Good day,on two separate full scans I've had AVAST freeze my computer.  I would like to verify whether this is symptom of a possible infection or a one off issue.

Your version of Java is outdated and needs to be updated to take advantage of fixes that have eliminated security vulnerabilities.

You can manually check your present version and update as recommended. (You need to check with Internet Explorer) <- Important.

Be careful not to install malware posing as Java update!
Important read this blog.

Quoted from the page.
"In light of the recent events surrounding Java, users must seriously consider their use of Java. Do they really need it? If yes, make sure that users follow the steps we recommended and get the security update directly from the official oracle website." at:

How to disable Java in your browsers

If still present after these updates remove these old version(s) via the Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features.
Java 8 Update 141 (HKLM-x32\...\{26A24AE4-039D-4CA4-87B4-2F32180141F0}) (Version: 8.0.1410.15 - Oracle Corporation)

Thanks for the prompt reply,I've removed the outdated Java updates.


I haven't come across any problems with Avast and will be running some security scans in the meantime.
