Title: Windows 10 is factory-initialized after installing Avast business
Post by: PAID on January 16, 2020, 09:11:05 AM
A security unpatched Windows 10 (RS2) has been found to be initializing. all application and data removed.

This is occurred by avast business installing and rebooting after removing Avast endpoint protection.

All applications and data are deleted and Windows 10 is factory reset.

but, there is no problem after windows was patched (RS4).

Do you have any information about this?

My customers want to know the reason why this issue was caused.

Do you know how to restore the PC?

Regards

Bongkeun

Is this caused only when migrating from legacy Avast endpoint protection suites? If so I would recommend uninstalling the legacy product first and then after reboot perform clean install of AV 19.7 and newer.

Were you trying to install the Avast Business on top of the endpoint? If so, have you tried uninstalling endpoint first before installing the Avast Business?
