I have already fixed it, not sure if it will get into next release but I hope it will.

Just updated to the latest release and the issue remains, I appreciate as indicated that this may just mean it didn't make the release but just want to make sure I'm still not alone.
In any event thanks for your efforts :)

Should be fixed in the latest build.
Try to reboot your system several times.

Asyn is right, yesterday I updated to the latest version and security center still claimed that there's no av software installed, but when I turned on my laptop today, it finally stopped doing so although I still don't get why Avast disables Windows Defender...

I restarted and it was still there but I just noticed it randomly went away and now reports as on which is great, a shame defender is now turned off by group policy since it ran fine alongside avast but I understand.

Thanks all :)
