It's still not working for me.  I run a repair restarted 4 times and couldn't find anything with the last 3 numbers 722.

I don't think I have.  Where can I find it?

So this is not yet fixed? And if it is how can we update Avast or do what it's required?  :o

It's not in start up.
I also do not have it as a startup item in msconfig on Windows 7, which in any event doesn't work in Windows 8/8.1 - startup items there are to be found in Task Manager, and EMUpdate isn't included.

However across all computers it is an item in Task Scheduler... perhaps look in there to check?

With windows 8 you need to shutdown and then restart to activate the task if you are using fast boot.

I received the EM update when I started my system this morning, restarts will not trigger the task it is set for boot

Run a repair of Avast to re-install it

I run a repair last night.  You're saying run a repair of Avast to re-install it?  How can I re-install it when I already have it?  Should I click on uninstall?  I'm completely baffled at this point.

"Repair" means:

*. Click "Control Panel"
*. Click "Programs and Features"
*. Right-Click "Avast {Free} Antivirus"
*. Click "Repair"
*. Click "Continue"

I did the above, and then applied KB3000850, and everything seems to be OK.

Thank you for trying to help me.

Hello Avast,


After reading the fix had been deployed i did a fresh install of avast again can confirm i am running the new driver. The only problem i ran into was that the firewall wouldn't start but after running "repair" it is now working correctly with KB3000850 and i am able to access parts of the system like control panel, Restart, Shutdown & windows start-up programs once again load. Thank you for solving this issue so speedily. :D
