Avast version 7.0.1456

by rfergu21 / July 6, 2012 12:02 PM PDT

I downloaded the newest version and started having problems. The only other thing I downloaded after avast was spotify. After that, could not do windows updates. Uninstalled spotify, still could not update. Uninstalled Avast, and was able to do windows updates. I have no other antivirus software on the computer. Sad

Just downloaded?

Or downloaded then installed? It would be strange to find a "download only" causing problems.

What problems were you having? You mentioned Windows Updates, but what else?

Any error messages when Windows Updates did not work?

If this Avast includes a firewall then I suspect the firewall component may have been blocking WU.

Windows updates doesn't matter in installation in avast latest version.
