rechargelife,

I agree with everyone here.  You have way too many security software on your machine, as well as too many other programs that are doing the same thing, which will not only slow your system down but also cause conflicts.

I have also worked with enough users on this forum to trouble shoot with them the problems that ASC, IObit and SB with TT has caused.  As mentioned earlier, Ad-aware is now obsolete and has been replaced with MBAM (Malwarebytes http://www.malwarebytes.org/). 

It's fine to layer your security software as long as you don't cause conflicts and over-kill.  You are doing both.  Please take a look at all our Signatures that are trying to help you and you will see that we do not have the number of security software that you do and we have no conflicts yet we have excellent protection on our machines and we work with helping keeping people malware-free every day.

Please listen to our suggestions and uninstall via the vendor's uninstaller's tools the following making sure you reboot in between each uninstall:
- Ad-aware
- ASC
- IObit 360
- SB with TT
- Emisoft
- Most of your cleaners and optimizers are redundant and most likely conflicting with each other. (see CCleaner below)

Add:
1. Malwarebytes (Pro if you want maximum protection - resident; Free if you want on-demand)
2. You need a firewall (FW).  You can use the Windows 7 Firewall.
3. CCleaner (as long as you uninstall all your other cleaners and optimizers). There is a Slim version available as well without toolbars at http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/builds.  Most of us use it for a cleaner and it also is a registry cleaner as well.

After doing your uninstalls, try an Avast Repair:
- Go to Control Panel > Add/Remove programs > Avast Antivirus.
- Scroll down and choose Repair function in the pop-up window.
- Reboot.

If the Repair fails to fix your problems, then an Avast uninstall and clean install is most likely needed.

Let us know if this fixes your problems.  Thank you.

I downloaded the updates from http://www.avast.com/download-update and still it says that the updates are not for ver6.0.1035 and 1027...?

Please.
