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.

Edit:

The February 2018 KB4074598 rollup worked fine.

April 10, 2018 Status Update
We are lifting the AV compatibility check for Windows security updates for supported Windows 7 SP1 and Windows 8.1 devices via Windows Update. We continue to require that AV software be compatible, and in cases where there are known issues of AV driver compatibility, we will block those devices from updates to avoid any issues. We recommend customers check with their AV provider on compatibility of their installed AV software product.

March 13, 2018 Status Update
Our recent work with our anti-virus (AV) partners on compatibility with Windows updates has now reached a sustained level of broad ecosystem compatibility.  Based on our analysis of available data, we are now lifting the AV compatibility check for the March 2018 Windows security updates for supported Windows 10 devices via Windows Update.  We continue to require that AV software is compatible and in cases where there are known issues of AV driver compatibility, we will block those devices from updates to avoid any issues. We recommend customers check with their AV provider on compatibility of their installed AV software product.
