Windows 10 and Avast Internet Security.
« on: April 24, 2015, 04:50:13 PM »
What is the procedure to install AIS in Windows 10 TP Build 10061. I tried once and the firewall would not turn on Windows Defender went crazy and I lost use of The Windows Firewall. After this mess I had to perorm a clean install of Windows 10. I would like to use AIS as I have another year and 1/2 's worth of subscription left. Any help would be appreciated.

It did not for me. Do you have to turn off the windows firewall and defender?

No they will turn off automatically, although on the previous build for some reason windows had to tell me at every boot that defender was turned off

What build do you have ?

I will flash up the VM and show you Avast working

No error just that defender is in the tray closed and Windows Fire wall would not start and neither would Avast's. I wil try it again. and report back.
