There aren't any problems in the latest stable release
Not? Muhahaha, if I would name them all here this post would be huge !

There is no stable release as all versions released have many bugs.

Build 14936 was the last build that had no problems with 3rd part AV's.
Microsoft sitll hasn't addressed the problem. That's one way to force you to use their own Defender.  :(

Thanks for reporting. We need to wait...
The bad is that MS seems not even list the problem in the known problems.

Hello,

This issue is known and we are working on a fix. Currently the way to download files uncorrupted is to turn off Web Shield. I'm sorry for Your troubles.

Libor

My web shield AND EVERYTHING ELSE is turned off, but despite renewing my subscription in July, your company appears to be trying to force me to pay again! I have contacted support, but in the meantime am uninstalling Avast and downloading a free antivirus program as I need to work!!

I got a report in the Japanese forum that claims both Web Shield and Secure DNS caused this problem.
Main: Win10 Pro 20H2 64bit / Core i5-7400 3.0GHz / 16GB RAM / Avast 21 Premium Beta(Icarus) / Comodo Firewall (testing again)
Mobile: Win10 Pro 20H2 64bit / Core i5-3340M 2.7GHz / 8GB RAM / Avast 21 Free / Windows Firewall Control

And what is causing the same issue in other antivirus? Avast is not alone here...

Win 10, of course...
But Avast have to fix this before Win10 stable build get released, or there will be a mess. :-\
"Slow" ring beta also has this issue, I doubt Microsoft will do something about this considering the remaining time.

I'm on build 14936 and set the update sequence to the slow ring. Avast is working quite well. :)
