All updates i post have always been checked by myself and i can assure you the files from adobe are clean
You will need to make sure that your system is clean and i would suggest in the first instance you use something like HiJackThis to make sure that everything on your computer is accountable
If it is then it's just a false positive and nothing to worry about

Yes. My default position is that they are false postiives. Had to turn ZA off to get it to install at all on my W7 machine and on my Vista32 machine told ZA to deny giving it the elevated privilges it was asking for.

Looks like AVG has been updated to recognise it as valid. Would still like to know why the install thought it needed those extra system privileges though?

Edit: Looks likes "Silent Updates" is the answer:-

This is despite me setting it to *not* install automatically (only inform). Adobe have borked this up big time.

In my experience, every time there is an update, it defaults to select the automatic update (regardless of what you may have previously selected). You then have to re-select your choice over again!

Hence, you only have to miss this requirement to re-select once & it is you that ends up being "borked"! frown

Mine wouldn't update via the popup reminder but it did when I went to the website and did it manually.
