I'm running Avast! Free 8.0.1483, 130307-0 on Windows 7. (My earlier version wouldn't update correctly, so I re-installed by downloading the current version) My Software Updater keeps giving me errors for Adobe Air, JRE 7 (32Bit), JRE 7 (64 Bit), and VLC Media Player. I've OK'd a separate alert (I can't remember which program prompted it, but I'd read about it elsewhere, too) about updating Adobe, but it still shows an error.
Most annoyingly, the entry for JRE 7 (32Bit) will not stop "Preparing." This reminds me of when my earlier version of Avast! wouldn't update, even though it kept saying it was on "Step 1 of 3." I eventually had to re-install the new version. I looked on Avast!'s forum & followed the steps here, about resetting the database. But when I started it up again, it did the same thing.
(I took a screenshot & put it in my Dropbox folder but I don't know if I get in on here.)
thanks in advance!
PS - Should I disable it & use Secunia PSI like it says here?
