But how can I find 'Windows Defender Security Center' or 'Virus & threat protection'?

Thx, seemes to become a partly success (see screenshots).
BTW: I could see your reworked version, too! Was it a 'png' file?
         Why and from where comes the VisthAux.exe error?

Windows button plus "I"

And I still don't understand why you run 2 malware products at the same time.

I prefer them too and that is what I used for the attachments, strange that you couldn't see them.

Since your browser is what is responsible for displaying internet content, including web pictures, I'd start by looking at your browser settings.  Maybe an add-on is responsible?  I've no issue with seeing .png files using Firefox.

Hi,
maybe it's the browser or the settings used within the Avast forum? I had also none errors since David posts his attachments! So, what's the reason?

Since you are now able to view .png files, likely a server glitch and not something on your end.  I'd keep an eye out tho.

Thx. In the meantime, I was able to fix Avast Free 15.10.4.2233 under W10 and Avast program update was set to manual (see first 2 screenshots)!

During the whole evening I did nothing with the laptop! One or 2 hours ago, I moved the mouse and the laptop showed me, that Avast had upgraded to 19.3. (see last 2 screenshots)!!!

But the biggest surprise was, that the SmartScan didn't show a NW scan error (see last screenshot)!!!

After the restart, I had to change s.th., which I don't want (see screenshots). This upgrade is unbelievable and now I'll see in the late morning, how the W10 laptop works.

Thx to everybody, who helped.

Looks to me that all of this could have been accomplished by doing a clean Custom install
as suggested a very long time ago.

Sorry, but you're wrong. All that happened in the background during my work at my main os (W7) and there was no reaction of the W10 laptop over hours, not even of the W10 desktop!
