    Earlier i installed avast av and apparently i need to download and install adobe flash player to see the statistics section but the odd thing is that i have flash player already installed on my computer.
    When i downloaded the flash player and attempted to install it was flagged as a malware installation by comodo programs manager.naturally i stopped the installation.Is this normal seeing as its avast that downloaded the file.
    Any ideas how i can get round this please.?
    Thanks.:'(

    if you downloaded it from adobe, report the fp to comodo and let the installer complete.

    you need to have BOTH the adobe flash player plug in and the ax version installed. same thing 2 different versions. i.e. internet explorer version and the other one for browsers like firefox. then you should be fine. get them from adobe directly.
