    After getting 17063 to install by removing Avira, I tried Avast but found it way too much hard sell and very slow internet. Then I installed AVG and got along ok. Today I installed 17074 with no problems. Way to go Microsoft!

    HI Ted,

    you are aware that Avast and AVG are the same company?. ;) I tried Avast for a very short while and found it to have way too many pop-ups for my liking, I went back to Windows Defender!. :)

    Yes I know but the software is a lot different. Try AVG.

    Yeah, the software itself is still very different. The virus definitions database has been merged though. BTW, I dislike both of them. I used AVG for over 10 years, but it uses way to much system resources. And Avast, as you said is a walking advertisement. But putting it in game mode quiets most of it.

    I do not have third party antivirus software on my systems anymore. I had to get rid of avast recently as it blocked my system from updating (the update service was not running although it actually was). Now I am using Windows defender even on my Win7 systems...

    Nevertheless the new version 17074 installed on my laptop without any problems....

    Installed on both of my IP Desktops yesterday. But then they are older computers, Dell OptiPlex 755 and Dell Inspiron 531S, and are still quite usable.
