Well this hasn't downloaded nothing as your version is the very latest 7.0.1466, only released a few hours ago. So when you did this program update did you actually reboot (as it was required) ?

Yes I did restart after program update, after that I rechecked and it downloaded like 47 KB ask me to restart again so I did
then it just kept asking me to restart after every check without downloading anything
I actually had this problem in the previous build not beta

That's strange I had that on one occasion with 7.0.1465 RC build, but I have been doing manual program updates hoping to pick up the new regular release version 7.0.1466. But even though for some reason it isn't available on my RC build, it hasn't asked for a reboot as it did once before.

Try a repair of avast:
XP - Add Remove programs, select 'avast! Anti-Virus,' click the Change/Remove button and select Repair, click next and follow.

Vista, win7 - Control Panel, Programs & Features, uninstall a program, select 'avast! Anti-Virus,' click the Uninstall/Change and select Repair, click next and follow.

You may need to reboot after the repair.

You're welcome, hopefully it will work.

I see you are running Windows 8 RTM 64 bit

As this is still a beta build (not a final OEM release) I would just go back to what worked prior to your problems with Avast with this beta OS.

Have you tried that yet?  Use aswclear.exe to completely uninstall all versions of avast.

How did the update work out in Win7, if you have that?
Windows 10 Home 64-bit 1909 Avast Premier Security version 20.1.2397 (build 20.1.5069.559) UI version 1.0.460.
