    Hello Friend,

    Well, there is some problem in internet connection or your Avast 7 antivirus. First you should check whether your broadband net connection have any issue with spped and connectivity. If there is no such issue then the problem lies in the avast antivirus. You should open Avats antivirus control panel and check whether automatic update option is enabled or not. Sometimes, if you disable auto update option you have to update your antivirus database manually.

    I do believe there is some issue with your broadband connection as sometimes the speed pf broadband is very erratic. Hopefully, by performing the above check up you will be able to determine the cause of the problem.

    What you are encountering due to internet connectivity error while Updating Virus Database, in your system,might be as a result of some trash programs generated into the system and causing the connectivity error.

    For a fix try this.

    Click Start, in the search box type cmd, press enter.
    Right click cmd,
    Select Run As Administrator,
    Type sfc / scannow and press enter. Let the utility fix any system file related error present in the system.

    If the above measure fail to provide any result, go for the next,

    Click Start--All Programs--Accessories--System Tools--Disk Cleaner, run the tool and clean the system.
    Exit and reboot , try updating the antivirus. It should respond except the Antivirus Updater is corrupt.
    You need to install another version of Antivirus to fix the problem then.
