i really don't know what to do or where to be in this forum but i have avast 6.0.1289 and windows is telling me that it is out of date. when i try and go into avast and update it doesn't do anything. i tried to uninstall from add/remove and that don't work either. avast is saying i am fully protected. why can't i update or uninstall and why am i getting the warning from security center saying my virus protection is out of date?? please please help me...thanks
First download and save a new copy of the latest avast http://www.avast.com/download-software then follow the instuctions here for removal of you current version http://www.avast.com/uninstall-utility

Your recieving the warnings because avast is now at 7.0.1426 so your quite outdated, i also recommend when installing the new version that you read through the process properly so you can untick the features that may not be required ( google chrome on first screen ) then proceed with a custom install where you'll have the ability to choose what security features you want or not.
