Hmmm, have you re-booted yet?

sorted it out the malware section on security centre in vista did not recognize it as being able to update (note to the software engineers who designed avast to fix this small bug) now set it to not monitor ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Uh...it isn't avast that you have issues with, it's windows. You were directed to the windows security center not the avast software.  :)
