can anyone who had shutdown problems with 20.6 and 20.7 confirm that 20.8 solves that?
not trusting an update until that is resolved, that was pure hell
Afaik, it should be fixed in 20.8

Avast deducted my money from my account, I did not get any email or notification, but got alerted by the bank and I have cancelled every subscription since last year. Please refund my money

you are wrong, both 20.8 and 20.9 continue to have 5+ minute shutdown problems

the last working version is 20.5 but I cannot find any working/safe link for the 20.5 offline installer

Why are you saying that, clearly it is working for them or why would they report it is.
We have no idea what you are running on your system that is different to their system/s.  It isn't effecting everyone, I haven't had this issue either.

No shutdown problems here. Maybe it's something else that's running that's causing the problem?

Has program updating been changed for it to actually update automatically instead of still showing massive popup and yellow exclamation mark and you have to confirm it yourself?
