avast won't allow flash player upgrade! Help!
« on: January 30, 2013, 06:37:58 PM »
I've tried three times to upgrade flash, but avast kicks in immediately and blocks the installation.  Can anyone give me some advice?  THANKS!!!

No worries, it should work fine as it's only the adobe web installer that causes the problem, the stand alone I directed you to always works for me.
