The automatic update has not yet taken place. >:(
Yet it is set to automatic update.
If you don't want to wait, you can always update manually. ;)

Hi, not sure what you mean, Microsoft doesn't provide any updates for W7 anymore.

Hi,
What i mean there was a conflict with a avast free component and windows installer few release before this one.

As the issue was reproductible with avast team they correct this problem.

But with this last release the issue is coming back.

As soon as i removed Free avast, windows installer is running without problem.

Thanks for your help.

How long do you have to wait longer?

I would like to understand if the automatic update works or if every time I have to remember to see if a new version is out.  ;)

Thank you.
Thank you and good day!

Hi, not sure what you mean, Microsoft doesn't provide any updates for W7 anymore.
There are still  periodic updates "malware removal tool" (KB890830 v5.82 , v5.83, ...) which continue to use the MSI on W7.
The last one for me was on September 9th and I had big difficulties to install it on my 2 w7 (due to avast?).

Today it finally updated itself after requesting me to reboot.
For now it seems not to cause problems for the PC.  ;) :)

Hello

I'm hoping someone here can help me. I upgraded my Windows 10 system last week. At the end of the upgrade, it advised that Avast wanted to upgrade as well, so I said yes and that upgrade went ahead.

However, somehow during that process Bitlocker has been triggered. I did not set up Bitlocker when I bought my laptop in February this year, so I do not have a recovery key. I've been speaking to Microsoft and they suggested that the Avast update might be responsible for this.

After speaking to Microsoft and Lenovo technocal support for days now, I still have no clear answers and can't get into my computer. I can't even do a clean install of Windows because I'm locked out of the c drive.

If Avast, or any Avast users, are aware of this happening and know what the fix is, I will be forever grateful. Just to confirm, I did not set up Bitlocker so there is no recovery key - I've looked on the appropriate section of Microsoft's settings 50 times in the hope that it might appear, but no!

Also, one last idiosyncratic thing... I'm running Windows 10 Home which Microsoft say is not compatible with Bitlocker. So I'm actually stuck in a paradox!

Thank you in advance,
Anna

"Rescue Disk" section is here:
https://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=6.0
I have not tried to create a new Rescue Disk USB with 20.8, but was eventually working OK with 20.7.
If you saying you are having a problem creating a Rescue Disk with version 20.8. If you are, please start a new thread in the Rescue Disk section.
Please indicate Avast version and whether free or paid.
Also Windows version.
