Avast Free Antivirus Error: Cannot connect to server when updating antivirus definitions.

Greetings,

After installation of Avast Free Antivirus, when trying to update antivirus definitions or antivirus software, we get the following error:
“Cannot connect to server.”

This can be resolved by following the below mentioned steps:
1) Open Antivirus Software [Clicking on the yellow icon in the taskbar near watch]
2) Click on ‘Settings’.
3) In the navigation, select ‘Updates’.
4) Click on ‘Proxy Settings’.
5) Select radio button ‘Direct connection (no proxy)’.
6) Click on ‘OK’ button to save changes.

Try updating the antivirus definitions now.

It might be done already!

Regards!
