How to force Avast to obtain updates inside of firewall

Seems that my firewall VERY frequently pops up with a request to let Avast! Antivirus Update access the Internet. I have a computer running Windows 7 and I need to configure my firewall so that all Avast clients inside of firewall can get updates. Is there anyone knows how to do this task? I need to do this process in safe manner so it works to update avast antivirus in proper format. Any help must need?

Try Vista Firewall Control onto your system. This is also one of the applications that specially build for such task. Hence try this thing and check what result arriving onto your system. It is Server Edition allows to set application network access permission individually per-user. Free Windows 7 and Vista Firewall Control protect your applications from objectionable network received and outgoing activity. Hence if you need it then only try this application. It works well on most of the system but we need to correctly use this application.

Re: How to force Avast to obtain updates inside of firewall

There is no service for avast.setup which requires internet access to be able to be able to update. You need to contact avast official site expert person for more information. I don?t see any suitable information related to this issue on any of the articles. Hence it?s better way to get real and accurate information from the official site expert person. It?s well for you and your system.
