Have your Adobe Flash Player to install updates automatically like I have it in my Windows 7 OS. Did you go to add/remove and repair avast? Do a repair of avast via add/remove and follow the instructions. After repairing restart your computer manually.

Oh ok! Mine is fine. Probably a glitch on the Avast Software Updater. Sometimes it appears as a glitch and sometimes a bad vps update comes up and it messes up the avast software updater list. It happened to me once before. I will report (attract attention) to your 1st post to admin so an avast member can look into it.

As I said, I don't have the problem. If it isn't an Avast problem, then even Avast can't fix it.
Guess we'll have to wait and see.

I didn't have the problem either, this can happen on occasion. If you know it is up to date ignore it for a day or try rebooting or an avast repair (since you already tried reset the database).

Hi,

could you please provide the software updater log file?

You can find the file under "C:\ProgramData\AVAST Software\Avast\log\swhealthex.log"
