Avast Software Updater issues
« on: November 15, 2020, 09:00:37 AM »
Hey there,

I did not see a section for this, so I put it here.
This morning I got a popup from Adobe Flash that I need an update. I went into avast software updater and I saw this: (btw, how can I insert an attached picture in the post?)

There are 2 problems here:

1) Avast says Adobe is fine, no need for an update, while I have the update warning from avast.
2) Avast wants to downgrade my Firefox.

I have seen Avast not realizing that there is a new flash version before, but the FF downgrade seems quite serious.

A 3rd issue is that Avast updated my Free CCleaner to a 2 week trial Professional one. So basically used up my trial for no good reason.

I think this tool needs some more development time.
