also an open source firewall called ClamAV. you might wanna check it out. i tried the Windows version of it and it worked like a charm :).








    Well, I'm having some trouble with my repositories and so I can't install it right now, but when I do I'll give you my opinion!

  5. Was this a fresh installalation or did you install over a old copy?

    You may want to reinsallt avast.







    Fresh as fresh can be and also a fresh version of WinXP (just formatted). Next time I boot up and get onto Windows I'll reinstall though, like you said!

  6. Avast! keeps giving me a small reddish pop up frame just above the system tray area telling me it's having trouble updating. I poked about and checked everything in the program and all the connection settings seem to me to be correct.


    I try to manually download updating via Tools/Updating and clicked on both of the options there and nothing seems to happen. In Settings there are also some options for manually updating and "update now", I've tried them all and yet that red pop up keeps coming up.


    What am I doing wrong?
