Well your definitions are 5 days out of date and no doubt would shortly be getting a warning from avast.

What happens if you try a manual Virus Definitions update ?
Latest version is 120307-0 and there is also a new avast version, just released today 7.0.1426, but avast 7.0.1407 was released on the 23rd February 2012.
Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 21.3.2459 (build 21.3.6164.561) UI 1.0.609/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security

In the update box I only have the option of - 1) Engine & Definitions   2) Program.
Nothing happens with either of these.
