Hi everyone,
I'm using Win 10 Home, 1709 (build 16299.125), Avast Free Antivirus 17.9.2322 and had to manually modify the registry to enable the Microsoft security update. It worked fine
Bye

If your AV was up to date, that should not have been necessary.

I'm using Win 10 Home, 1709 (build 16299.125), Avast Free Antivirus 17.9.2322 (build 17.9.3761.278). When I check for updates in both windows and avast, it says that there are no updates. However, I cannot see the windows update (kb4056892). Neither do I see the QualityCompat registry. I don't think that either has been added/updated but I don't understand why.

I'm using the following software.

* Avast Free Antivirus 17.9.2322
* Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 3.3.1.2183

Avast didn't set the registry key after updating the program. However, Malwarebytes did set the registry key. Why didn't Avast set the registry key?

Isn't it a problem that there are multiple programs that set the registry key? One program may be compatible, but another program may not.

I'm running the AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition processor on Windows 7 SP1 32-bit and that processor is in the list below. And I read that machines won’t boot specifically with the Phenom II processor.

I'm going to wait for the February 2018 rollup instead of installing the January 2018 KB4056894 rollup in Windows Update.
