OK, I'm getting really frustrated.
I've tried implementing advice I've seen given for other posts....but nothing is helping.
tried going through add/remove programs and doing "repair" but that changes nothing.

Don't get frustrated, we're trying to help you. :)
First use this: http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility
Then please install avast from scratch.
If your problem persists, post back here.

OK, here is where I will probably frustrate you  :P

The instructions say to download to my desktop....I have no idea what that means ? CORRECTION figured that one out and done.

I don't know how to start windows in "safe mode" ?

I know.....pathetic....but I'm old school (pre computer)  :-*

To save to desktop is to click "save" instead of "run" when you download.  Choose to save to desktop, this will make it easy to find for when you install avast.

Restart your computer & keep pushing f8 till your computer goes into safe mode.

I'm not frustrated, after all... ;)
Restart your computer.
As your computer restarts but before Windows launches, press F8. 
On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press F8 when the boot menu appears.

love the update having no issues (except the few normal ones also from previous builds but nothing major) but otherwise this new build is running great!! still have the firewall rule issues with it when you delete a rule say for a program to update it does not re-create it if you try re run the update after deleting the rule. also if you delete the firewall zone it will not re-detect and create the zone again either. otherwise seems fine

Thanks for the help. I tried both ways and it still doesn't clear up the issue in the Update section.

I guess I'll just have to wait. I don't understand why this doesn't work and I wish someone from Avast would respond.

What a pity, I thought one of the two update-ways could be the solution for your problem.

Sorry, I haven't another idea what you can try additionaly. :-[
Deinstall with the avast! removal-tool und reinstall once more - I think, this make no sense, but otherwise, what could you lose?!

Wish you good luck!  :)

Great!

Had problems with previous versions. Had switched back to version 4. Today, installed 507 over v4 and voila! everything is just fine.

Thanks
