Two times I've tried upgrading Avast to patch it but I still get an unsecure reading when Secunia scan is complete. Help!!!

What is the path to the insecurity?

To locate the exact file that the Secunia PSI has detected, use or switch to the ADVANCED interface, then :

1 Click on the + sign of the programme to “expand’ it.
2 Click on Technical Details in the Toolbox to see the installation path of the detected file. (Copy (CTRL+C) & paste (CTRL+V) the Installation Path of the file back to the Forum if U are unsure what to do next).

I use avast! Home Profesional and I do not have a problem updating avast! definitions.

Are you running a software firewall?

I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit. I am using Secunia simple. When I updated Avast the update was successful but its not changing Secunia's reading.

Initially I chose to update this program through the utility in Secunia and despite doing this twice it did not update the program to the latest build version 4.8.1356. I then right clicked the avast! icon in the taskbar and chose the "Updating" option. This brings up two choices. In order to update the program, choose "Program Update". The other option "iAVS Update" only updates the anti-virus database.

After rebooting the computer (and I have two different o/s (XP Home SP3 and XP Professional SP3 on two different laptops), Secunia still did not recognise the update. Only after having Secunia re-scan the program after the reboot did I receive a message indicating there were no insecure programs.

Hope this helps anyone encountering the same problem.
