thanks! installed thru GUI on Win7 SP1 and no problems (however, systray icon sure is busy [it spins when I type] and CPU was really high for a bit)

Avast 2233 prevented upgrade to Windows 10 Insider Build 10547 for me.
Uninstalling it before upgrade and reinstalling after worked though.

Edit:

On second note:
It does not run correctly on Buld 10547. The UI never starts, and the PC was very unstable, including not being able to shutdown.
I can confirm that. I had to roll back my Windows 10 upgrade.
After the rollback to build 10532, my system still retained Avast version 10.4.2223 which was updated while using Windows 10 build 10547. ???
I don't understand it just reporting it.

No problems on my windows 10 upgrade to  10547, once I managed to install it (3 attempts)
First few boots were a bit iffy and I nearly rolled back.  But, now all is well on my system (apart from IE)

Updated on XP perfectly fine, runs perfectly fine , but a weird bug has reared it head: every time the pc starts the GUI is up and doesn't closes by itself, it has to be shut down. Not a big thing, just a minor irritation, but it might be the sign of something worse lurking in the darkness.

I did a clean install of this version on Windows XP SP3.  All went well until I restarted the system and something hanged after logon.

I use POSReady 'Patch Tuesday' updates.  Is this known to cause problems with Avast?

Needless to say, I use alternatives to Avast (I do not miss the 'emergency updates').  The last version of Avast which will work for me on Windows XP is 2015.10.2.2215.  All subsequent versions are unusable.

Instead of using something you know causes problems with Avast, why not use something that continues to give you updates for Windows XP

I noticed something else - the update popup no longer appears immediately after boot and to my knowledge it hasn't appeared since the update. Again a cosmetic bug, the definitions do get updated.

Updated fine via the GUI on Win 7 SP1 x64 -- interestingly, didn't get the "complete your installation" (Chrome opt-out) screen after the reboot this time.  I haven't been in here all that often lately -- did they finally smarten up and dump that while I wasn't looking?

If you are talking the update options (google chrome) screen, see example of a previous screen. Then yes I also got that one too. But I did a custom install over the top of 10.4.2232 beta on this XP system.

Thank you bob3160.  I don't know if it causes problems which is why I asked the question.  I will follow the link you kindly supplied.
