I was having the same problem with the install stopping, but it didn't disappear. I had multiple avast entries in that registry key also. I've changed the value to just have one. I wonder how they all got in there? Hopefully, I'll be able to install windows updates again. If it does work, and I'll let you know, perhaps this should be put in the FAQ?

Maybe the team should figure out how so many avast entries are getting in there?

Well, that didn't fix my problem.  :'(  Oh well. I'll live with it.

What I do to install now is stop and put all avast services to manual, reboot, kill any that I missed as soon as the system boots, install, put them all back to automatic, and reboot.
