Using the latest Android Studio 0.8 version. After creating a virtual emulator, the "Override the existing AVD with the same name" is always disabled. I can not check the the check box. The AVD name is EXACTLY the same. Honestly...I hate these emulators and probably should just hook up my phone and deploy to that rather then fiddling with these emulators. I spend more time fussing with the emulators then I do coding.

I don't know much about your problem, but about the emulators, I tend to agree they are a pain. You might try using the Genymotion (http://www.genymotion.com/). I haven't tried them yet, but plan to as soon as I have the opportunity. Several other posters here swear by it. Using an emulator is an invaluable tool, as it can lead to more diverse testing of screen formats, speeds, connectivity, and models than if you test only on your own hardware...
