    Avast users, if your Win 10 Anniversary Update is failing, here's why


    Avast users, if your Windows 10 Anniversary Update is failing, here's why

    Users who have Avast’s antimalware solution on a PC with Intel microprocessors are reporting Blue Screens of Death (BSODs) when installing the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

    Avast users report that when the AU process is kicked off, the PC will eventually crash with a “system thread exception not handled” error. The system then reverts to the previous version of Windows, forcing the user to re-download the update (if they hadn’t previously downloaded it to a USB stick) and begin the update process anew. I have a machine running Avast, and I had the same experience as others reported.
    If you do have Avast installed and want to upgrade to the AU in the meantime, you’ll need to uninstall the Avast program. If that fails (as it did for me) Avast has also published a dedicated ”avastclear” application to facilitate the uninstallation process. (You may need to reboot into Safe Mode with Networking to get that to work.)

    Looks like Avast have release an updateto tackle the problem. My secondary hdd has Avast on it so many thanks for the headsup Borg - may have saved many a blue scren.

    The emergency update was already released for Avast 12.2.2276


    It is safe now to perform a clean installation using the on-line installer on Skylake CPUs running Windows Anniversary Update.

    Went ahead with the update after updating Avast first. Everything seems to have worked out fine
