Ok, any shenanigans with extensions and the registry on this one?

Any shenanigans at all?

Updated and no issues so far, but I don't see the alleged difference in the account sign-in that's being advertised?

Updated and after booting Windows Avast gives the popup attached.  It evidently refers to a component of the program "EVGA Precision XOC" which EVGA includes with my nVidia-based EVGA graphics card.  The last update to Precision XOC was in 2018.  So, I think version 23.6 has changes which now "detect" this.  I rather think this is a false positive and perhaps Avast should contact EVGA about it.

Please note: it is always best to click "See details" to reveal additional information before posting a screenshot of an Avast warning pop-up.

It's not a false positive, see below:

I installed this version yesterday but the shields were off so I turned them on. Never had this happen before.  All is working well now.

EDIT
Typo

Suddenly there was a problem - 4K rollers on YouTube began to show with the brakes - there is almost no pre -load of the video. It can be seen that it preloads a little, it reaches the end of the pre -load and the video stops, then it preloads a little again, then this situation is repeated.
At the same time, on Wi-Fi on TV any rollers, broadcasts in 4K go calmly (200 Mbit after all).
I tried to turn off Avast and about the miracle, the video in 4K began to show normally, it is clear that the pre -load is going on in advance, as it should.
Added the YouTube site by the exception, but this did not help.
How to fix it?

I recently received this update a few days ago on 7-8-23.  I did a scan and there's a new scan called operating system which is giving me 2 issue errors, one to turn on data execution prevention which is on and the other to disable notifications on the lock screen which I do not have on.  I am on a desktop computer.   How do I stop this from happening?  These are false issues.  I did a repair and it is still happening.  I am using windows 10.   Any fix on this?
