FYI

Running Avast Free v17.9.2322 (Build 17.9.3761.0) on W10 v1709 (Build 16299.192) laptop, with Intel Core M-5Y10c CPU

Reg.Key correctly created when I did an in-place update to current Avast Version (over weekend). KB4056892 auto-downloaded by Windows Update, last night and installed with no probs, just now.

Nice when something actually works correctly!
That's because you waited long enough for them to get the bugs out. :)

Hey guys. Received KB4056892 today (finally!), installation seems to ran fine but Windows Update history says that it failed with error 0x80070643. Check for Updates states that there are no updates available. My build is now displayed as 16299.192. Ran /wmic qfe list in cmd and it also shows KB4056892 as installed. So the update installed in fact? Anybody here with the same issue?

I uninstalled and reinstalled Avast and I'm still not getting the registry key to appear on my Windows 7 desktop.  What should I do?

To be secure i need update my web browser, install windows patch and update BIOS. So all motherboards will now have new BIOS for download? My motherboard is 4 years old and latest BIOS was released in 2015. I don't belive they create new bios for all motheboards.

I suggest you wait till someone who runs Windows XP can answer that question for you.

Bob is right on target.  Unfortunately, as of this morning, we XP people still don't have a micro-update from Avast that corrects the new file-copy problem (and therefore impairs the current updates, including for Meltdown and Spectre).

If anyone can get Avast to post here (and in a few other threads on this board) when to expect this fix, please do!  Thanks.
