Avast still wants to upgrade IE11 on Windows 10 AU
« on: August 19, 2016, 01:32:53 AM »
Any word on when this will be fixed?   I don't mean to be snarky but I'm running the commercial (paid-for) version of the product and there's a small ad on the home screen asking me to upgrade to Premier so it can "upgrade my software automatically".   Since it thinks I should upgrade IE11 I'm just a tad skeptical about that.

It's a known bug. Simply mark IE11 as Ignore.
They should actually remove IE11 from the list since it's updated via the OS

Bob:  I do have it marked as ignore.  I just find it mildly humorous that I have to ignore updates at the same time avast is pushing that I upgrade to Premier so it can upgrade software "automatically".   I agree; Avast should just remove IE11 from its list of updatable software.

At least it's no longer trying to upgrade Firefox to the version I'm already running.    ;D

Their push ads aren't my favorite topic. I've also voiced my complaints.  :(
