Windows 10 Updates Blocked for Avast, AVG Antivirus Users

Microsoft has blocked updates to Windows 10 for some users who are using antivirus tools on their system from top cyber-security firm Avast and its subsidiary AVG.

Users who are trying to update to recently launched “Build 1909” or November 2019 Update to Windows 10 found that there’s no update to install if they are running AVG or Avast in the background, the Inquirer reported.

According to the Tech Giant, it has found a compatibility issue between the free antivirus tools and Windows.

“Microsoft and Avast have identified compatibility issues with some versions of Avast Antivirus and AVG Antivirus. Any application from Avast or AVG that contains Antivirus version 19.5.4444.567 is affected,” read the issues page for Windows 10.

To get around the block, users need to download and install an updated version of Avast or AVG.

Microsoft has reported a compatibility problem on AVG and Avast for the first time. Avast acquired AVG in 2016. Both AVG and Avast have released their support pages on the issue.

Microsoft has issued a compatibility block on Windows 10 updates for versions 1903, 1909, and 1809 due to a compatibility problem with certain Qualcomm Wi-Fi drivers.
