[Bug 10.3.2219] Software updater shows Flash for Windows 8
« on: June 16, 2015, 02:56:59 PM »
Hello all,

After updating to 10.3.2219, Software Updater shows "Flash Player ActiveX (Windows 8 )" even for Windows 7  :-\
Please see attached image.

Thanks, NON

Have you tried to reset the database ?

From your screenshot : Settings - Database reset (troubleshooting) - Reset database now

Thanks for suggestion Rednose, and thanks for confirmation DJBone.

To all you guys.

Does the log ( Show log ) show anything ?
My guess is that in the colom of INFO messages there should be WARN messages releated to your issue(s) as well.

Here's a sample of just one of the products it's checking:

15/06/15 18:37:44    INFO: <1302>  Product name: 7-Zip Filemanager (32 Bit)
15/06/15 18:37:44    INFO: <1302>  REGISTRY_KEY = <SOFTWARE\7-Zip>
15/06/15 18:37:44    INFO: <1302>  Current state = NOTINSTALLED
15/06/15 18:37:44    INFO: <1302>  Product is not installed
Obviously, there's a problem. This problem wasn't there prior to the Avast update.

I had the same on my Win10 PC. Do you have already reseted your database? It worked for me.
