Stopped updating antivirus signatures
Windows 8.1
Avast Free 23.3.6058
Belarus
What's happened? I've been using Avast since 2000 and it's such garbage

Read the first post from 07 April 2020 again, it is talking about Avast 8 and NOT Windows 8.  So your problem is something else an may well be your location.

So your problem is completely unrelated to this topic, which should be in its own new topic.

I can't understand your logic, if it is so garbage why would you be using it for 23 years !

It's in the sense of "garbage happened." Never had a problem before and didn't think it was bad.

I suggest that you start your own new topic and explain exactly what is happening and or warnings/errors that you are getting.

Given your location, I don't know (as an Avast user) if the issue might have to do with the ongoing situation in Ukraine and sanctions imposed (that too would be off-topic in this topic).
