Hi when i update my avast antivirus free edition - it gives me an error saying Last Encountered Error : The package is broken . Now what can be the cause of this , can it be possbily because i daily use cc cleaner to clean up my pc registry or what ?????

And what can i do to fix it ????

Dont use the registry option all the time. It can or will delete valid entries for some programs. If you dont know what entries ccleaner is removing

It could be caused by one of two things - Damaged Software - or as I've seen it many times, an infection has gotten in that Avast missed and killed Avast and wont let it update.
