Apparently the update can be manually installed.  I found it here:

http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4056898

I installed it on one 2012 R2 machine successfully, but it did not have Avast.  My Avast machines are not getting Avast engine updates, and Windows Update is not offering the Jan security update.

It is compatible.

See: https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=212648.msg1439270#msg1439270

Does this include the Avast Free version 17.9.2322? I don't see the required registry key, and running the Avast updater says I have the latest program and database updates.

And so I am not seeing the Win patch (for Win 10 Pro)

CORECTION: I *do* have the key. Stupidly, I was looking for the reg key under "Current User", rather than HKLM.

So I *do* have the key, but I have *not* been offered the update from MS yet. My apologies, I was wrong.

(as a side note - full protection apparently also requires a firmware update for your hardware, and my self built PC hasn't had a new BIOS update for 2-3 years ... <sigh>)

No RegistryKey in Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion for me

my avastVerrsion is: Avast Free Antivirus 17.9.2322 (build 17.9.3761.0)
> System seems to be up-to-date

windows is: Win10 Pro (ver 1709 Build 16299.125)
> also no updates offered

how can determine what to do?

Same here. Windows 10 Pro, Avast Internet Security (latest version and definitions), no registry key. I'd love to hear why the heck Avast didn't create the key.
